Even-Though-I-Could-Remember-Talking-To-The-Holy-S20

  1. 1. Even though I could remember talking tothe Holy Spirit as a kid, when I was an adult and thought about talking to God, what came to my mind was: "Who are you to think that you can talk to God?" But thetruth is, who am I not to? Who are YOU not to? When we think, "Who am I to talk to God?" we deny ourselves a relationship with God and the Holy Spirit. So even though the thought might arise, "who am I to think that I can talk to the Holy Spirit?" it is important to remember that it is just a thought. Its just something that arises within your mind when you entertain the thought of connecting with Gods Voice.hearing aid
  2. 2. There are lots of thoughts that arise just like that: "Talking to the HolySpirit is impossible Talking to the Holy Spirit is something that only veryHoly people can do Talking to the Holy hearing aid Spirit is somethingthat takes years and years of devotion and dedication " All of thesethoughts are untrue and keep you from connecting with the Holy Spirit inyour life When you begin to think about talking to God and hearing HisVoice, become aware of what thoughts arise If you become afraid at thethought of talking to God, that just means that a thought has arisen withinyour mind that caused you to become fearful A fear thought could be assimple as, "Ill never be able to hear the Holy Spirit
  3. 3. " It could be a thought that says, "Im not worthy of talking to God Godwould never talk to me " It could be, "Look at all the things that I havesaid and done Why would God bother with me?" Allow yourself tobecome aware of the thoughts that arise when you think about joiningwith God in the Holy Spirit in dialogue Do your best to notice thosethoughts, emotions, or beliefs as lovingly and kindly as you can They arejust thoughts that arise They are not the truth
  4. 4. They are not a reflection of you Theyre just thoughts that arise, theselittle flea bites that distract you for a moment When you notice them forwhat they really are and respond to them with truth, love, and kindness,you are free to continue to focus on your connection with God Lets say,for example, that you have the thought: "Who am I to think that I can talkto God?" You can then remember: "Oh yeah, who am I NOT to? Its myjob to be connected with God in the Holy Spirit Thats my job Thats allGod and the Holy Spirit would ask of me Who am I not to?" Or you havethe thought: "Why would God want to talk to me?" You can respond,"Because God created me and God only sees my perfection
  5. 5. God wants nothing more than to talk with me through the Holy Spirit ""Im not worthy Ive done these things, said these things, or thoughtthese things Im not worthy to talk to God," and you remind yourself,"God just loves God wants to be in communication with me " Whateverthoughts arise, allow yourself to respond to them with Love and TruthYou know the truth in your heart
  6. 6. You know that God only loves you and wants to be in communicationwith you So when you have the thought: "Oh, Ive done these things orsaid these things God does not want to communicate with me" you canremember, "Actually, God only loves me," and continue to move past thatthought or move on from that bug bite Allow yourself to continue to movein the direction of connecting with God in the Holy Spirit Its as if you aremaneuvering your way around these little distractions or obstacles, thelittle thoughts that arise, but you respond lovingly to them and remain onthe pathway to God There is nothing that can stop you from getting toGod There is nothing that can keep you from your Father
  7. 7. Even if youre not sure how to respond with the truth to a thought thatarises, just remind yourself, "Nothing can keep me from my Creator," andcontinue to move along on that path Since it is only a thought that cankeep you from hearing Gods Voice, let yourself notice what thoughtshave arisen in the past few minutes Make note of the thoughts thatsound familiar or the thoughts that have come to your mind and allowyourself in the next few days to continue to become more and moreaware of what thoughts come up when you think about talking with Godin the Holy Spirit Really look at each thought and allow a truthfulresponse to each one to come to you so that you know no matter whatthought arises, there is nothing that can keep you from having arelationship with God and Gods Voice in your life Focus on this in thenext few days and find out how much more connected you feel to God inthe Holy Spirit in doing so
