One experience with Holy Spirit can radically shape and shift a life. How many times can you remember that He has done that to you?

One experience with Holy Spirit can radically shape and shift a life.

I remember how a friend of mine was worshiping in the Joplin’s International House of Prayer located in the old Dioko building. The owner let us use it rent free after the coffee shop went out of business. My friend was the only person on the worship team, that night, until a young lady came in the back door and sat down as Ed was worshiping. As she sat in the room, she began to cry. Ed thought he should stop and talk with her but Holy Spirit nudged him to keep worshiping. After a while, the young lady got up and left. Ed told me that he missed an opportunity to minister to her.

We have stories that need to be told. The telling of our stories will encourage others to let it happen to them.

Another night later, I forget how long it was, the same young lady showed up as Ed was all alone leading worship. That time, he stopped and talked with her.

She told him that first night she thought the coffee shop was still operating and she stopped for a cup of coffee. She found something intriguing about the music so she sat down and soon began to weep. That’s when she told Ed that she had been living an alternative lifestyle. Holy Spirit settled in on her and gently reminded her who she really was.

She left that first night unsure but later that night she rededicated her life to Christ. She had to stop back in to find Ed and say thank you for establishing an atmosphere where Holy Spirit could shift her path and shape her life.

I’m sure we have many incidents where Holy Spirit has overwhelmed us with His presence. He shifted our desires and shaped the next chapter of our lives.

The gifting and talents the Lord has placed in you, as worshipers, can set up the atmosphere for many such experiences with Holy Spirit.
