I don't think I really started to hear from the Holy Spirit until I was broken. Once I let go of the strongholds I controlled in my life thinking "I" was in total control then He stepped in and started to guide me through His Spirit and His word. "In our weakness He is strong".

Mima, I for one believe also the Spirit speaks to us. I believe when He speaks to us it is for a purpose. I don't understand why the Spirit would give you information that serves no purpose. It is the kind of information that psychics receive. Just knowledge with no purpose or mission behind it. When the Holy Spirit speaks to us it is for boosting and for helping out others, not for giving us extra information. I'm worried about you and I'll pray for you.

Total shock: I knew that the Holy Spirit was dwelling within me because the word of God says so, but had no idea that the Holy Spirit would actually speak to my mind. Just last night walking down the street I saw a Lincoln navigator SUV. As my eyes fell on the car the Holy Spirit said," this car was bought with illegal drug money". I receive this kind of information often and I find it amazing.

I first noticed HS coming over me as a preteen. At home with mom & dad, I started talking about something profound, and noticed them staring intently at me. I have no idea what I said, but I know it was from Him.

Likewise in pastorate, I gave sermons sometimes not knowing what I was saying, despite a script. One was so upset, had to get a cig in his car before returning to church.

In counseling, He told me many true (hidden) things that helped people be set free, through the blood of Jesus.

Emcee, you asked, "why not as a child were you being abused? "
Can I ask you a question now? "Why not EVERY child that's being abused?" Meaning why doesn't the Holy Spirit speak to EVERY child while being abused? Why does he allow us to go through it. I don't know the answer to that, can you please seek the Lord diligently and let us know what He tells you? Thank you, I would like to know the answer to that. I'm appreciative for what He did for me.

Emcee, I appreciate your gentleness. You need to ask the HS that question. I have no idea why the Holy Spirit waited to tell me that. Except to say, as soon as I got saved, HE began to speak that scripture to me. Remember, I didn't die from the beatings and I'm sure it hurt Father God to watch. As soon as I got saved, that's when the HS began to speak beautiful things to me. Another one was, "I have loved you with an everlasting love." I definitely needed to hear that too! God Bless you.

Donna ::Without trying to be trite, why did the H/S wait for so long,before He came to your rescue? why not as a child were you being abused? cause I take it your Dad strapped you for no reason. I am sure being the H/S He knew He was going to intervene.
---Emcee on 9/21/06

Mima ... Did you recieve confirmation that the car was purchased with drug money? How did you know it was the Holy Spirit telling you, and not some other thought coming into your head?
I'm really interested in that ... is there something that identifies to you which thoughts come from the HS?

Strange as it sounds I am perfectly at ease with being wrong, because I Relies it was me that was wrong not the spirit. After asking God for a burden for lost souls, he did that very thing. But he didn't stop there. He gave discernment, words of knowledge, and financial blessings. As wild and silly as this may sound to most people it is true. And I want to take this opportunity to publicly thank the Lord Jesus Christ for what he has done for us.

Helen-here are my ideas. 1 I believe that the Spirit is trying to talk to all of us all the time. But we are not on the alert, not listening, not trying to rub shoulders with the Holy Spirit.2 It has more to do with our desires than our worthiness. For many years my wife laughed at me, said I sure thought I was smart. Today, after seeing many many things come true she says, what ever you want to do I'm willing to help. I am not always correct.

I will never forget the first thing the Holy Spirit spoke to me over and over, each and every day until I believed it. "Donna, I am gentle and humble in heart." See, I saw God as a hard taskmasker because my earthly father beat me with a black strap when I was little, so I had no idea of God's love for me. Jesus knew He needed to love me back to life and He did it through the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen, thank you Father God, Jesus and Holy Spirit for loving me.
---Donna9759 on 9/21/06

Mima - Why do you think that maybe God tells you things like that? Just curious.
