The whole world is facing a challenge, and in our private lives, we are all fighting challenges.

How are we going to connect to the Holy Spirt and how will we discern when He talks to us?

We might not know everything, but we know the One who knows all things. God holds our future!

We are compelled by the Holy Spirit! We are not going to sit any longer! We are not rolling over! We are taking righteous action for the cause of Christ!

We do not know all things. The one thing we do know is that we will stand before God and give an account, not for the lives we lived, but for the life we were called to live! We need an attitude of consecration!

We need to come to a place of consecration! Submit yourself to God's will for your life! Surrender to the cause of Jesus Christ! It's about the pursuit of something greater than your own survival and your own lifestyle.

You have to separate yourself from something, unto something else. Turn to Jesus Christ! Consecrate yourself to the Lord!

Pray "not my will, but your will be done, my Lord." God's plan is bigger! The centre of His plan is always for his Kingdom! For the greater good of mankind! Do not be controlled by your needs, wants and lifestyle!

You can move out of God's will and it can cost you your eternal reward. It can cost you your marriage, your life.

You have a future and a hope! You need to be committed to finishing strong!

Covid is an attack on the next generation! He is after our sons and daughters! Laws are being passed than no parent is in agreement with! People are dying without Jesus! People are broken!

The Holy Spirit never talks to your mind. He is with you and He is in you. He talks to you in and through your spirit.

Why do we not hear Him? Because we are being bombarded with news and worries!

There are things we know, even though we do not know because it is revealed to us by the Spirit.

God is not silent, the issue is we are not hearing Him because we are tuned in to the world and not tuned into Him. Be more focussed on the spiritual than the natural, then you will discern the Word of God.

We are all made up of three parts;

  1. Spirit
  2. Soul
  3. Body

How to connect and hear the Spirit of God, through an attitude of consecration;

  1. Spend time in prayer
  2. Feed your spirit man through the Word of God
  3. Sing Psalms and Hymns
  4. Worship with other believers

Remember, God leads primarily through;

  1. His Word
  2. Unction of the Holy Spirit
  3. Anointed 5-fold ministry gifts
  4. Visions and dreams
  5. Godly counsel

If you are serious about getting to know God and if you want to experience His divine guidance, then you have to come out of the world and you have to consecrate yourself to him. Draw closer to God! One foot in the world and one foot in the church won't cut it!

James 4 : 7 - 10 | The Passion Translation
Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.

We have to position ourselves in a place where our spirits and minds are uncluttered by the world, so we can discern His guiding presence. We have to turn from the world and turn to God!

God loves you and Jesus came because we all need a Saviour! God is not mad at you! He is madly in love with you! He cares for you and He died for you! If you would like Pastor At Boshoff to pray with you as you give your heart to Jesus, then click here.
