Acts 2:1-4 Thought/Prayer: Blustery. Topics: 2 at end.
“The Holy Spirit at Pentecost
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat on each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” (AKJV) (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)
TThe wind blows outside the window, strong with stronger gusts. As it blows strong and then retreats a bit . . . then blows strong again, it calls attention to itself. It seems that, although visually invisible, this restless wind can’t help but be auditorily noticed as it waxes strong and then wanes, over and over. Its bluster and blasts against objects are hard to ignore.
Why would this perhaps make one think of the Holy Spirit? In the Greek, the word Holy Spirit can mean “wind.” It was the sound of a great wind that took over the air in the house where the disciples and others were gathered to celebrate the Jewish day of Shavuot . . . celebrating the giving of the law to Moses on Mt. Sinai. Pentecost, to Christians, is that day – but celebrated not for the law, but as when the Holy Spirit descended upon the apostles and other followers of Jesus in that house.
It’s interesting that God gives us a reference point to the wind of the Holy Spirit, especially in earthly places where wind is a big part of the weather. A straight wind can, of course, do much damage; a twister can devastate. But the sound of the wind of the Holy Spirit is positive and brings power. This power resides in those who take Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
No, this does not mean that we go about being “windy” exaggerating people who talk too much and as known as big bags of wind. Please, no.
But perhaps when we experience a windy, gusty day, we may be prompted to pray for people and their struggles in life, including LIFE situations that can be so grievous. Perhaps we may pray that the wind of God’s heart, the Holy Spirit, may blow especially strong on these folks and bring hope and insight and inspiration.
