September 01:2018

And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth
Acts 1:4-8 (NKJV)


To enable is to give someone the authority or means to do something; make it possible for. Enablement is what you need to succeed in any given field. We are all born with a yearning to make a success of our lives, to be purposeful about our living and, ultimately, fulfil destiny.

Desire is one thing. Actualisation and fulfilment are another. Considering all the vagaries of life, uncertainties of the future and wide spectrum of possible choices, many require guidance to navigate through life.

People struggle to attain and reach their goals and fulfil their innate desires, not because they have not exerted adequate effort. They want to step up to the next level of glory but wonder what they should do. The Holy Spirit is our helper. He is here to give direction and enablement. He is available to help us fulfil God's purpose in our lives.

How can you receive the help of the Holy Spirit? The first step is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and saviour and to acknowledge Him as the architect of your life. He is the author and finisher of your faith. With the new birth and the redemptive powers inherent, the Holy Spirit will partner with you and enable you, to the Glory of God.

Beloved, as you set your heart on this, get ready for the miraculous and awesome transformation in your life because everything the Holy Spirit sets out to do, He will do!
