LEARNING TO BE SPIRIT LED 6/03/09
Today I was thinking about some wisdom and counsel I had
shared with 2 people and realized at the time I had
spoken with assurance to the point I believed it was the
mind of the Lord. It was kind of like having the
experience of the Word of Knowledge that happens when
you are downloaded with His Spirit you just “know”
something without being specifically told. In the same
way, I felt I knew the Lord’s heart at the time but
later as I was thinking about it, I was only hoping it
was the Word of the Lord as I was not used to speaking
quite that boldly to people in regards to their personal
HEARD: I think I have the mind of the Lord.
MEMORY: When I heard the Lord’s above response
to my musings about this, it really comforted me. As he
brought into remembrance that Paul also said “I think I
have the Spirit of God” in his opinion on a matter.
1 Cor 7:40 NLT
But in my opinion it will be better for her if she
doesn't marry again, and I think I am giving you counsel
from God's Spirit when I say this.
1 Cor 7:40 NKJV
But she is happier if she remains as she is,
according to my judgment — and I think I also have the
Spirit of God.
1 Cor 7:25-26 NKJV
Now concerning virgins: I have no commandment from
the Lord; yet I give judgment as one whom the Lord in
His mercy has made trustworthy.
witness: There is a place in God when we
experience that the Holy Spirit is bearing witness with
our spirit. When these times take place, there is an
inner knowing that what we are speaking, thinking or
reading is God’s truth. It is very much like the
experience of having a download of the Word of
knowledge. I receive Words of knowledge through
pictures and maybe hearing sentences, but occasionally I
am just downloaded with a knowledge that applies to
God’s Word. This happens with sudden interpretations
that I know are accurate, or perhaps suddenly knowing
something about a scripture or a concept I didnt know
before. When the witness of the Holy Spirit is there to
quicken truth, there is a life that comes to our own
spirit. When we partner with this, it gives us a holy
boldness to release God’s Word.
Acts 4:31 NKJV
....and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit,
and they spoke the word of God with boldness.
Rom 8:14-17 NKJV
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these
are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit
of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of
adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father." 16 The
Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are
children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs — heirs
of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer
with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
WORD TO PONDER: LEARN TO SPEAK CONFIDENTLY UNDER MY
I want to bring you into greater confidence when
speaking My Word. I have heard your prayers that you
want to be led by My voice and spiritual gifts. Beloved
one, I will fill your mouth and teach you what you are
to say. Be willing to stretch your borders and release
what comes from My promptings and I will fill your
mouth. My gifts of wisdom and counsel come under
inspiration and you shall experience the assurance of
the witness of My Spirit at the time you share. Once
you speak My Word, resist doubt and stand that angels go
forth to help it prosper and bear fruit.
Ex 4:11-12 NKJV
So the LORD said to him,” Who has made man's mouth?
Or who makes the mute, the deaf, the seeing, or the
blind? Have not I, the LORD? Now therefore, go, and I
will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall
