Thank God for the Holy Spirit and His leadings and promptings. I’ll type it again … thank God for the Holy Spirit and His leadings and promptings. I could and perhaps should type that sentence over and over again because it is so, so true.
Here is why I am sharing that statement. A couple of Saturdays ago, my wife Vickie went out of town for the day leaving me all alone to enjoy a “me” day. Soon after she left, I started watching Jimmy Stewart’s Strategic Air Command movie but didn’t make it too far into the movie. That in itself is very unusual. First, I love Jimmy Stewart and second, I haven’t found too many his movies that I don’t absolutely love and will watch over and over again. For some “strange” reason that Saturday, I just couldn’t watch the movie. As soon as I turned off the television, I felt an urge to call a friend that lived hundreds of miles away from me, a friend that I haven’t seen or spoken to in probably 5 or 6 years. I tried pushing aside the urge but couldn’t shake what I sensed in my spirit. Within just a few short minutes of initiating the phone conversation, I knew exactly why the Holy Spirit had prompted me to make the call. During the phone call, Holy Spirit-inspired words began to pour out of my spirit, words that my friend told me at the end of the conversation were confirming words that they had already heard from God but needed to hear again. Before making that phone call, I had no idea of what was going on in their life. But, the Holy Spirit did and He allowed me to work together with Him to be a blessing to a dear friend. It was truly supernatural. Thank God for the Holy Spirit and His leadings and promptings. After that I call, I sensed in my spirit that I needed to call another friend that too lived several hundred miles away from me, again a friend that I hadn’t seen or spoken to in several years. You guessed it. The Holy Spirit did it again. He began to give me words that were God-breathed words for my friend, supernatural insight on matters that I had no previous knowledge. Thank God for the Holy Spirit and His leadings and promptings. This happened phone call after phone call throughout the remainder of the day. I simply obeyed the urgings of the Spirit and followed His promptings as to what to say or not say. Each and every call was God ordained. One more time … thank God for the Holy Spirit and His leadings and promptings.
Please believe me when I say that I didn’t share these stories to make me appear to be a ready-for-Christian-television super star. I’m simply wanting you to see that the Holy Spirit is still in the leading, guiding, prompting, urging business. He hasn’t changed one iota since the days when He was leading Jesus (Luke 4:1). And, if we will follow Jesus’ example of working together with the Holy Spirit, we too will have the same supernatural results.
One final time … thank God for the Holy Spirit and His leadings and promptings.
