Battle Drill Daily Devotional
This week we focus on the gift of the Holy Spirit. We may have to wait for him, but he’s worth waiting for! You can catch up on yesterday’s sermon – part of our Therefore, Go series – called Rise Up and Go! here.
Read Acts 1:6-11 & 2:1-13.
Most of us our slowly coming out of lockdown following the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. We want to know what’s next.
When will things get back to “normal”? What does the future hold? When will all this be over?
These are understandable questions. But the Bible is clear: Jesus says that when it comes to the future, it is not ours to know. God knows, and if we trust him, that’s enough.
Our work is to receive the power of the Holy Spirit, and allow him to help us trust God’s plan. He will help us to believe God’s Word and allow it to allay our fears. He will assist us to focus on God’s presence in our present instead of our disappointments in the past.
With his help, we can choose to trust God even in the most challenging circumstances. His timing is always better than ours.
God hears your prayers. He’s still working. You may not see what he’s doing, but he has it all planned out. Trust in his timing today.

- Do you ever become impatient with God’s timetable? What can you do to hand control back to him?
