Listen to The Holy Spirit

  • Listen to The Holy Spirit

I recently came across this quote; attributed to the late Christopher Reeve;And that is my religion. I think we all have a little voice inside us that will guide us. It may be God, I don’t know. But I think that if we shut out all the noise and clutter from our lives and listen to that voice, it will tell us the right thing to do“.

  • Holy Spirit, or Your Conscience?

This comes really close to what I believe about the Holy Spirit.  I feel that He lives in the same little room in my head where my conscience lurks, and that when I surrendered my heart and mind to God and was baptized with the Holy Spirit, then that little voice that formerly was my conscience became the voice of the Holy Spirit.

  • Tune Out The World & Listen to The Holy Spirit

It is really hard to Listen to The Holy Spirit , and I have to, as Reeve says,  “shut out all the noise and clutter from my life and listen to that voice”.  In the Bible, it is referred to as, “the still small voice within”.  This is a really accurate description for me, and I know I have to try very hard to shut out the world and tune in to that voice.  It takes considerable will power to do this, for me the greatest difficulty is that I tend to drop off to sleep; but when I finally manage to switch off the world around me, it is in that precious moment when the world recedes that that wee small voice can be heard.

  • Not The Only Way

This is, of course, not the only way to hear the voice of God; but it is a good reliable method if you want to seek guidance or inspiration; or if you need to preach a sermon. God speaks to us in our own idiom, in the terms that we are familiar with, and that we can clearly understand.  Think about that for a minute: He will always make himself known in familiar terms, so there is no rationale for talking in old-fashioned language when we are praying.  Our God is the God of the here and now, and the Kingdom of Heaven is right here where we are.  Why therefore would you want to address Him, or He us, in King James style English from the  mid 1700′s? Expect to hear God in your normal everyday language when you Listen to The Holy Spirit.

  1. The holy ghost has influenced my life greatly, and it is the times when I am still and have my heart and mind on the things of god and christ that I can feel it most. The scriptures are amazing and they are a great place to feel the voice speaking truth.

  2. This is really innovative and a new idea, I like this concept and the way it is carried out in so light and cool manner. its really wonderful.

  3. I have heard of this quote elsewhere from “Superman” Steve Reeves and it always reminds of the Apostle Paul in Romans 1:20 “For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.” Thankfully, a merciful and loving God has placed in us and around evidence that bears witness to the existence of Himself and those that do seek Him are sure to find Him. The other side of the proverbial coin and a very sad one indeed is knowing that this very detail (that God does exist and has shown Himself) if not acted on allows God to declare us Guilty as He commanded men every to repent and no longer winks at those claiming ignorance.

    … That one certainly gave me food for thought. I’ve been munching on that one for about five minutes and I’m still munching.

    I’ve always thought of the conscience and the Holy Spirit being completely different simply because the conscience seems to be more akin to something that every man and woman is given from birth and the Holy Spirit is as much one with God as Christ is one with God. And married with the latter part of that thought is the fact that Holy Spirit is given to use by God when we repent, believe, and are baptized.

    Not trying to be contentious here, just writing down my mental mastication. What you have written and what I’m writing here may quite likely be a matter of semantics.

      You said; “that Holy Spirit is given to use by God when we repent, believe, and are baptized..” I suspect it is more a case of we are equipped from birth with this function, but it is not activated until we “repent, believe, etc”

    1. @Mable -

      Read the Word and Pray over what you read. If this is what God wants, then it will happen if you do this.
