Has God hit me upside the head to move and I stood still?
Job 33:14 For God does speak—now one way, now another— though no one perceives it.
Luke 6:46 “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?
Matthew 7:24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
John 16:13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
Isaiah 30:21 Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
I know that there have been certain things that I’ve said “If God wants me to do that (whatever it is) then he is going to have to knock me down, kick me around and hit me upside the head.” But generally He does not work like that. Man it would be so much easier if he did. We must stay connected to HIM daily and pray to be FULLY ALERT to the callings of the Holy Spirit who dwells inside us. Most likely it’s going to be a gentle voice that’s talking to us from within. Sometimes He may even talk through other people. You have to be ware of this though because it’s not always the Spirit talking through others. The Holy Spirit will give us nudges, if we ignore them, he will nudge again. Eventually we can’t ignore them any longer but we can make a conscious decision not to move. Are we connected with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and do we move when He nudges?
Lord, help me to hear your voice guiding me. Amen
