    The Holy Spirit has “invited” me to do a lot of things in my life, many of which I did not want to do. Sometimes His invitations are just a feeling or a nudge and sometimes they are more like a cattle prod or command. One thing that I can honestly say is that he has never invited me to do anything, small or big, that did not turn out better than my wildest expectations. As Maxie Dunham, one of my mentors, use to say, “He outwits me.”

    The key of course is first hearing the invitation and then following through. Hearing requires listening and listening requires spending a lot of time with Him and learning to distinguish his voice from all the others in your life including your own (see James 3:17). Another thing I have learned is obedience begets obedience. The more I say, “here I am Lord” the easier it gets.
