HEART STIRRINGS (1) – Acts 17:16
It is high time you started studying how the Spirit of the Lord moves in you and with you. Recall that man is a tripartite being, that is, essentially a spirit that has a soul and lives in a body.
The born-again person now has a spirit that was made alive by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The spirit of the born-again person has the capacity and ability to receive divine communication from the Spirit of the Lord and one of the ways that the Holy Spirit speaks to a Christian is through heart stirrings. A heart stirring is a divine move in your heart – an excitement, feeling all jumpy inside, a holy enthusiasm. If you will receive all that God has for you as a Christian, you must understand this type of Holy Spirit communication to your spirit. There is a stirring in your spirit that you must get, especially when you are to preach the gospel.
We don’t have to force ourselves. We should allow God to do the stirring and if there is a stirring, just follow it. Many times, we miss it and we step back when he stirs up our mind to share something. A man of God once shared a testimony that he dreamt that somebody went to hell and he wept; God told him that when he opened the door for him to share the gospel with the man, the man of God allowed fear to deny him. You may be the last chance that God has to get across to that person, when He moves on your heart, release the word.
PRAYER: Lord, I release myself to Your leadership, deepen my sensitivity, stir my heart, morning, noon and night till I do all Thy bidding in Jesus name. Amen.
