Seven That Ways God Speaks to You:
The Inward Witness:
God, the Holy Spirit speaks through an inward witness!
Ro 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
Ro 9:1 I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,
Heb 10:15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
Luke 24:32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?
Act 5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.
Can I get a witness?
Now you know where that charismatic, pentecostal shout came from!
Ever heard someone say:’I don’t have a witness on that?”
These verses show that they are speaking Biblically accurately.
Someone tells them to do something, and deep down in their heart, there is a witness, that what they have been asked to do, is not the will of God for them.
It may have no natural reason for being wrong, but in their heart, there is a warning witness, that it is not something they should do. I have heard many testimonies of ministers that felt strongly not to get on certain planes while travelling, and cancelled their flights, to discover later that the plane crashed!
On the day the World Trade Center was destroyed, I have heard many, many stories of people that simply ‘felt’ they should not be there that day, that saved their lives. My sister was supposed to be filming in New York that day, but ‘felt’ she should reschedule so that she not miss her daughters first day of school, hence she was in Los Angeles that day, not New York!
While in business, there have been countless times I felt to walk away from certain contract negotiations, to later discover that the competitor who took the contract was not paid…God loves us, and will protect us from evil if we listen.
Works the other way too. You bump into a stranger, yet your heart bears witness that they are trustworthy, or that they are walking with God, and so, supernaturally naturally, you gravitate towards them, and strike up a conversation. God does good things through the relationship, all because you had a witness on it!
‘Holy Spirit, You are God in the earth. You always bear witness to truth, to the things of heaven. Lead me today, in all of my daily affairs, and help me to be sensitive to your promptings and leadings today. In Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen.
