Dr. A. J. Gordon tells of a Welsh preacher who, having been scheduled to preach one night, asked to be allowed to withdraw for a time before the service. 

He remained in seclusion so long that the good man of the house sent his servant to request him to come & meet the waiting congregation.

As she came near the room she heard what seemed to be an indication of conversation between two parties & though in subdued tone of voice, she caught the words, "I will not go unless You go with me."

Without interfering, she returned & reported, "He will come all right & the Other will come, too."

And sure enough, when he came, the Other One came along & with such power that it proved a wonderful service in which many found newness of life.

It is both our privilege & duty thus to allow the Holy Spirit to work along with us as we endeavor to teach others about the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thess 5:19 (AMPC): “Do not quench (suppress or subdue) the [Holy] Spirit.”

“Without the Spirit of God, we can do nothing. We are as ships without the wind, branches without sap, and like coals without fire, we are useless.” - Charles Spurgeon.
