My friends, have you ever experienced a strong prompting to reach out to someone even when that person is not in your sphere of influence? And when you obey, you find out that the individual was at a cross road of life and your connection, whether emotionally, physically or spiritually was exactly what was needed? If your answer is Yes, then you are experiencing the risk it takes to listen to the Holy Spirit. An experience like this, gives a life of purpose.
I don’t know about you, I have not always listened to this prompting because of my focus on the voice of Fear – which is the greatest enemy to taking risks. In the process, I missed out on the opportunity to make a difference for the Kingdom of God.
The Bible reminds us that the steps of the righteous is ordered by the Lord (Psalm 37:23) and if we believe He indeed orders our steps by the power of His Holy Spirit, I encourage you to:
- Do your part and let God do His– this means, not limiting ourselves to the what if circumstances, situations and events.
- Listen to the voice of the One that made us– He already knows the beginning and the end of the situation. He knows there will be uncertainties along the way, but He also assures us that He will send the Holy Spirit, to teach and remind us of everything (John 14:26).
- Take Action – the Bible is full of risk takers like Peter, John and Paul. They took action and stepped out in faith from their comfort zones and God used them to accomplish great things for Him by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Christ follower, take the risk and allow yourself to experience the Holy Spirit and watch Him lead you into a life of purpose. If you are currently not a Christ follower, an amazing life awaits you in Christ – come.
All glory to God!
