This is the question: Do any of you feel from The Spirit, a need and desire to come closer ?? Is The Spirit moving in you ? Is He asking you to seek Him ?
What do you think you must do ? How could we get closer to Him, when He is in inside of us? Are you hungry for more ? And, are you counting the cost of this ?
Chris, yes, the Spirit is moving in me. He is bringing me closer to Him everyday. I am getting older and more in love with Him. He has brought me to my Savior. I am blessed resting in Him. Regardless of where I am in Scripture, He reveals Jesus to me. His Kingdom is becoming clearer and clearer. I see Him moving in great might across our world. Jesus is Lord and through His Spirit we can see Him moving in every part of our lives. He is bringing us closer and closer to Him. He is carrying me. I feel His arms of support all around me.
How we have been blessed. Jesus has come in splendor and majesty and the Spirit has made Him known to us.
You are such a Blessing. Even if we had never shared, even a thought before, your reply so clearly demonstrates The Spirit moving in you. With your humble and confident heart, you are able to say: " He is bringing me, He has brought me to my Savior, resting in Him, He reveals Jesus to me, I see Him moving, Jesus is Lord and through His Spirit we can see Him moving in every part of our lives. He is bringing us closer and closer to Him. He is carrying me. I feel His arms of support all around me., the Spirit has made Him known to us."
Void of this knowledge, how could faith operate? Only God can bring about growth. I was not sure why, I was lead to post these questions. I pray, in our obedience to His Will, and that Jesus is Glorified, those who read or hear this gain wisdom. He is the One Who calls His Body, He equips His Body. He gives us ears and eyes, not only to see and hear, but understanding. Yes, He feeds us, He also gives us hunger. In our weakness He is Strong. The list just continues.
We are Loved because, He is Love. We have hope because, He is Hope.
"He is carrying me. I feel His arms of support all around me."
As we use to say long ago, Brother I will see you here, there, or in the air.
With Love Your brother
I have felt the Holy Spirit in times of intense worship, but most of the time I just hear His voice. Usually I hear His voice like a thought in my mind. Twice I have heard His voice loudly when my life was in peril; once when my physical life was in peril and once when my very soul was in peril. As a worship leader, Holy Spirit taught me to listen constantly in order to choose the songs God wanted sung during Sunday worship. Our Pastor wouldn't tell me what he planned to preach on Sunday. He told me if I was listening to God I would know what songs to pick and they would compliment the message. Most of the time the songs did. Sometimes the songs were better than the message. Often, I had the songs picked out before the Pastor knew what he was preaching. The Holy Spirit also told me the songs needed to tell God's story; who He is, the wonderful works He has done, the salvation message of Jesus Christ, and how we as believers should respond. So many blessing were recieved, so many memories were made, and I grew as a believer. Unfortunately; the Pastor was very controlling and his messages turned to messages of hopelessness. A root of bitterness and hopelessness sprouted in my soul and the voice of the Holy Spirit faded. A deep dark depression took over and I quit my position as worship leader, I grew cold. Now, the Holy Spirit has led me to a healing church. I am being restored and hunger for the relationship I lost. I know God is faithful and the Holy Spirit is still with me, so I look forward to the future God has in store for me.
I would Love for the spirit to move in me better than that I would like to have a closer walk with God, every time I start trying to step out into the ways of God it seem as if I'm not doing or going any where in Christ.( Be praying for me). Your sister in Christ Mamie
