The still small voice!

and after the fire a still small voice. 1 Kings 19:12b Are you guided by the Holy Spirit? Are you able to hear His still small voice on a consistent basis? What does it take to be in constant touch with the Holy Spirit? Can I hear clearly when in doubt, fear or unbelief? Remember God was upset with the wickedness on earth in Genesis 6:3 and said His Spirit – the Holy Spirit – will no longer strive, struggle or contest with man, that He will take His Spirit - the still small voice - away from man after man’s lifespan of 120 years. The coming of Jesus made things better, as He promised you and I that rivers of living, refreshing water of the Holy Spirit will flow through you as you believe in Him (John 7:37-39). As long as you are thirsty for God, you will be enriched by His Spirit to overflowing that will impact those around you and future generations positively. Furthermore, these rivers of blessing, increase, favour, anointing flowing from God through you will be forever, as long as you stay connected to the Spirit of God who speaks with a still small voice. Elijah saw the wind, earthquake and fire in action, but God was not in them. God was only in the still small voice…the voice that brings a solution when all else fails. I was working as a consultant at Mobil Oil at a time, and as a Chartered Accountant was expected to perform reconciliations of oil well costs. It was a challenging assignment until I cried to God and the Holy Spirit taught me step by step how to perform the reconciliations in a unique way that was easier and had not been used in that department before. Jesus stated that the Holy Spirit is a Teacher and Counsellor according to John 14:16 and 26. Ben Carson, a notable neuro-surgeon who has performed many intricate and complex surgeries, is a Christian and well known for speaking in tongues into the operating theatre, inviting the presence of the Holy Spirit which paves way for allowing the still small voice to speak and guide. Many notable inventions like the telephone by Alexander Graham Bell, Albert Einstein's guides on physics and sciences were from people who had connections to the Christian Faith. Michal Angelo also stated that he believes that his mastery in artistic works was to fulfil God’s purpose. The Holy Spirit is also a Counsellor, who gives you directions and way out of impossible situations as you are still – not wavering, not doubting – allowing Him to minister to you. He is also your advocate – your lawyer who can help you win any case. You will not be defenceless or without direction or confused when you listen to the still small voice. In John 14:18, Jesus promised that He would not leave us as orphans which means even if the whole world turns its back on you, God will protect, provide for you and deliver you like He did for Noah and his family. 16And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor (Comforter, Helper, Teacher, Advocate) to be with you forever. 18I will not leave you as orphans; I am coming to you. John 14 The Lord says there is someone here – you keep saying "I’m not going to make it" in a particular area of your life. God says I should tell you that you will make it, because He will help you. He says "I will help you, you will not fail" The scripture below is important for meditation, understanding and use in winning victories. You want to be rich, healed, delivered, hear clearly? Meditate on the following: 21Acquaint now yourself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come to you. 22Receive, I pray you, the law from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart. 23If you return to the Almighty, you shall be built up, you shall put away iniquity far from your tabernacles. 24Then shall you lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks. 25Yes, the Almighty shall be your defense, and you shall have plenty of silver. 26For then shall you have your delight in the Almighty, and shall lift up your face to God. 27You shall make your prayer to him, and he shall hear you, and you shall pay your vows. 28You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established to you: and the light shall shine on your ways. 29When men are cast down, then you shall say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person. 30He shall deliver the island of the innocent: and it is delivered by the pureness of your hands. Job 22 Travelling through the Muskoka region, I saw an interesting sign which read: "My husband wears my glasses to see the way I see things". We should also wear the glasses of the Holy Spirit to see things as God sees them according to Galatians 5:16 and 25, which enjoins us to ‘walk in the Spirit’ and 'live in the Spirit'. Last week we were mandated to pray concerning safe air travel by God’s leading. Within the week there were 2 incidents relating to: •Al Algerie flight •TransAsia Airways Flight GE 222 We thank God it was not worse. Notwithstanding we should continue to pray that: •An event similar to the missing MH 370 will not occur again from the pit of hell. • The mystery of ungodliness must be swallowed by the mystery of godliness (1 Timothy 3:16). Even if God does not give you things, love and serve Him – He has given you Jesus. •When He blesses you, follow Him in the Way, like the two blind men who received their sight in Matthew 20:34. See also Micah 6:8, 7:7-8 and 3:8. It is by the Holy Spirit that you can be raptured. See 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Philippians 3:20-21. Live in Him, obey Him, walk in Him, not in backbiting and factions or dissensions which leads to hell. If what you have been saying is displayed in front of everyone will you be glad or ashamed? Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8 The Holy Spirit will teach you, if you allow Him. Then what you do will be based on faith and there will not be sin because whatever is not of faith is sin (Romans 14:23). You will be bold and confident on the last day and not be ashamed to meet Him (1 John 2:27-28). My hope is to see you alive and well here and in the hereafter in heaven. Listen and obey the still small voice!  Prayer • Give thanks. • Saved? • Lord, I give my life over to you Holy Spirit, envelope my life in Jesus name. • Lord, guide and lead me like never before in Jesus name. • Father, the grace to obey your word and leading, give to me in Jesus name. • I will prevail over every opposition in Jesus name. • Every problem targeted at my future to make me weep, scatter to desolation in Jesus name. • Father, make haste to help me in Jesus name. • Lord, do not pass me by; attend speedily to my requests in Jesus name. • Personal prayer points.
