Being Aware of God

 
Transcript

Hi, I’m Shawn Bolz with Bolz Ministries.  Welcome to God Today.  I just wanted to share a story, real fast, about going to a coffee shop recently.  There was this girl there that I just noticed.  And I happened to notice her in a spiritual way.  Where I looked at her, and I was like, “God, you have thoughts about her, you have feelings about this girl that somehow I’m in touch with right now”.

The Bible says, in 1 Corinthians 2, that the Holy Spirit searches the deepest parts of God’s heart and the deepest parts of man’s heart and connects them together.  We actually get to know the mind of God, the thoughts of Christ for the world around us.  And I had one of those moments, just like some of you, might have read the Bible and life application came into your awareness.  I was looking at this girl and there were some life application words for her that were coming to my awareness.  Here’s the first one, I looked at her and I was like, “Hey, do you have a script that you threw in the trash?”  And she said, “What?”  And I said, “Get the script out of the trash.” And she looked at me like, “How do you know this? Who are you? What is this? What’s going on right now?”  And the whole place actually looked at us and was like, “How does this guy know this? What is this? Is this reality television, what are we doing right now?”  And I said, “Get this script out of the trash.  God gave this to you, He gave you this ability to write this script and He wants to publish the script with you.”  And she started getting tears in her eyes but also laughing.  And she said, “You have no idea.  This is my last coffee in Los Angeles, this is my last copy of the script, I deleted it off my computer, I was going to throw it in the trash and leave LA forever.”  I said, “So, apparently God thinks your script is good because He is telling me to share this with you.  Do you have a minute to talk?”

So, we sat down and we talked for awhile.  And there was this moment where she came into the awareness that God loved what was in her more than she even loved what was in her.  She wasn’t a believer, she didn’t know Jesus.  As I explained who Jesus was and that God first revealed himself as a Creator in the Bible, it changed everything for her.  She had been told God was one thing, but she had finally heard who God was from somebody who really knew Him and it made all the difference in the world for her.  

I want to encourage you to share whatever God is showing you in your heart.  Some of us go, “I don’t hear God”.  If you’re reading the Bible and getting any life application out of it, if you had an awakening to even watch this video, you’ve heard God.  Because there is no reason you’d want to grow without having something inside of you compelling you to grow, which is not yourself.  You’re not a self-made man or woman, you’re not a self-taught person, God is actually inspiring you and He is hungry for some things in you that are going to advance you.

I want to pray for you right now because I believe that God is going to do something where you become more aware of His voice than you ever have been before.  But also, that there is a place inside of your heart that you go, “Not only have I heard God and that I hear God, but I want to be made aware, so that people like this girl, who is about to throw away her script, they actually see God working in their life in and out”.  

Holy Spirit, come, I pray that you would show us when you’re here, when you’re around us; when you want to do something.  Let us be so sensitive to your love, aware of your love, and your presence in the world around us.  And I pray, God, that we would hear from you in ways that we never even thought we could.  God, the Old Testament, and the New Testament show all kinds of ways of how you spoke, would you do it again in our lifetime?  We pray that you would activate the Word of God in our life, through the power of prophecy, and the power of proclaiming your love to the world around us.  In Jesus’ name.

    • Thank you for this encouraging word….allowing the Holy Spirit to flow through us to touch other’s hearts and lives!! I remember one day…I heard the Holy Spirit say..give the red dress in your closet to a lady …I did not know her very well…and thought she might think it strange…but decided to walk out on a limb and obey….so I stopped by her home with the red dress …and told her I felt God wanted her to have this…with tears in her eyes…she said she had wanted a red dress for a banquet she was attending…and had looked all over the mall but could not find one….the dress I gave her was the exact style she wanted! Hearing…obedience…faith…blessing…..

  1. Good morning Brothers & Sisters! I love Sean’s story, it is beyond encouraging and exciting to see how God moves for the greater good in us. My lead from God wasn’t that specific, I was leaving a restaurant and told me to go back in to tell a waitress she was doing a fantastic job and that she was so loved by Him. I hesitated because I didn’t want her to think I was crazy but I didn’t want to disobey so I walked back in and shared Her word with her. She just looked at me in awe and said Wow, I really needed that today and I myself in awe said He does really really love us always remember that, and I let her get back to her work. I do need to keep my Kingdom senses more open and not be in such a hurry all the time. Be encouraged the harvest is ripe!!! Happy THANKSGIVING all!!

  2. Thank you for your encouraging Word. Yes, it has happened to me. It seems to happen mostly with waitresses ,salespeople or cashiers in stores. God gives me a Word of encouragement that starts my heart pounding and I have to give it. When I do, the response is mostly tears with a thank you. Doors have opened when the person revealed what was on their heart and that opened the door for the salvation message or prayer, right there. We hold hands and pray. Love it when God does that!
