I Want Be So Close To Him That He Uses Me
Anonymous comments on the post, ‘Can You Tell Me More About The Holy Spirit?’
Please can you tell me how you get so close to Him that you can even sense when He is giving you a message for someone else? I know there is no formula, but maybe your experience can help me. I really want to know Him more. I know I have met Him, but I want more, to be so close to Him that He uses me like that or however He wants.
Sister the best way to get close to anyone is to spend time with them talking, hanging out, finding out what they like, what they donâ€™t like, and growing in love with that person. My closest friends are the ones that I have spent quality time with, talked with for hours, shared my heart with, prayed with, cried with, and grown to love like a sister from another mother.
I have found that it is like that with God too. The more time I spend getting to know Him in His Word and in prayer the more I realize how much He loves me, and I grow more and more in love with Him. His Word gives me direct for my life. Heâ€™s opened my eyes to see that He is always there encouraging me through His Word and through His people. I can run to Him anytime day or not and He hears my prayers. He showed me that He has all of my tears saved in a bottle. Not one has been lost. (1 John 4:19, Psalm 119:105, Jeremiah 29:13, Psalm 56:8)
As we grow in our relationship with His Word, the bible and in prayer. I believe we learn to recognize His voice or Spirit, speaking to and through our spirit. His Word will rise up in us and give us the wisdom to speak into otherâ€™s lives to help encourage, challenge, and edify or build them up. Look at what the apostle James said about the wisdom that God gives us from heaven. This verse helps us to know whether or not the wisdom or message that we have to speak into others livesâ€™ is from God.
James 3:17, â€śBut the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. â€ś
Sister I have a close relationship with Him because of all the time we have spent together. The women in this ministry speak words that our Lord has spoken to us in different seasons in our lives. We share the wisdom that we have gained through our trials, tests, and walk with God. You just keep spending time with Him sister. You will grow in wisdom, understanding, and love as you continue to spend time with Him and you will see how He will use you. Just be sure to keep an open heart and teachable spirit. He wants to use you because the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. (Luke 10:2)
