I woke up last night picturing a bat with big ears. Bats respond to vibrations much like we are to respond to the vibrations from the Holy Spirit. They’re in the realm of the unseen but we all have them.
I was very inspired by Adrienne’s response to my last post. She said: “God is ever present. Being mindful of this by actively listening for Him, is the key to walking by the spirit. Even minor changes in schedule—that show of humility—keeps our connection with God strong. We may never see the results of our obedience; like the car accident that doesn’t happen because of your obedience to be elsewhere. You may wonder how to tell if you are on the right track. The only way is to play it through and see what you get. Rejoice in the victories and when it doesn’t go so well, ask God how to do better.”
Those times when you “just feel like” you should wear a certain shirt, talk to a certain person, show up at different time—these nudges happen to all of us, all the time.
I think of soldiers, firefighters, undercover agents, 911 operators; they are trained to listen to their hunches and respond quickly. People’s lives depend on it.
God gives us Holy Hunches. He can’t make us listen and can’t force us to obey. We train ourselves on this one. “The only way is to play it through and see what you get. Rejoice in the victories and when it doesn’t go so well, ask God how to do better.”
In Luke 11:11 Jesus says if a child asks his father for bread, the father won’t give him a stone. When we’re asking for a more spiritual walk, He’s not going to give us a stone to trip over, but rather bread to nourish us and make us stronger disciples.
