How do we fix our attention on Jesus so that we hear His voice more clearly? I always mention hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit, but did you know to hear the Holy Spirit is to hear Jesus? Did you know that He will reveal things that are going to happen? You know it’s true, because we’ve all gotten a twinge telling us not to do something and we go ahead and do it, and the outcome was just what that twinge revealed. That’s Jesus! You might call it intuition, but maybe, intuition is just another name for Jesus. I’m going to be open with you today; I’ve prayed to have the desire for Jesus like Mary, who chose to sit at Jesus feet and hear all He had to say. I can picture her with adoring eyes, and an open heart as He poured out His love to all of those around Him. We can have that kind of relationship with Him today through the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, “but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.” We must fix our attention on Him! Yes, He will show up in a pinch, and give you a way out of sin, but to hear what He wants to reveal to us, we must set aside time for Him everyday.
When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. John 16:13
