Tonight my nine year old son, Jonathan asked me to write something on my blog. I was taking him back to his dad’s house and he asked me, “Mom, when God told you to the write the book, how did you hear God talk to you?” I had to immediately call on the Lord to help me explain this best to my son in a way he could understand.
I said, well, you know how Jesus died on the cross for our sins then He rose again after three days? He said yes. I told him Jesus stayed with His disciples for forty more days and then ascended into heaven to be with God the Father. But when He left this world He sent us His Holy Spirit so that He could be with all of us all the time. I said, the Holy Spirit talks to us and we can hear him if we listen.
I told him that I didn’t audibly hear the voice of God but heard Him like a soft whisper in my mind. That when I write these words of encouragement from the Lord, His Holy Spirit guides my thoughts. I told him that it’s like my mind becomes one with God at that time.
He said, “Okay, Mom, so you’re going to remember what I asked you and write about it on your blog tonight, right?” I told him I would so it must be that the Lord has someone He wants to share this with today.
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
