KEEP LISTENING - Max Lucado
The last several posts I've put on the blog are following Max's book on the Holy Spirit, Help Is Here. I have not posted all his daily devotionals but you can receive them by going to his website: Read more Help Is Here
Today's devotional: "The phrase “led by the Spirit of God” is such a happy one. The Spirit gently leads us as a shepherd would lead a flock. He is more committed to leading us than we are to following him. So relax! And if you don’t sense his guidance, ask again." (Bold emphasis is mine)
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5 NKJV). He is completely capable to lead you where he wants you to go. He might use a nudge, a prick of the conscience, a reminder of Scripture. The Spirit first speaks through the verse. He may complement the verse with a voice. Go first to the verse. His will never contradicts his Word. When you open your Bible, God opens his mouth. The verse and the voice. God is calling. Keep listening."
I've always been independent although I did pray. Looking back, I wished I had turned a ear to the Spirit more often. Growing older has tuned my ear for keen listening.
