"Where is he who set his Holy Spirit among them, who sent his glorious arm of power..." Isaiah 63:11 Can you FEEL the presence of the Holy Spirit without education? Do miracles still occur? Can a child age 4 have a vision from God before she can read? Akiane Kramarik is now 12 years old but she started painting visions of God at the age of 4. Without a painting lesson, we can then believe her talent was assigned by the Holy Spirit. Her Mother was an atheist so God was never discussed in her home. She really had never been taught anything about the Father, Son, Holy Spirit or the bible. Akiane had visions and told her Mom she has visited heaven numerous times. She gives God the glory for her talent. Our Father, Son, Holy Spirit used this child to draw parents to Himself, and reveal to us He is among us. TRUTH: People hardly remember what you say, but they always remember how you made them FEEL. How does magnificent art make you feel? Music? Pause now and consider how the presence of God makes us FEEL? Our soul is imprinted with words of truth. Akiane's parents witheld any thoughts about God - but Akiane was able to FEEL safe in the presence of the UNSEEN Holy Spirit. Comforted by the invisible person of the Holy Spirit, he chose to bring wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and show Akiane heaven. He guided her, and gifted her with a talent to paint what she saw. God's word says "Now for each one the manifestation of the spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another the ability to speak in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines." I Corinthians 12:7-11. And in the book of Acts 13:2 "While they were worshipping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, "Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them." Clearly, the Holy Spirit gifted this child with the ability to paint for the good of all. The Holy Spirit gives the gifts of wisdom, faith, knowledge, prophecy, tongues, just as he determines. What is your spiritual gift? Are you using it to bless others? Halleluiah! The Holy Spirit, a person sent to us from God:
