“The king summoned Nathan the prophet. “Look,” David said, “I am living in a beautiful cedar palace, but the Ark of God is out there in a tent!” Nathan replied to the king, “Go ahead and do whatever you have in mind, for the LORD is with you.” But that same night the LORD said to Nathan,” - 2 Samuel 7:2-4
Here’s a good lesson for today! Notice that David, a man after gods own heart, had a spiritual leader that he listened to… But God said something different than the Leader did!
Here’s the simple starting point for your week: sure, it’s great to have spiritual people that you draw inspiration and advice from. However, it is never a substitute for you hearing gods voice for yourself! It’s absolutely right to check with others to make sure that you’re not getting adrift – sure. But just as real, is the fact that the Holy Spirit speaks to you.
Trust God today! Listen for his voice! Well-meaning people may share what makes sense to them… good advice isn’t always God advice! You are his, and you know his voice, (Jesus said so in John 10) so listen to Him today!
what is "spark"?
Its a small thing - like the flash on a spark plug that hopefully ignites something bigger to propel you forward.
