Journaling Holy Spirit thoughts using the spontaneous thoughts, pictures, and stories during prayer and scripture mediation. I was reading the bible with hardly any reaction. What was I doing wrong? I forgot that the Holy Spirit has other ways to speak to me.
I read some of my journal entries from previous years. Encouragement and excitement filled my soul. I read the personal words, pictures and dreams that I had in the prior years. Yes, I will begin to journal again and I knew by the peace and presence of God that I needed to take hold of all on the Holy Spirit gifts and fruits by talking to the Holy Spirit and listening for His answers to me.
Our God is real and active in our spirit. I remember the first time journaling Holy Spirit thoughts became active and alive for me. I am recording my thoughts and prayers after reading the Word of God. One day, I recognized spontaneous thoughts from my spirit coming into my mind. At first, I believed these thoughts originated from my mind but the thoughts referred to me in the third person and Jesus in the first person. The thoughts were beautiful, Godly thoughts, I decide to record these thoughts in my journal as they come forth from my spirit.
I was skeptical to say the least. Alter my experience with channeling before I became a Christian, I am sure to test these thoughts carefully with the Scriptures. Not only were these thoughts confirmed by Bible scriptures but the thoughts tested out by scriptures that were not known to me at the time.
Writing Holy Spirit Thoughts Is Not Similar to Channeling
- This activity occurred during prayer, and meditation on the scripture or a time of praise and worship.
- I had total control of thoughts and could stop at any time.
- The thoughts were in the form of my inner voice and always comforted, instructed or convicted of sin. (correction not condemnation)
Are Spontaneous Thoughts a Type of Prophesy?
I continued writing and one day I was watching “Catch the Fire Ministries” on TV. Mark Virkler was on the program. Pastor Virkler is the leading expert on hearing the voice of God. Even though He is an ordained minister and Pastor- he struggles for many years of not hearing the voice of God.
Mark Virkler discusses journaling and describes exactly what I was doing-writing down what God speaks to me through my spirit. The study guide “Communication With God” very helpful in my journaling. Additionally, he explains how journaling is vitally important in a supernatural walk with the Lord.
Exercise Spiritual Senses from God
In conclusion, journaling is an entry into learning to exercise the spiritual senses God has given all born again Christian. Journaling beginners should compare their writings to scripture principles. If possible, have their writings evaluated by other mature Christians. Their verification will support your confidence that the writings are from God.
This website is dedicated to the process of journaling. For your review, I am writing my journal entries examples to demonstrate two- way communication. If you have any encouraging journal entries, please share them if you feel lead.
