More and more kids are walking around with things stuck in their ears and cords coming out. it’s almost like they are little robots following their masters orders. It is scary, because whatever is going in is being recorded as orders in their brain’s subconscious. Is it music? What is the music teaching them? The constant stream of sound is becoming a staple in their thinking and thinking processes. Beware of this “new” habit. It truly can be a builder or a destroyer depending on what's coming out of those powerful little ear buds.
Think of the potential if our children were being given instructions in hearing God speak into their lives. Having the Holy Spirit’s indwelling Presence is so much more potent! He is God, Creator of the universe, and He cherishes us so much, He wants to be a treasured part of our life. Who could we become if we cooperate with Holy Spirit and allow Him to run our life? Instead of ear buds, we can open our ears to hear Holy Spirit’s voice urging us to go one way or another, teaching us truth about the world, and protecting us as we engage in life’s challenges.
It’s not as easy as ear buds plugged into a machine, but it is much more rewarding! And it is possible. Holy Spirit is here as a gift to guide our lives to a richer higher level of living on this earth. God did not leave us as orphans to make our own way in a bewildering world. Rather He sent us Jesus as our Savior and then when Jesus returned to heaven He sent Holy Spirit to be our own personal mentor for our earth journey.
John 16:7Amplified Bible (AMP)
However, I am telling you nothing but the truth when I say it is profitable
(good, expedient, advantageous) for you that I go away.
if I do not go away, the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate,
Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you
[into close fellowship with you]; but if I go away,
I will send Him to you [to be in close fellowship with you].
How I love to begin my day by having a visit with Him. I ask His protection over the day and His help in carrying Jesus’ love to all with whom I come in contact. The ideal is when people meet me, they meet Jesus. Holy Spirit within can help that happen. That is my goal.
So what is your goal [purpose] in life? With Holy Spirit, you can achieve any good aim. Hold Him in highest esteem; begin to know Him intimately learning how to hear His voice. Your life can be enriched by living in close fellowship with Holy Spirit.
Have you a relationship with God the Holy Spirit yet?
