With a new class that I am taking in my Masters of Divinity Program, I had to learn about the leadings of the Spirit. I’ve been trying to do that more often and it’s amazing how many people I have blessed just in the last few weeks. Don’t get me wrong, I have not obeyed all of the Spirit leadings but I’m praying to be more sensitive and obedient to what The Spirit leads me to do to bless as many people as I can.
Speak what the Spirit bring up to your heart to speak
A Couple of weeks ago while preaching at a church, I was praying for the people who came forward. The Spirit of God began to put words in my heart to tell them specifically as I prayed for them. To one of the ladies I prayed for, The Spirit led me to tell her that she had the gift of intercession prayer for others therefore to not give up for those people she was praying for. I had never met that lady before therefore I didn’t know anything about her life. Obeying a lead of the Spirit of God is risky but since I believe I’m indwelled by the Spirit of God, I have begun to obey those leadings. A couple of days ago, that lady met with me and she asked me what intercession prayer meant. I told her that intercessory prayer meant that she constantly prays for others. She smiled and said, yes! I love to pray for people and believe that God listens to me. She went on to tell me that she was praying for another person and that God had granted her request!
If you are a child of God through faith in Jesus Christ, the Bible clearly teaches that the Spirit of God lives in you continually.
Romans 5:5 say, “God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”
Romans 8:9 say, “You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you.” (Also see Romans 8:10, 11).
Because of the Spirit living in us, the Bible says that the Spirit leads us to speak for God, serve others for God and even pray to God in the Spirit for others (See Romans 8:26). I pray that as you live your life in Christ, that when you get a thought out of nowhere, that you take your time to see if the Spirit is bringing it up so that you can be a blessing to others.
Pray what the Spirit brings up to your heart to pray
About a month ago, the name of one of my best friend’s wife came to mind. I didn’t have her number but I called my friend and asked if it was ok for me to pray for her. He told me that it was all God because she had had a tough week. A couple of weeks ago, the Lord put in my heart to pray for this friend of mine and after I did, I texted him. The reply I got from him was that he was in big need of knowing that someone was praying for him.
I can share more stories about Spirit led moments but I also can tell you of moments where I didn’t do anything about it (help someone who broke down in the freeway, tell the teller at the bank that God loved her). Every time the Spirit leads us to do something it’s because God wants to bless somebody!
Let’s bless a whole bunch of people with what the Spirit leads us to say, do and pray.
