And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, you old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the Lord has said, even among the survivors whom the Lord calls. - Joel 2:28-32

In this passage, Joel is prophesying about The Holy Spirit being poured out. Here, he explains that through the death of Jesus, all believers will have access to the Holy Spirit and the power, dreams, prophecy, and visions that come along with it.

With the Holy Spirit poured out on all who believe, we are then given all the power that comes along with it. This is such a huge deal! If Jesus had never died on the cross for our sins, the Holy Spirit would have never been poured out over all who would believe.

Now we have full access to the power of God! He gave us His Holy Spirit!

God, would you help me to live from a place of knowing how powerful I am with Your Holy Spirit inside of me. Help to keep me humble, always realizing where my power and gifts come from and to keep a grateful heart for what you have done for me. Thank you for loving me and sending your Son to rescue me and pouring Your Spirit out because You love me. In Your sons name, Amen.
