You Haven’t Seen Anything Yet!

8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Acts 1:8

Acts 1:8 is the key verse in Acts. The instructions here are simple – we are to be witnesses to others as to who Jesus is and to God’s love. But we don’t have to do that on our own. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to abide in us. And through the Holy Spirit was have the power, Jesus’ Promised Power to be the witnesses we are called to be.

Many people don’t realize the power they have been given. Even those who know of God’s blessings and have experienced the power of God working through them can become complacent and content. A person can feel that God has been good to them, but not grasp what else God has for them; how much more God wants to bless them. But with the Promised Power, there is so much more we can and will do. If you will trust in Him, you will realize – You haven’t seen anything yet!

He had spent so many long years walking across this earth.
So many things had the Spirit done through this man’s birth.
He knew he had lived a long life that had been truly blessed,
But he began to feel there’s something out there that he had missed.
Then inside of him he felt the Spirit begin to move, begin to flow,
Saying “You haven’t seen anything yet. There’s more for you to know.”

She had a good family and had all she thought she’d ever need.
There was nothing that held her down; by the Word she’d been freed.
But she knew there was a hole in her heart, and it slowly begin to ache.
There came a shifting in her soul that she didn’t know how to take.
Then inside of her she felt the Spirit begin to move, begin to flow,
Saying “You haven’t seen anything yet. There’s more to you I’ll show.”

The preacher thought back on all his years and the things he had seen.
Many of the flock were lost, some were found, many more left in between.
He thought of all the things God had done through those many years.
Remembering how God had been there through all the joys and tears.
Then inside of him he felt the Spirit begin to move, begin to flow,
Saying “You haven’t seen anything yet. Get ready for where you’ll go.”

Has what’s God’s done in your life left you content, wanting no more?
Do you hear the sound of doors closing and think nothing’s left in store?
But there’s another level for you that God has and wants you to know.
His Promised Power that He gave us all is still waiting to help you grow.
Open you heart and allow the Spirit to begin an to move, begin to flow,
Saying “You haven’t seen anything yet. Take My Hand and let’s go.”
