These little pieces of confirmation are exactly what Peter experienced as he obeyed the Spirit’s leading. “The Holy Spirit fell on all who heard the word” (Acts 10:44). When the Jerusalem church “heard these things, they fell silent. And they glorified God, saying, “Then to the Gentiles also God has granted repentance that leads to life” (11:18). “The hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number who believed turned to the Lord” (11:21). Confirmation multiplied as they rolled in from all directions so that Peter knew he was following the lead of the Holy Spirit.
Would you know the voice of the Holy Spirit through the Word of God or in prayer? Would you obey even if you didn’t fully understand? Are you prepared to put aside traditions, habits, and comforts in order to obey the Spirit?
