Hearing from the Holy Spirit
1 Samuel 16: 1-13
The Holy Spirit is God – the third person of the Trinity. At creation, the Spirit moved on the face of the deep. Genesis 1:2.
God spoke to Himself – Themselves: “let us make man in our own image.” Genesis 1:26.
After the conference of Father, Son and Spirit, God created humanity.
God intends to be present, permanent and part of our lives. In order to accomplish His purpose, He gave us His Spirit to live in our hearts.
In the above passage, the Holy Spirit led Samuel to make God’s choice of a King. Like Samuel we need to listen to God to help us make right choices – of spouse, job, business, career and any decision we need to make.
