I have on a few occasions while in prayer or while praying for somebody, thoughts and words come into my head which I can only put down to the voice of the Holy Spirit. On numerous occasions I have been warned by the Holy Spirit of impending harm - which comes into my head almost like an audible voice. For example, I was driving on the highway a few months back and a still voice in my head said "somebody is going to do a U-turn in front of you". I immediately slowed down and sure as anything a person drove from the other side of the highway, on a blind bend, across my side of the highway in front of me. If I had not slowed down I would have hit him. The reason I am discussing this is often when I relate these happenings to other Christians I get a blank response - as if to say "buddy you have had to much to drink" or I get the response "you need your head checked" but more often I get the response "I wish could also hear God". I just want to know how many of you have heard the voice of the Holy Spirit and what can we do as Christians to encourage other Christians to recognize the soft voice of the Holy Spirit. I do not believe I am special, or nuts or paranoid. Yes I do have my own thoughts which cloud my hearing but when the Holy Spirit speaks it is as if His voice is crystal clear and exceptionally peaceful. I was in a major car accident a few years back and while my car was spinning out of control, I believe the Holy Spirit spoke in that moment of turmoil. Is was as if time stood still - now there were other people in the car and believe me time did not stand still for them. Just as my car was about to roll (@ 120km/hr) the Holy Spirit told me to take my foot off the brake - no spiritual enlightenment just plain simple instruction. The result was nobody in the car was hurt because the car did not roll but actually straightened itself out and came to a halt in the grass on the side of the highway. Afterwards I found out the entire steering column was broken at the time of impact - I had no way of controlling the car - God saved our lives. Once when I went to pray for a sick child, as I walked in the hospital ward the Holy Spirit said to me that the boys father would give his life to Christ when his son is saved. Sure as anything his son was saved and he did give his life to Christ. Please share your experiences of hearing the Holy Spirit, it can only encourage those who think they do not hear from God to start listening more carefully.
