The Talking Spirit – II

In the first part of this article, I mentioned that God speaks to His children. A typical example is God’s conversations with Moses of old. God interacted with all the prophets in Bible times and He is still talking to all His servants and children today. I am amazed at how often God conversed with Moses as the Bible records in the book of Exodus. Each time Moses needed help, the Scripture reveals that he returned to the Lord (See Exodus 3; 5:22). We can learn from this that it is important to always go back to God to hear what He has to tell us concerning every situation in our lives. Sometimes, He decides to talk to us indirectly through someone or any other means. In her book, “How to Hear from God”, Joyce Meyer admonishes us to create an atmosphere to hear from God because He speaks through supernatural revelation (His Word, prophecy, wisdom, visions and dreams), natural things, internal peace and conviction.

It is important to always converse with God as He speaks every now and then, but sometimes He delays His response for reasons best known to Himself. God has invited His children to call unto Him and He will answer (See Jeremiah 33:3). As a leader in any sphere of endeavor, God can help you to overcome challenges the same way He helped Moses to lead the Israelis to the promised land. You can read this Sonnet I wrote on the importance of always returning to the Lord for more insight.

During Jesus’ ministry on earth, He had deep conversations with His Father – God. Sometimes, He withdrew from His followers and public to be alone in order to hear from God (See Mark 1:35; Luke 5:16). This really helped Him to stay focused and accomplish His God given assignment. While Jesus heard from His Father, He did not hesitate to speak to His followers because He is God’s Word (See John 1:14;14:10). Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven and we now have the Holy Spirit who is the Voice of God. The Holy Spirit hears from the God – the Father and speaks to Christian believers (See John 16:13). The Holy Spirit is available to teach us all that we need to know about God and how we can overcome life’s challenges. He is always willing to guide those who ask Him for direction and for decision making (See Isaiah 30:21; Psalm 25:9).

We can only have deep conversations with the Holy Spirit when we have a relationship with Him and conscious of His presence. To start and maintain a relationship with the Holy Spirit, you need to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. When you receive Jesus Christ into your heart, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in your spirit, soul and body and He begins to talk to you. Say this prayer of salvation: Lord Jesus, I accept that I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. Come into my heart. I receive You as my Lord and Savior; I believe that You came, died for me and rose again to save me. Conform me to Your likeness. I declare that I am born again. Amen!
