Do you ever just know something in your spirit, by the spirit? That’s what happened to Elizabeth when Mary showed up on her doorstep in Judea. The Holy Spirit came upon Elizabeth.
At the sound of Mary’s greeting, Elizabeth’s child leaped within her, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
Elizabeth gave a glad cry and exclaimed to Mary, “God has blessed you above all women, and your child is blessed. Why am I so honored, that the mother of my Lord should visit me? When I heard your greeting, the baby in my womb jumped for joy. You are blessed because you believed that the Lord would do what he said.”(Luke 1:41-44, NLT)
Elizabeth hasn’t heard a word except a ‘Hi there, Elizabeth’ but the Spirit made everything known to her.
Do we trust the Holy Spirit when he speaks to us or do we doubt his presence?
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. (1 Thessalonians 5:18-20, KJV)
Prayer – Lord, help us follow through on this verse…for Christ. Amen
