Recently, I sowed some money into a ministry that helps the homeless. I told my husband that I felt led by God to do it and what if it was one of our family members that became homeless? Little did I know, shortly after that one of our children became homeless and he failed to call us. He panicked and needed help desperately. A ministry in a central Texas town took care of our son and encouraged him to call us. He is home now! I believed God took care of my son because I obeyed and sowed into this ministry.
I believe that you should follow the unction of the Holy Spirit. When I was a young mother, my highlight was to be able to go to the grocery store alone. I had my regular stores that I would go to, but one day I felt an unction or prompting to go to another store. (Earlier in my walk with the Lord, I would have probably not recognized it as an unction. But as I read the word and listened to godly men and women’s testimonies, I learned the Holy Spirit speaks to you.) I went to this store and I “ran” into a young lady that God had put on my heart. I was able to speak words of encouragement.
I have learned from experience that if you do not follow the prompting, no matter if it does not make sense to you; you will miss a divine appointment or face great disappointment. That is why I obeyed in giving to the ministry above. As you spend time fellowshipping with God, you will learn to recognize His promptings. Talk and listen to God… He is waiting for you!
John 16:13 (Amplified Bible)
But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth). For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him], and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future].
