Romans 8:11 tells us that the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead resides in us. With this knowledge we must understand that a wise person should listen to their spirit. That small still voice that encourages, realigns, reveals and confirms.
If we stop thinking so much and still our mind, we will “hear” the Holy Spirit within us encouraging us towards our gifting. So many times we look around for others to edify and encourage us. Unfortunately, others either don’t care or genuinely don’t know where our gifts lie. In either case it’s dangerous because we could possibly be steered in the wrong direction or worse be discouraged.
Realignment happens when we’ve detour from our path. The Holy Spirit will get your attention. For some it’s a quiet prompting and very subtle. For others it is a no-nonsense in your face moment that you can’t ignore. So, don’t get upset about the ‘Closed Door’. Stop! Recognize it for what it is. And Praise GOD!
This is a good one. You have to love it when the Holy Spirit reveals things to you. Because if you pay attention you become a very wise person. Maya Angelou once said, “When people show you who they are believe them!”. I truly believe that the person who listens to their Spirit is a “Spirit Seer”. By that I means that you are able to see the spirit in others. You know the right people to be in covenant with. You know that man or woman is not for you. You know not to take that job no matter how attractive it is. You know that house is not right for you. YOU JUST KNOW! Just knowing is a beautiful thing.
This is the one that ‘Parking Lot Prophets’ hate. You can’t walk up to me and tell me that The Lord told you to tell me anything. Why? I’m going to take what you tell me and run it by The Holy Ghost. And if its not confirmed in my spirit…somebodies a lie! (That’s not proper English, but you get what I’m saying.) The words you speak to me have to align with the Word I’ve been given. And if that doesn’t happen then that’s when you smile politely and just walk away.
