Excellent look at recognizing the Spirit
Experiencing the Spirit by Henry & Mel Blackaby is a short but powerful primer on how to recognize the power of the Holy Spirit and allow it to work through you. The authors give a terrific explanation about what the Spirit does and does not do. I've done other Bible studies about the Holy Spirit, but never have I learned as much as I did in this slender volume. The authors want to encourage believers to stretch outside of their comfort zone. When we work within our own talents and capabilities, we are comfortable and tend to rely on our own strength. The Spirit often pushes outside of those realms so that we are forced to rely on it. This very thoughtful book is one that will stick with me for a long time to come.

We rarely allow the Holy Spirit to unleash His power in our lives. The Lord has work for us. Too often, we attempt to serve on our own terms, using our talents. The Lord wants to work through us supernaturally. When we serve only with our talents, we tend to think we accomplished something on our own. We forget to give the glory to God. When we allow Him to work supernaturally through us, we know it was not by our efforts but by the Lord's. Our natural talents are important and should not be ignored. We should develop them and use them for God's glory; however, some of the best speakers are those without that natural-born talent. For God uses the most unlikely people.
Henry and Melvin Blackaby back up their statements with scripture and logic. Experiencing the Spirit is well written and easy to understand and read. Readers will recognize the name Henry Blackaby from his previous book Experiencing God. When I see a book with the name Blackaby on it, I know it is filled with God's blessings.
