Have you ever thought back to the time when you were first saved and you wanted to save others. You wanted to give them what you found and for them to share it with others. Do you remember how forceful you were about this and how hurt you were when they would no listen to the “Good News!!! Oh those were the days!! We look back and laugh at how immature we were as baby Christians and now we look at how we have matured but still have more to learn.
How do you approach people now? What do you say when people curse the lord? Does the Holy Spirit quicken you and give you the answer? He does me give you the answer if your ever so still and spend time in his presence so that you know his voice when he gives you just the right words. The father is and will always be a gentlemen. He will not force anyone to accept his word. You must accept it freely. It is a choice not a right. Don’t get so wrapped up in the world that you forget to listen for his voice and allow yourself to hear your own.
Sometimes people will ask you if the voice you hear is your inner voice telling you what is right. I say, “Knowing the father is more than an inner voice. It is a peace beyond comprehension and reason.For me it’s just the father is speaking and be still.”
New King James Version (NKJV)
10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
