Discipleship Matters – Deepening Your Walk with God/Intimacy with God

I AM COMFORTABLE BEING COACHED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT:
What has been your experience being led by the Holy Spirit? What challenges have you faced in listening to the Holy Spirit?

A STORY:
Recently I was seeking to decide about some painful memories in my past. I thought I knew what I was to do, but I decided to create an environment in which I would make myself available to be coached by the Holy Spirit. I created some questions that I thought the Holy Spirit would want to ask me. It was extremely helpful to respond to his voice and make a decision that was filled with love and reconciliation.

Can you be coached by the Holy Spirit? I offer this plan for your consideration.

You may be thinking of an area of life that is challenging you personally, and you would like coaching in it. There are two options from my point of view. One option is to find someone who could be your coach and ask him or her to take on the job of asking the questions that will help you take action steps. On the other hand, you might let the Holy Spirit coach you.

DIGGING INTO THE BIBLE:
Romans 8:14:

“For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God”

FOR EXAMPLE: Here is how the Holy Spirit might ask you a divinely directed coaching session:

Holy Spirit speaking: Good morning Dennis. What would you like to talk about today?

Your Response: Lord, I would like to talk to you about my parenting.

Pick any area of your life and put it in the “I would like to talk about” blank.

Holy Spirt speaking: Good morning _______. What would you like to talk about today?

Lord, I would like to talk about _________________________.

Continue to dig deep, be vulnerable, and delight in the flow of intimacy with the Holy Spirit

DISCUSSION AND DISCOVERY: (with the Holy Spirit)
Let the Holy Spirit ask you these questions:
1. What are your concerns in this area of life?
2. What is your current experience in dealing with this challenge?
3. What does my Word say about that concern of yours?

APPLICATION AND ACCOUNTABILITY (with the Holy Spirit)
4. What is the first step you need to take to have success in this area of your life?
5. What resources will you need to pursue in order to take this next step?
6. What obstacles do you see standing in the way of your success?
7. How will you overcome these obstacles?
8. What do you want to ask me about finding your resources for success?
9. What have I told you in my Word, the Scriptures? How will you remember my Word?
10. Whom will you share this with for encouragement?
