Do Not Stifle

Do not stifle the Holy Spirit.
~ 1 Thessalonians 5:19 [NLT]

What does the Holy Spirit feel like?  It’s an inner urge that can come gently or even forcefully to say words, connect people, or take action.  Usually the result of the prompting of the Holy Spirit brings healing, strength and joy, only good things.  It may not necessarily be clear to us in the moment how our words and actions bring healing.  By stifling the Holy Spirit, we don’t carry out the message we have received and stand in the way.  The next time you feel the inner gut feeling to follow through on something, embrace it and let the Holy Spirit work through you.
