Hi Pastor John!
A new lesson from Jesus that I want to share.
Thursday evening I had been talking to Jesus about knowing his voice. Jesus has been so patient with me, teaching me how to listen to the spirit and just how to know his voice. Well I was thinking Thursday evening about something I heard you say when I was seeking the holy ghost. What you said was, “That any good thought comes from God and that we can not even have a good thought without God.”
This led to me asking Jesus “How do I know when my thought is from you?” Most of the time, I can feel when Jesus is talking to me. I just know it is my Jesus. The Lord has taught me to hear and know the still small voice and he has spoken so loudly to me that it shook me on the inside. Then sometimes there is just a thought that comes out of no where. So that is what I was talking to Jesus about that evening.
Here was how he answered me.
Friday I stopped at the gas station. Now I usually use one of two gas stations in town because I fill up so often. This is a gas station I use often. I got out of the car, started the pump and got back in the car while the gas pumped. I do this every time I get gas. As I sit in the car I had a thought. The thought was, “What if that pump doesn’t stop and runs over?” The thought struck me. I even argued against the thought because the pump always stops. I have never had it run over.
I wait maybe another minute or so, and get out to put the pump up, which has not stopped and I am now over $20. When I get out the gas is running over down the side of my car. It is a lot of gas too. I just stood there with my mouth open. I couldn’t believe it ran over. Then a very large burly man looks right at me, just as calm as can be and says, “That is an expensive lesson huh?” I couldn’t even speak. I was finally able to put my head down and humbly say, “Yes sir it is.”
You know that feeling when you can just feel Jesus looking at you and you can’t really say anything? I do. I experienced it Friday.
I was talking to Lou on Friday night and she said “Isn’t God good? You would not have had that thought, no reason to because it had never happened before.” I feel like Jesus is fine tuning my hearing!
