Part 8: Promptings of the Holy Spirit

(This is part 8 of 10 parts in this class)


What if your inner witness is that you're not in God's plan? Then you look to the Holy Spirit to bear you on to where His peace rules you are in it. What you'll get is His prompting. The Holy Spirit will prompt you. He'll prompt you to act, to speak, to move, to do whatever is necessary to get you in motion. Once you're in motion He can pick you up from where you are and bear you forward to where you should be.


So now we serve not under (obedience to) the old code of written regulations, but (under obedience to the promptings) of the Spirit in newness (of life).

Romans 7:6 - Amplified Bible


The promptings of the Holy Spirit - like the inner witness of the Holy Spirit - come from within and they require the believer to be sensitive. You can't be noisy and rough in character, conduct or attitude if you want to be prompted by God's Spirit. God spoke through David saying,

Be still, and know that I am God.

Psalm 46:10 - NKJV


The Holy Spirit is a gentleman. He does not force Himself on a believer nor does He insist a believer follow His prescribed course of action. On the contrary, the Holy Spirit prompts us towards a particular course of action and it is then up to us whether we respond to that prompting or not.
