1 Cor 2:4-5

4 and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. ESV

Clement sometimes had doubts about the existence of God. He had watched a documentary created to generate such doubts as a child. He lived most of His life having faith in God but sometimes the old doubt would resurface. He decided to share this problem with his pastor who confided in him revealing that he had the same problem too. This made Clement close to being an agnostic.

I have noticed that in places where Christians have so many such honest doubts are where a form of godliness has dominated for a long time but the power of God- the Holy spirit, has been forsaken. Clement's church was one that had never seen notable manifestations of the Holy spirit. They doctrinally did not believe in the baptism of the holy spirit nor did they believe in any gifts of the spirit, even tongues.

Even though we have hope of God’s coming kingdom that will physically dominate the earth, we have the Holy Spirit who gives the first fruits of these things to come. The manifestation of the spirit proves the existence and working power of our God (read 1 Cor 12).

Go into today with a desire to have more manifestations of the Holy Spirit in your life. It begins with the desire, then the manifestations.

Prayer: Father, i know you can hear me. I see the evidence of your power when I look at the mirror because it you that made us and not we ourselves. Please help me manifest more of your power this year. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
