“But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.” Jude 1:20-21
Sometimes it takes courage to act. It is often hard to act on an idea or an impulse because we are afraid of what others might think.
With discernment we can learn to know which impulses are of God. When we become aware that the urgings within our heart are of God, we will know it is okay to act without fear of judgement. As we become in tune with God and His plan for our life, we embrace our journey with enthusiasm, eagerly awaiting the next impulse.
Learning to listen is the key; not only to our hearts but to the impulses of His Spirit. Being in tune with God’s plan is to form a partnership with Him. We consult Him before making decisions and we listen to what He has to say. His Holy Spirit is always ready and willing to speak to our heart, to guide us to what is ours to do.
In partnership with God we reap the profits from our ventures. We become healthy, whole, fulfilled, and joyful. “May the God of hope fill you with all the joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15″13) Realizing that our ideas, our impulses, are actually gifts from God, life can then be met with courage and anticipation.
Through the leading of the Holy Spirit, we are lead to our highest good. Therefore, every impulse from the Holy Spirit brings us another step closer as we are lead on a sacred journey growing ever closer to God, our Creator. In partnership with God and His Holy Spirit, we step forward in confidence to be creative and live our life with passion. We act on the good within us. We are linked to our highest good.
This is a beautiful prayer to the Holy Spirit: “Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in us the fire of your love. Send forth Your Spirit and we shall be created and you shall renew the face of the earth. O God, Who by the light of the Holy Spirit did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations.”
“So as the Holy Spirit says: Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.” Hebrews 3:7-8
