Confident Hearing – Beloved Women – March 20, 2020

READ: “If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him” (Luke 11:13 ESV)

TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: One thing in life that causes me much apprehension is questioning whether I have heard from God.  It can stop me dead in my tracks.  It can bring out all kinds of bad habits like procrastination, wavering or just not doing the thing.  How many times have you been in the same situation?  I knew that I needed to address the issue of my heart and I wanted to share with you what God laid on my heart.  And yes! It was Him speaking.  

The Bible says, “If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him.” (Luke 11:13 ESV) God has given all His children the opportunity to receive guidance from Him. We have been promised the Holy Spirit to guide us. (John 16:13) Ask for guidance and believe in the promise. When we set up the barriers of wondering if God is speaking to us, we open the door for doubt and close the doors that give us the benefits of being an ambassador of Jesus Christ.  Anticipate with confidence that God will guide you.   

PRAY: My Father.  Thank You so much for offering the gift of the Holy Spirit.  Please help my heart to be tuned into what the Spirit reveals.  Forgive me for ever doubting your goodness of revelation.  In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

SHARE: Anticipate with confidence that God will guide you.   

REFLECT: What keeps you from believing that the Spirit of God has spoken to you?
