The Voice of the Spirit

The Voice of the Spirit
C. Hayden 2-25-21
The past couple of weeks we have been talking about the importance of the working of the Holy Spirit in order that we might hear the voice of God. While God’s voice is often heard as we read the verses in the Holy Scriptures, it is the Holy Spirit who gives us revelation and understanding of what God is speaking to us. As well, the Holy Spirit will continue to speak to us throughout the day, bringing to light those things Jesus has said during those times of Bible Study and prayerful meditation.
First Corinthians 2:9-10 says this, “But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.’ But God has revealed them unto us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes the deep things of God.” God reveals things to us by His Spirit if we will simply listen to Him. Verse 12 of that same chapter tells us this, Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.” God will speak to us regarding His will through the Spirit that He placed in us at the time of our regeneration when we were first saved. When we are born again, when we call on the name of the Lord and make Him our Savior, the Spirit comes into our heart and is available to us, interacting and speaking to us the wonderful things. He opens the Word of God to us and guides us, utilizing our conscience, mind and spirit to speak so that we may listen and hear His voice.
Often, we fail to hear His voice because either we don’t really believe God is speaking to us, or we just choose not to turn our attention to listen for His voice, or we are distracted by other things in life and can’t hear what God would say. We are either the kind of soil that is too rock filled, shallow or thorn bush filled to be able to received God’s voice so that the Spirit is unable to get His message to our thick and stony hearts (Matthew 13:3-9). We need to be soil that is good, fertile, tilled and Holy Spirit led so that the seed, the voice of God can be heard clearly and consistently.
Be blessed even more!!
