Follow the Spirit


Stop. Breathe. Listen.

Acts 8:29

The Spirit said to Philip, “Go and join up with that chariot.”


When Philip joined the man in the chariot…he ended up being just the one who could make a difference in that man’s life.

It was not Philip’s plan that day.

This encounter was not on his radar until the moment he was prompted by the “Spirit.”

Are you open to the Spirit’s voice?

For this to happen…you first have to be listening and that takes practice.

First…are you paying attention to your inner-voice?

Secondly, are you taking time to nurture an “inner-life” through daily periods silence?

Thirdly, it also takes time to figure out if the voice you are hearing is actually just your ego’s voice speaking.

If the voice is asking you to do something that will be a channel of love, mercy, forgiveness or compassion…or if it is prompting you to take action in the name of justice…then perhaps it is the voice of the Holy Spirit.

The Spirit’s voice will never be harsh or demeaning. It will never be belittling nor will it have personal gain as an objective.

When we are attuned to the Spirit’s voice…we will feel an inner peace and the sense that we are fully alive.

We will experience a taste of the kingdom of God.
