The Holy Spirit Is Gods Voice
I was thinking the other day about my life. I was looking at some old family photos and wondered what it would be like to relive certain areas of my past. Then I wondered if I had missed anything important in the past, if I were to live it all over again.
I thought about my success and failures.
Then I really started to look at my failures. I can say with 100% confidence, I would never had made those mistakes if I would have listened to that voice inside me. There were times the Holy Spirit was talking to me and I ignored that soft inner voice. I did it my way and then failure came, maybe not right away but it came. It was not until a few years ago when I was born again that I fully realized and understood the importance of that tiny voice.
That tiny voice is not my own brain telling me what to do.
It is actually a huge big deal! Jesus gave me His helper when He died on the cross so I would not be alone and the Holy Spirit is with me forever and ever. The Holy Spirit helps me when I need advice, protection, love, and instruction. It is my ORIGINAL FORCE!
I know people say that you learn from your mistakes and maybe you do, but I have found it not pleasant. I can say when I have not listened to the Holy Spirit and I received failure, it is humiliating and painful. When I think back on my life and I wish I would have been baptized in the Holy Spirit sooner. I found the Holy Spirit during one of my darkest times. God knew exactly what to do for me I just needed to listen.
1 Corinthians 12:8–10
8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,[a] and to still another the interpretation of tongues.[b]
