How the disciples must have been glad when Jesus returned only to find out He was now ascending to heaven.  They would once again learn the value of waiting.  This waiting wouldn’t only be upon His return but also upon His Power to do the job He commissioned them to do.  We must learn to wait on both Him and His power in order to be effective. 

Yield

Lord, I will wait on You.  

Extra Discovery

Read Psalm 69:25 to see how even Judas’ death was prophecied in the O.T.

Revelation

We can be Mended by Christ and not experience His power.  How?  We are taught in the Scriptures to rely upon the power of the Holy Spirit.  This means that we learn to give up control and surrender our will to God and as we do that He Morph’s us into a mighty warrior for His Kingdom.  How is the battle of surrender and control going in your life?
