That’s a fair question but how many people can answer yes to it?
John 10:27 (KJV) 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
Jesus said that His sheep hear His voice so that means He’s talking to us. Why, then, do Christians say they don’t hear Him?
I believe God by the Holy Spirit is constantly speaking to us, Spirit to spirit, but we don’t always hear because we’re so distracted by what’s going on around us. We’re cluttered with the things of this world and they’re screaming so loudly that it drowns out the “still small voice” of the Holy Spirit.
Have you ever done something and it didn’t turn out the way you expected and then you thought I had a feeling that I shouldn’t do that? If you retrace your steps you’ll find that the Lord was speaking to you before you made that move.
The still small voice of the Holy Spirit is just that – still and small. You have to be tuned in to really hear what He’s saying. And that’s not where most people are – tuned in!
We live in perilous times as you can witness on every level. It behooves us to have an inside tract to what is going on and the only way to do that is to be tuned in to the Holy Spirit and what He’s saying. God’s Word is our guide and the Holy Spirit will never speak contrary to it.
As you know, the things of the world can really usurp our attention and get us focused on the wrong things instead of what God is saying. We have to get the Word inside us and continue to stand on it at every trun. Only then will we see the desired results we want. God has always made a way for us, in spite of what’ going on in the world, But, unfortunately, many Christians have just ignored His leading in favor of the worldly view.
Jesus cautions us to steer clear of the cares for this world so we won’t’ be caught off-guard in any situation.
Luke 21:34 (AMP) 34 But take heed to yourselves and be on your guard, lest your hearts be overburdened and depressed (weighed down) with the giddiness and headache and nausea of self-indulgence, drunkenness, and worldly worries and cares pertaining to [the business of] this life, and [lest] that day come upon you suddenly like a trap or a noose;
We have a job to do before Jesus returns and we need to be doing it. We have not yet seen the Last and Final Move of the Holy Spirit but I believe all signs indicate that it’s imminent. Praise the Lord of Glory! Are you ready?
