Be gentle to the Holy Spirit

Numbers 20:8 - Speak ye unto the rock

The Holy Spirit is very sensitive, as love always is. You can conquer a wild beast by blows and chains, but you cannot conquer a woman's heart that way, or win the love of a sensitive nature; that must be wooed by the delicate touches of trust and affection. So also the Holy Spirit has to be taken by a faith as delicate and sensitive as the gentle heart with whom it is coming in touch. One thought of unbelief, one expression of impatient distrust or fear can instantly disturb His operations. Speak to the Rock do not strike it. Believe in the Holy Spirit and treat Him with the most tender confidence and unwavering trust, and He will meet you with instant response and confidence. Have you come to the rock in Kadesh? (Numbers 20:1-8). 'Kadesh' in Hebrew means 'holy', to mean the Rock you need to move towards Kadesh which is holiness. Have you opened all your being to the fullness of the Spirit, and then, with the confidence of the child to the mother, the bride to the husband, the flower to the sunshine, have you received by faith, and are you drinking of His Living Water?

[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, You are Holy and I need to imitate You in holiness to come to You. You are gentile and loving, although You are all powerful. Help me approach You with gentleness and love so that I can get a consistent flow of Living Water. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen.
