Have you heard His voice? Have you literally felt His touch? Pastor G and I sure hope so. We know Him this way and pray that we can help expand your knowing Him, too. We are preparing to hold a series of meetings about God the Holy Spirit once we are given the “all clear” in the wake of this corona virus plague and we are excited to share our experience and information with you.
Years ago, we asked God if we could know Him better, and He graciously honored our request. He first started with Pastor G literally hearing His voice and conversing with Him. We had been newly ordained as spiritual leaders, and Pastor G worked outside the ministry as an OTA (occupational therapy assistant). Things were tough in the field, and he had to travel an hour and a half each way to and from work. One day he came home to tell me that he and Jesus had talks while he was commuting. You can imagine my response. I looked at him like he was “losing it” and was from another planet. He kept sharing what they discussed, and I became convinced that what he said was really happening. Today, we both hear His voice and have truly meaningful spiritual talks.
Having left the fellowship we had belonged to for more than 20 years, we searched for a new church home. We attended various fellowships from Methodist to Pentecostal and discovered that each had much to teach us. We discovered our best “fit” was with the Pentecostals. We attended an Open Bible fellowship for quite a while. I looked forward to services and absorbing what God had for us. One Sunday morning, we were preparing to be seated when I felt a whole-hearted smooch on my left cheek. I looked around and saw no one standing on my left side and realized that kiss was from God the Holy Spirit. You know when teens interact with celebrities and say that they will never wash that hand (or whatever) again? That’s how I felt, knowing that He kissed me. Emotionally, I floated through the service, loving what had happened. As you can see, to this day, 20+ years later, I still remember.
Through the years, God literally told me what to do in various circumstances. The most recent one was a few weeks ago, when I heard the name of a woman in the neighborhood where we moved from a couple of years ago. Seems like she needed food, and God wanted us to bring it to her. Pastor George and I asked when to do this, and we heard “NOW!” So we went shopping for her and delivered the food. She had an urgent need. The visit also turned into an opportunity to witness to her, since she is not yet spiritually His.
Praise God for using us as His instruments! May He use you as well.
In His amazing love and service,
