If we’ve chosen to follow and obey Christ, we all have received a measure of the Spirit of God. However, let us not be content with this measure. Let us not be content with the “spiritual outpouring” that we may have received last week or last year, or during our initial spiritual birth. Let us be connected to God today, continuing to advance forward asking God for more of His Spirit even today.
Ellen White writes, “A connection with the divine agency every moment is essential to our progress. We may have had a measure of the Spirit of God, but by prayer and faith we are continually to seek more of the Spirit” (Testimonies to Ministers and Gospel Workers, p. 508).
In Luke 11:13 we are reminded: “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?”
So let us keep asking. Let’s keep asking for more!

Dear Heavenly Father, We know you long to do more for us as a people and church than we could even hope or ask for. Help us to keep seeking after you today and not be content with the outpouring you’ve given in the past. Give us a fresh outpouring now, even today. Amen.
