Lord Jesus, I’m so glad I listened to the Holy Spirit.
I’m still so amazed at the way You fulfill me by letting me see in retrospect how You pour Your Grace over me and into me when I FINALLY GIVE UP MY WILL and truly ask You to tell me clearly what YOUR WILL for me is in a specific situation.
(For example, I determinedly do NOT want to do something. I am not going to…..I should so I will. I don’t want to——TURMOIL! Finally, I STOP and ASK the Holy Spirit in Jesus’ name to point blank tell me what He wants me to do. I LISTEN. He tells me immediately. In my heart and mind, I KNOW. NOW, I either choose to OBEY or I live my Will instead, even though I realize there will be consequences. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but eventually. Why? Because God the Father loves me so much, He will not neglect my growth in Him.)
(If I obey what I feel and hear through the Holy Spirit, amazing Joy, astonishing Awareness of His Power working through me presents itself. I know I didn’t care for, comfort, express, enlighten, enjoy, influence, or witness to that person or persons. It was the Power of the Holy Spirit as a direct result of My CHOICE to OBEY the Father’s Will instead of mine. Looking back, I am always amazed at how easy and wonderful He lets it all play out. Thank You so much, dear Lord, for continuing to teach me the way I should go.)
