What Christ says to you in the dark, tell in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim from the housetops. Matthew 10:27

 ... Even at the risk of people thinking you are crazy when you tell them that God told you such and such. Ask anyone; would an all-knowing, wise friend who lives with you, never speak to you? Especially if he knew that he could make your life easier and help you to successfully accomplish your mission and his? Of course not, that silent person wouldn't be a friend and he wouldn't be wise either.

The Spirit of God who lives inside aspiring immortal hearts and minds is a talker. He is quick to guide and to advise. After all, He is 'the Wonderful Counselor' and He is published in the all-time Best Seller, the Bible.

This Mark gives us permission to kiss and tell.

Be alert for the Holy Spirit who lives in your heart. You know it is He who speaks when the message is clearly not something you would say, or if it is a brilliant solution to a concern. Christ in the form of the Holy Spirit is not you; He is Other. In times of confusion or distress you may need to ask Him to speak through the Scriptures; otherwise be alert for His whispers in the dark. Magnify Him.

Don't worry about those who think you're deluded, or even who think that the message is not as great as you do. That doesn't matter at all. What matters is your relationship with the Holy Inner Voice. Respect Him. Do whatever He tells you.

Don’t be shy; go look for your bullhorn!
