A Genuine Move of God

And when Simon saw that through the laying on of the apostles hands the Holy Ghost  was given, he offered them money,

Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay my hands, He may receive the Holy Ghost.

But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.

Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.

Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine  heart may be forgiven thee.

Acts 8:18-22 KJV


Simon thought for sure he could buy the Holy Spirit. Peter let him know real quick that that would never happen. This is something that God gives to a believer that is committed to Him and it’s, ultimately, in His time and not ours. Money can’t buy a genuine move of God. When people truly repent and devote their lives to serve the Lord is when we shall see the Holy Spirit working in our midst. Our hearts must be right in order to receive the baptism in the Holy Ghost. Ask the Lord to help us search our hearts. We need to be filled with the Spirit of God, and you can’t buy that.
