Luke 24:49 (KJV)

49. And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Jesus instructed the believers to wait in Jerusalem until they had received what His Father had promised, namely, power from on high. Jesus had to ascend back to the Father so that He could send the Counselor, the promised Holy Spirit (John 16:7).

But notice Jesus did not give them an exact date or time of the arrival of the Holy Spirit, they had to wait!

The bible tells us that, 120 believers waited ten days to be clothed with power from on high (Acts 1:15). During that ten days they replaced Judas by adding Matthias to the 11 apostles (Acts 1:26). Perhaps they needed time to resolve some eternal issues, or maybe confess sin and remove jealously, bitterness, and envy. Maybe it took ten days to come to a place of complete unity as a community of Christ-followers.

Sometimes God has us wait, in order to allow us time to search our hearts, before He shows us the next step in our life.

Be Blessed in all you do!!!
