Greetings My Friends;
The last message was about hearing the Holy Spirit. Now we will get into acting on it. What I am about to write happens to the majority of us. It certainly has happened to me, and maybe you too.
You hear the voice of the Holy Spirit in your heart. You feel happy and privileged. Let's say he tells you to do something, and you get all excited about being chosen to be used.
Now you begin. You thank the Holy Spirit and ask for guidance, then proceed. In the beginning you do it every day. For the sake of an example, let's use talking to people in nursing homes. The idea is to help people find Jesus.
Every day you go out for a couple of hours to talk. Let's say you go to one home a day, and five a week. The same five every week. People are happy to see you. Well most of them are. You feel you are doing what the Holy Spirit says.
As time goes on, your human brain begins to kick in. You start to wonder, because it seems not much is happening. You may have hit the point a while back where you stopped asking the Holy Spirit for guidance . You might start to rationalize. If the Holy Spirit was really involved, people would be getting saved. That is just what satan wants you to think and believe.
I'd like to make a couple of things plain at this point. First of all you need to get back into the relationship with the Holy Spirit, in order to hear His voice loud and clear again. Recommit yourself and repent. Before you know it you'll be right back where you were in the beginning when this excitement started. The other thing you have to remember is, our job is to plant seeds. It is the Lord's job to make them grow. Just because we did not see the plants break the ground as yet, does not mean the seeds will not grow.
Never get discouraged, just do what you are supposed to do, follow what the Holy Spirit says, and keep planting those seeds. The Lord will do the rest. satan tries to tell you that stuff, because you're probably doing a good job, and he wants you to stop. He's just plain scared. So take pleasure in the fact that you're scaring the you know what out of him.
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation;
Father I ask you to forgive all my sins. I know Jesus suffered, died, and rose again for me. I truly repent, and acknowledge Jesus as my personal Savior, and I ask Him to come into my heart. Thank you Lord.
A Blessing From The Lord Through Aaron The Priest To The People
God bless you and keep you
God causes face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you
God lift up His face on to you, and appoint unto you peace
