We need to ask the question, Holy Spirit, what are you saying, what are you doing. All the time, this is intimacy. We want to be asking between 3 and 5 times a day. Quieten ourselves on this inside…we’ll hear. This will take discipline. We’re self-absorbed…we must slow that storm down to hear the still small voice. To slow ourselves down to hear the Lord is a pain, we don’t want to do it. That’s why he has to tell us to desire spiritual gifts in the context of 1 Cor 14…its about taking the time to love the Lord. To cultivate that relationship of intimacy.
When is the last time you asked the Holy Spirit 5 times in day what he is saying or doing? We need to have a lifesyle that asks that question.
Ask your local officers that, ask you officers, ask your fellow bandsmen, ask you your young people, ask youself.
