John 16:8 says” And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment
How many times have you sat in church and as the Pastor was given the word, you thought that the Pastor had read your letter to GOD? This has happen many times to me. God and I would have talked about a matter and I can go to church and my Pastor begins preaching on the very thing that God and I have discussed.
When it’s conviction it makes me very uncomfortable that I can hardly keep still in my seat. I am crossing my legs from right to left, I am even leaning over because it just too tight in that seat. It’s during that moment the Spirit is asking me “what are you going to do?” Through the course of that day I can still hear the Lord speaking to me. I have always believed that when God is speaking and asking me a question that I am to give Him an answer.
It’s not always easy taking correction from the Lord, but I rather take it from Him than anyone else. Why do I tell you this, because we all have found ourselves being convicted by the Spirit and at that very moment, we can either be obedient to the Spirit or we can ignore the Holy Spirit? The choice is yours? I want to be in His Divine Will not His Permissive Will.
I am sure that I am not the only person who squirms in their pew.
