Stirred into Action by the Spirit

18 08 2012

Last time we looked at Zechariah 4:6 and so today we continue our study of moving in the Spirit as we look at Acts 17:16-17.


“While Paul was waiting in Athens, he was upset to see all the idols in the city.   He went to the Jewish meeting place to speak to the Jews and to anyone who worshiped with them. Day after day he also spoke to everyone he met in the market.”


We can be stirred into action, by our bodies, such as having to go to the bathroom, we can be stirred into action by our souls, as with a baby’s cry and so too our spirits can be stirred to action, by the Holy Spirit! 


Paul was upset to see all the idols in the city, it was his spirit which was stirred into action causing him day after day to go into the marketplace speaking to everyone he met. It is the Holy Spirit which sustains us as we are stirred into action.


When the Holy Spirit stirs us to act amazing things can and do happen. I remember while in college I was stirred into action and after prayerful preparation, I went to the Vice President of our college and ask him if we could begin forming a student council. By the end of the year the student council was elected and in the years to come they did amazing things for the college!


When the Holy Spirit stirs you act, pray and move forward!

I have been learning a lot about the Spirit lately. He’s like a wind that blows you here and there, stirring in you and asking that you do this or that for him, but he’s also a person with feelings and grieved by sin. Thanks for the post!
