  1. 1. Even though I could remember talking to the Holy Spirit as a kid, when I was an adult andthought about talking to God, what came to my mind was: "Who are you to think that you cantalk to God?" But the truth 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. Soeven 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.http://hearingloss-hearingaids.com/hearing-aids/
  2. 2. There are lots of thoughts that arise just like that: "Talking to the Holy Spirit isimpossible Talking to the Holy Spirit is something that only very Holy peoplecan do Talking to the Holy Spirit is something that takes years and years ofdevotion and dedication " All of these thoughts are untrue and keep you fromconnecting with the Holy Spirit in your life When you begin to think abouttalking to God and hearing His Voice, become aware of what thoughts arise Ifyou become afraid at the thought of talking to God, that just means that athought has arisen within your mind that caused you to become fearful
  3. 3. A fear thought could be as simple as, "Ill never be able to hear the Holy Spirit" It could be a thought that says, "Im not worthy of talking to God God wouldnever talk to me " It could be, "Look at all the things that I have said and doneWhy would God bother with me?" Allow yourself to become aware of thethoughts that arise when you think about joining with God in the Holy Spirit indialogue
  4. 4. Do your best to notice those thoughts, emotions, or beliefs as lovingly andkindly as you can They are just thoughts that arise They are not the truthThey are not a reflection of you Theyre just thoughts that arise, these little fleabites that distract you for a moment
  5. 5. When you notice them for what they really are and respond to them with truth,love, and kindness, you are free to continue to focus on your connection withGod Lets say, for example, that you have the thought: "Who am I to think thatI can talk to God?" You can then remember: "Oh yeah, who am I NOT to? Itsmy job 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 have thethought: "Why would God want to talk to me?" You can respond, "BecauseGod created me and God only sees my perfection
  6. 6. http://hearingloss-hearingaids.com/hearing-aids/ God wants nothing morethan to talk with me through the Holy Spirit " "Im not worthy Ive done thesethings, said these things, or thought these things Im not worthy to talk toGod," and you remind yourself, "God just loves God wants to be incommunication with me
  7. 7. " Whatever thoughts arise, allow yourself to respond to them with Love andTruth You know the truth in your heart You know that God only loves you andwants to be in communication with you So when you have the thought: "Oh,Ive done these things or said these things God does not want to communicatewith me" you can remember, "Actually, God only loves me," and continue tomove past that thought or move on from that bug bite
  8. 8. Allow yourself to continue to move in the direction of connecting with God inthe Holy Spirit Its as if you are maneuvering your way around these littledistractions or obstacles, the little thoughts that arise, but you respond lovinglyto them and remain on the pathway to God There is nothing that can stop youfrom getting to God There is nothing that can keep you from your FatherEven if youre not sure how to respond with the truth to a thought that arises,just remind yourself, "Nothing can keep me from my Creator," and continue tomove along on that path
  9. 9. Since it is only a thought that can keep you from hearing Gods Voice, letyourself notice what thoughts have arisen in the past few minutes Make noteof the thoughts that sound familiar or the thoughts that have come to your mindand allow yourself in the next few days to continue to become more and moreaware of what thoughts come up when you think about talking with God in theHoly Spirit Really look at each thought and allow a truthful response to eachone to come to you so that you know no matter what thought arises, there isnothing that can keep you from having a relationship with God and GodsVoice in your life Focus on this in the next few days and find out how muchmore connected you feel to God in the Holy Spirit in doing so
