Today I want to talk about listening to the Holy Spirit, instead of relying on someone else to tell you what He said you should do. We need to get to a place in our walk where we can discern what the Holy Spirit is tryi...

    One of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, testing him. 'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?' Jesus said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. A second likewise is...

The Little Seed

  • Hear, then, the parable of the farmer. When anyone hears the word of the Kingdom, and doesn't understand it, the evil one comes, and snatches away that which has been sown in his heart. Matthew 13:18 WEB

    Once while praying about something, I felt like I heard a small whisper back from the Lord, encouraging me to go ahead with what I was praying about. Then immediately afterwards came doubt, unbelief, and a feeling like 'That's not God, just your imagination.' So I prayed about it again and this scripture came to me very clearly.

    God's word starts as a little seed, but as you believe, it will grow into something beautiful. When the Lord speaks something to your heart, the enemy comes immediately to cast doubt, unbelief and confusion on you. It is an attempt to stop the positive effects that God intended. Rather than you stepping out into what God has for you, the enemy wants to kill your dream before it can take root, and before it gets started.

    God works in our lives with His word: 'He sends his word, and heals them, And delivers them from their graves' (Psalms 107:20). This includes the 'Logos' (written word) and the 'Rhema' (spoken word). When Jesus said: It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God' (Matthew 4:4), that is the Rhema word.

    God is not dead and He still speaks to us today if we will listen. Jesus said many times: 'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says' (Matthew 11:15, Mark 4:9, 4:23, Luke 8:8, 14:35, Revelation 2:7, 2:11, 2:17, 2:29, 3:6, 3:13, 3:22). Many are spiritually deaf, but don't let that stop you from listening.

    When you pray and get a positive response, believe, hang onto it, and step out in to what God has for you. If you fall, He is able to catch you. If afterwards you have feelings of doubt and fear, you can bet that the enemy is trying to thwart God's plan for you by holding you back. Do not let the enemy take away what God has in store for you through unbelief.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I choose to believe, help me overcome my unbelief. I want more of You in my life. I want to serve You with my whole heart and know you intimately. Please be a part of my life, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Thank you. I can relate to your text. Sometimes while praying I feel comforted and feel like God is telling med everything will be ok. Sometimes I even get "pictures" inside my head. For instance - I was praying for my daughter the other night and then I had a vision that she was inside "something" - it looked like she was in a whale's mouth. And then it came to me that she was safe just like Jonas was safe in the whale's stomach. Immediately after I thought - where did I get that crazy idea. It sure is difficut knowing if it's a word or my imagination.
