In the past I have often wondered myself? Is there any visible signs? Do you feel a thingly sensation? Will a dove appear over our heads? How would I really know for sure?
Well speaking from my own personal experience you’ll definitely know. Many will have different experiences and yet some are similiar or the same. This is not as crptic as it sounds, basically it means we will not only receive and experience the Holy Spirit in different degress but we may be given different spiritual gifts at different times. It will also depend entirely on our individual state of grace.
Here are some tell tale signs of the Holy Spirit from my own personal experience :-
- You will tend to smile more then you ever did, if not visibly on your face then inwardly.
- You will feel inner peace and joy like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.
- Dirty Jokes, pictures, etc. will be offensive to you when ordinarily it never bothered you before.
- You will be guided to read certain Scripture at certain times to help you with whatever is going on in your life.
- You will have a better understanding of Scripture then ever before.
- You will have a fire to share with others your wonderful new experiences then you would normally have. ( Even if you were an introvert)
- You will be shown the ‘way’ when you least expect it.
- Some times you will be guided on how to pray.
The Gifts Of The Holy Spirit are in abundance therefore the above are just footnotes….
