I have been seriously moved within my soul today. I can not explain it, other than God is trying to tell me something…I have had an indwelling of the holy spirit before in my life, and I really feel something coming this time. And remarkably enough, I am very calm. Or ready…not sure which. I found something I wrote down at some point, on a piece of paper in my bible. It’s a thing that Oswald Chambers said…
“Conviction of sin is one of the rarest things that ever strikes a man. It is the threshold of an understanding of God. Jesus Christ said that when the Holy Spirit came, he would convict of sin, and when the Holy Spirit rouses the conscience and brings him into the presence of God, it is not his relationship with men that bothers him, but his relationship with God.”
I know when I am under conviction…So I’m not exactly sure why this came to be and why I found this. I just prayed for guidence and strength. I am getting ready to have a meeting with someone, and maybe I need to be strong for something for them, or me, or God. I don’t know. But I do know in the past God has prepared me for things this way. One of my favorite things that I have to do is trust and obey. So I’m trusting right now. I don’t know the future. I’ll watch my walk and stay close to what I know right now.
