Holy Hurricane


Without warning there was a sound like a strong wind –

no one could tell where it came from. It filled the whole building.

Then, like a wildfire, the Holy Spirit spread through their ranks and they

started speaking in a number of different languages as the Spirit prompted them.

Acts 2:2-4 THE MESSAGE



Let My Divine Wind blow through your life and cleanse you of iniquity.

I sweep away moral trash if you turn your heart in My direction.

I move you toward My will if you turn your heart away from all evil.

I flood you with light if you firmly refuse to walk in perverse darkness.

I purify you if you let My holy hurricane roar through your inner being.

I burn away undesirable elements if you let Me baptize you with fire.

I reassure you of My love if you nestle near My heart and detest sin.

I give you joy too wonderful for words if you trust My omniscient mind.



Let My Vitalizing Breath ignite your passion and set your soul aflame.

I resurrect you to new life if you desert your egocentric deadness.

I soak you with My Spirit Rain if you grow tired of emotional drought.

I help the young envision a brighter future if you believe My promises.

I help the old dream of a painless, tearless, deathless day if you trust Me.

I let you find life’s noblest purpose if you serve Me wholeheartedly.

I enrich your life infinitely more than you could ever ask, wish, or imagine.

I embolden you to live courageously if you hold My omnipotent hand.



Let My Holy Spirit change you from the inside out and revolutionize your life.

I cheer your heart if you become intoxicated with heaven’s sweet wine.

I lead you to know the truth if you turn a deaf ear to Satan’s propaganda.

I help you speak My native tongue if you are weary of the Devil’s dialect.

I teach you to speak beautiful languages if you really want to learn them –

sacrificial love, not selfish talk;  invulnerable joy, not ungrateful whining;

calm peace, not restless chatter;  lasting patience, not ignorant criticism;

kindness, not insensitive small talk;  lavish generosity, not stingy self-talk;

dutiful loyalty, not dropout talk;  angelic gentleness, not rude sarcasm;

supernatural self-control, not indulgent devil speak.

I inspire spontaneous creativity if you do not extinguish My eternal flame.

I energize you to do what pleases Me if you rely on My unlimited grace.

I empower you to accomplish all I ask if you trust My almighty power.

I steady your life as your Center of Gravity if you practice My Presence.

I grant you the pleasure of my company if you seek My omnipresent Spirit.
