Early in my ministry, I decided to spend one whole night in prayer. My purpose was to seek more power while ministering for the Lord. I had read in the gospels how Jesus sometimes spent whole nights in fervent prayer and that inspired me much. I had a very light dinner that night and sat down to pray. Though tiring it was a delightful experience. As the night progressed, I was a bit drowsy at times. I took care not to lie down lest I go off to sleep. My prayer topic that night, as I have mentioned before was for God to fill me with more of the Holy Spirit for ministering with power.
As the dawn neared, I was too tired and just leaned against the wall and dozed off. That was when the Lord showed me this dream. He showed me an unwashed jar and a hand washing the insides of the jar with water. After the insides were washed and cleansed with water, I saw fresh oil being poured into the jar and the jar overflowing with oil. The dream ended there.
The dream was an answer to my prayer that night. God was speaking to me and saying, “When you have been cleansed thoroughly with the Word of God, you will be filled with the Holy Spirit to an overflowing state.”
The Lord wants to fill us with the Holy Spirit, not only to minister the gospel with power but also to live strong Christian lives bearing good fruit. And if we pray and seek the Father in heaven for more power of the Holy Spirit, He will surely give us the Holy Spirit power in abundance.
The Bible says,
“For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit.”(John 3:34)
