This morning the Holy Spirit wants to speak to our lives. The Word continually teaches us that He desires to have an intimate and close communion with us. It is in this intimate communion that He will reveal his plans and purposes for our lives. We see that Scripture shows us this statement time after time, he who has an ear, let him hear! John 14:26 tells us, “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” We understand that every man has a Natural ear, but only he who has his ear in tune with the Holy Spirit, may hear and be taught by him.
Today it is necessary for us to have our ears sensitive to His voice. In Hebrews 3: 7-8 He tells us, “Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says:“ Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, In the day of trial in the wilderness.” Today we cannot be deaf or indifferent to his voice, he desires to do a great work in us if we only spend some time alone with Him. It is in these moments that the Holy Spirit will speak to us through the Word, and we will come out greatly ministered and blessed!
On this day I personally believe there must be an urgency to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. We cannot be satisfied with the condition of our spiritual life. It is necessary to seek the direction of God for our life. To be able to know His plans and purpose for us. In Ephesians 5:17 it tells us, “Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” There is no reason to be confused or without a clear understanding of what the Holy Spirit wants to do in our lives and congregation. Let us search passionately for his presence and he will reveal to us the great things that are to come.
