One day as these men were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Appoint Barnabas and Saul for the special work to which I have called them.”
So, after more fasting and prayer, the men laid their hands on them and sent them on their way.
See the amazing faith of these mature men who changed the trajectory of their lives around a moment in time when the Holy Spirit spoke. When the Holy Spirit spoke, godly men and women followed him like a compass.
- The Holy Spirit told Abraham to leave the land of his ancestors and go, Abraham not knowing where he would go.
- The Holy Spirit repeatedly assured Abraham he would have a son, someday.
- The Holy Spirit told Abraham to kill his only son. Then the Holy Spirit stopped him at the last moment.
- The Holy Spirit led Gina and me to each other in 1973 before we knew God.
- The Holy Spirit told me in 1974 to pay back everything I had stolen or borrowed.
- The Holy Spirit met me on Bethel Drive in Summersville and asked me to give up my family, business, and wealth to follow him.
- The Holy Spirit led us to Saint James in 2004.
- The Holy Spirit told me one day in 2007 to get rid of the negativity at CAW if I wanted his continued blessing on us.
- In 2013 the Holy Spirit spoke in our collective hearts to take CAW on a faith-based journey.
I don’t know how the Holy Spirit speaks, but I know when he speaks. I never want to miss his voice.
