When was the last time you saw the Holy Spirit at work in or around you? If it’s been a while, then it’s time to ask yourself, “Why?” Could it be that you’ve heard Him ask you to do something that carried with it the risk of looking foolish, so you decided to ignore His prompting and convinced yourself that it wasn’t God speaking to you? Could it be that your life is filled with so much activity that the voice of the Spirit can’t be heard above the din? Could it be that you’re harboring something in your heart that you’ve been unwilling to yield to the lordship of Christ, so you’ve been avoiding His presence in order to sidestep dealing with it?
If we want to see the Spirit working in us and through us, we have to trust and obey. Listen to what He is saying to you and then show that you trust Him by walking in obedience. We can trust Him to work in our lives for our good…even if it frightens us. Let Him have His way and you won’t regret it in the long run.
