It’s Time To Know

time to know

Shhhhhhhh.

Get really quiet. If not right now, sometime before you go to bed tonight. Again tomorrow.

What is the Holy Spirit speaking to your heart? What is stirring in you? Not the 20 things that go zooming through several times a day. Not the 10 things. The 1, 2 or 3 things that just kind of hang out 24/7 at different levels of consciousness. Sometimes, it/they are LOUD and CLEAR. Sometimes they are just whispering and on the periphery of your daily activities. But they are there. Always there.

Maybe you swat it away. Dismiss it. Or, override it every time it surfaces for your consideration. You don’t have time. You don’t have the energy. You don’t have the support. You don’t have the money. You’ve made too many mistakes. You don’t know how. All the usual reasons we have for why we don’t do what is in our hearts and live The Plan and our Destiny.

It’s not the To-Do list. It’s not the regret list. It’s not the if-only list. It’s not the what-will-please-everyone-else-and-get-them-off-my-back list. It isn’t the maybe-I’ll-be-enough-then list. It’s not the daydream or fantasy. It’s different than that. Deeper than that. It’s the thing that stirs when you see that picture, read that scripture, hear that message, watch the news, have a moment to ponder your life and purpose. That thing. Not stirred by emotions – good or bad. Not manipulated by expectations – yours or someone else’s. It’s deeper and different than that. Because it is a spirit thing. His Spirit to your spirit.

It’s time to drill down and hear distinctly from the Lord on it. Clarity. Details. Next steps. It’s time to KNOW. Really know. Drilling down requires focus. Purpose. Are you ready to listen and follow? Then, it’s time to step. Step by step. It’s time.

1 Corinthians 2:10-11 (NLT) says,

10 But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets. 11 No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. 12 And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.

The Holy Spirit is here to reveal ALL THINGS  to us. He’s here to show us the things to come – our future. That’s what Jesus promised in John 16:13.

When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on His own but will tell you what He has heard. He will tell you about the future. John 16:13 (NLT)

Knock…He’ll open the door. Ask…He’s giving. Seek…you will find. He said so.

You’re not alone.The Greater One is in you. He’s speaking…
