The Voice Of The Spirit - Turning Points with God
The Voice Of The Spirit
The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things.
It has become increasingly difficult in this day and age for us to hear our own thoughts and feelings. In order to keep up with life, it seems we must travel at the speed of society, never stopping to take a deep breath and listen to the Holy Spirit’s leading. As frustrating as this may be, it is not a new challenge.
When Jesus walked the earth, He was constantly surrounded by a multitude of people; but He knew that the most important relationship He could invest in was with His Father, for it was His Father’s voice that would lead and guide Him. Therefore, He spent a large amount of time in prayer and conversation with God.
A woman was once asked how she knew the voice of the Spirit. She answered, “How do you know your husband’s step and your child’s cry from the steps and cries of all others?” For her, the voice of the Spirit was as familiar as the unique sounds of her husband and child.
In order for us to be sensitive to the Spirit’s leading, we must spend time getting to know His voice, because the more intimately we know Him, the easier it will be to hear His voice above all others.
Father, quiet my heart and mind so I may hear the leading of Your Spirit in my life.
