Listen Closely

“However when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me for he will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.”~ John 16:13

Ever feel like you are just running in circles and never really achieving anything for the Kingdom of God. We all get caught up in the busyness of life and even church life at times without really knowing if what we are doing is making a difference. There is one thing we can be certain of. If we are listening, I mean really listening for God to speak to us through the Holy Spirit, we will hear Him guide us. It may come through the Word as we read, it may come through His gentle, wonderful still small voice or it may come from another brother or sister in Christ. Jesus promised us that the Holy Spirit would guide us and He has never taken a promise back yet.

If you are finding yourself spinning your spiritual wheels and not really sure you are moving in the direction God wants you to be, take the time you need to spend in the presence of God. Allow the Word to speak life and direction to you. When you pray don’t just ask but receive from God. Allow Him to speak to you.  Listen closely as you spend time with Him.

We can save ourselves so much time and heartache if we know what we are doing is the will of Him who called us. It may not always be easy to do but we know that if we are moving in obedience to what He is asking us to do, He will make a way to see it through!
