Ask The Spirit

Frequently, when I am asked for an opinion by someone who is making a decision, I don’t sense that I have been given the answer. I may still try to sense what is wisdom, but I don’t want to offer an answer that is not clearly from the Spirit without warning. My advice, when I don’t sense I have any answer at all, is “Ask the Spirit.”

Examine these two Scriptures:
The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will explain everything to us.” “I am He,” Jesus told her, “the One speaking to you.” Just then His disciples arrived, and they were amazed that He was talking with a woman. Yet no one said, “What do You want?” or “Why are You talking with her?”
(John 4:25-27 Holman Christian Standard Bible® ©)
For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day. But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.
(Mark 9:31-32 KJV)

His trainees were afraid to ask Him questions. Never be afraid to ask Him for explanation, or for deeper understanding, or for strength, or wisdom, or faith, or anything else. It is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom. He wants you to succeed. He wants you to understand. He wants you to ask and seek and knock, so that all things become yours.

He is not afraid you will mishear and get it wrong. Even on the days when that is exactly what happens. Part of the process of learning to hear His voice is to also learn what His voice doesn’t sound like. Don’t be afraid to fail.
