What’s the difference between the prophetic and the mystical? Maybe more to the point, what’s the difference between those moments when we don’t have to worry about what we’ll say or when we’ll say it, with the assurance that the Spirit of our Father will be speaking through us and the magical thinking to which much of the church clings? These are hard questions and it’s important that we find right answers and come to right conclusions about them. George, in our discussion, uses what we viewed as a key word and key concept necessary for this to be the work of the Holy Spirit instead of some sort of magical, mystical foolishness. The word is “devotion.” In our devotion to the Lord and his word, we break up the fallow ground of our lives, allowing the good seed of the Holy Spirit to be sown in us. This devotion to Christ and the things of God is what prepares us for what the Spirit wants to do in our lives, at a moment’s notice.
