Following The Holy Spirit To Where You Don’t Want To Go

Steve Simms writes:

The past 4 1/2 years I have been privileged to meet on Sundays with a group of courageous people who are willing to be led where they don’t want to go.  They wait on the Lord and then (according to 1 Corinthians 14:26) do what He says, even if it makes them feel uncomfortable.  They pray out loud, even if they don’t want to.  They weep, even when it is embarrassing.  They speak out and share God-given wisdom with the group, even when they are scared.  They share testimonies when they feel timid.  They openly confess sin when they really want to keep it hidden.  They lovingly embrace people who they may not find appealing.

It is truly amazing what happens when people put obedience to the Spirit above their personal preferences and comfort zone.  God shows up with tangible power!
