Listening to the Spirit

Christians believe that the Spirit of God lives inside of them. God sends it to the followers of Jesus about their conversion. 

The Holy Spirit does many things for the believer. He empowers us to live the Christian life, encourages us when we are down, and reminds us of God’s word when we are tempted. Another thing the Holy Spirit does is speak to the conscience of a Christian. He is that little voice in your head that speaks to you at unexpected moments. The goal is not to tell you some new truth, as the Bible has all we need for life and godliness. No, that inner voice whispers to you about ways God can work through you. 

Lately, I have committed to listening more to the voice of the Spirit inside me. And my encouragement is for you to do the same. 

Sometimes, you will think, “I should call that person and talk to them.” Other times it can be a reminder that “I need to pray for that person.”  Sometimes it might seem crazy when you hear, “I need to give this person some money (possibly a specific amount).” But, still, there may be times when it is as simple as “Drop them a text and tell them how much I appreciate them.”

I believe that God is working in mysterious ways, and part of following him is yielding to the voice inside your mind asking you to do something good for His kingdom. He will never put you at risk or lead you into sin, but he might guide you into a path that will be a blessing beyond what you can imagine.

So the next time you feel that nudge of the Spirit to buy them a gift, introduce yourself, write a card, stop for a visit, or any one of a thousand things, why don’t you give it a try and see where God leads you?

I can’t wait to hear your stories of how God is at work through you.
