Thought of the Day November 24, 2021 Inspirations of the Holy Spirit

By 11:19 AM

“My Jesus, it is truly easy to become holy; it just takes a little good will! And if He finds this minimum of good will in a soul, He quickly gives Himself to her. And nothing can stop Him, neither our faults nor our falls, absolutely nothing. Jesus hurries to help that soul; and if the soul is faithful to this grace from God, she can in a short time reach the highest level of holiness that a created being can attain here below. God is very generous and does not refuse His grace to anyone. He gives even more than we ask for. The shortest road is faithfulness to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit.” St Faustina

 

The Holy Spirit has been poured out upon us to sanctify us, to bring us into a fuller intimacy of relationship with God. He gives us nuggets of inspirations, moments of grace, which will help us in our journey to holiness. These inspirations are the still voice of God guiding us to ways that will deepen our oneness with God. It may be the grace to express love in service for someone. It may be the grace of deeper repentance for our sins. It may be the grace to come aside and be still so that the Lord can speak a word to us in the Scriptures. While these inspirations are given for our spiritual benefit, there are many other inspirations and distractions that are not of God. These seek to jam our antennas so that we do not pay attention the inspirations of the Holy Spirit. The more we can distinguish between the two and choose to be faithful to those of the Holy Spirit, the more fruitful our life will be in relationship to God.
