When The Spirit Kisses the Promises and Callings of God
During this time of year, we celebrate the coming of the Messiah into the earth. But before Jesus came onto the scene, the way had to be prepared for him. This was the calling placed upon the life of John the Baptist.
The angel told John's father that he would be filled with the Holy Spirit even from his mother's womb. Today we go back in time and witness this event through the pages of Scripture, and then ponder how this relates to us and the promises and callings God has placed within you.

Preparing The Way For The Lord
John was prophecied in the Old Testament as "The voice of one crying out in the winderness, 'Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.'" Conceived by an elderly couple as a promise from God, with a great calling on his life, John the Baptist was in many ways like you and me.
Without the Holy Spirit, John would have been just another human being with an unfulfilled promise and an unrealized calling on his life. But when the greeting of one in whom was the baby Jesus reached the ears of the one in whom was the promise and calling, the baby leaped for joy in her womb, and they both were filled with the Holy Spirit.
Do you see the connection? God has given you promises, both corporate and very personal, and he has placed callings upon your life. And for you to fulfill your purpose, recognize and step into your calling, and see the promises of God manifest in your life, you need the same thing John had: a filling and saturation with the Holy Spirit.
And if we are not daily filled afresh with the presence of God, and if the Holy Spirit is not moving in us and through us, then we're just wasting time and sacrificing souls. So pray for us, that God's Spirit would continue to move in an ever-increasing measure. And pray every day that God would fill you to overflowing with his Holy Spirit, manifesting in whatever ways he desires.
