Guidance

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Romans 8:14 KJV

None of us has traveled the road of life before. And none of us have traveled into eternity either.

If we are to get to our destination we need to learn to follow the directions of the Holy Spirit.

God has a plan and purpose for our lives that will only be realized to the degree we enlist His aid in getting us there.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11 KJV

It’s really good to have a knowledgeable Guide who knows how to get you where you’re going.


The Word


Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O Lord God of hosts.
Jeremiah 15:16 KJV

The words of God are found in only one place; the Bible. That’s why it’s called “the Word”. Unlike all other writings it is a living book. 

For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.  Hebrews 4:12 AMP

No matter what you are facing right now, the Word of God hidden in your heart will strengthen, establish, and lead you to victory. 

. . .  for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.   A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: . . .  Matthew 12:34‭-‬35 KJV

Receive the Word. Believe the Word. Speak the Word. It governs everything.


Be Being Filled


And the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them. And you will be turned into another man.
1 Samuel 10:6 MEV

Sons and Daughters of God are led by the Spirit of God. Let the Spirit teach you how to walk in the supernatural enablements of God. Be being filled with the Holy Spirit every moment of your life.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. Romans 8:14 MEV

and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to speak.  Acts 2:4 MEV

Do not be drunk with wine, for that is reckless living. But be filled with the Spirit. Ephesians 5:18 MEV

But you, beloved, build yourselves up in your most holy faith. Pray in the Holy Spirit.  Jude 1:20 MEV


Filled & Led


Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, Luke 4:1 MEV

The two most critical things a Christian must be willing to do after becoming born-again is to be filled with the Holy Spirit and to be led by Him.

You can trust His leading. He will never lead you into a coflict you cannot win. 

The shepherd boy David was led into battle with Goliath to show David and Israel what one man could do in the strength of the Lord. He led him into victory. 

God could have destroyed Goliath and the whole Philistine army with the breath of His nostrils. He didn’t need David but David needed Him.

God will lead you into conflict to demonstrate your victory in Christ. Be ever filled with His Spirit and then let Him lead you.


Guidance

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. [Prov. 6:23.]
Psalm 119:105 AMPC

The Bible is both the compass and the road map the Holy Spirit uses to guide and lead us.

By the Spirit illuminated Scripture we can both know which path to take in life and we know how to travel it to our God given destiny.

Thus says the Lord: Stand by the roads and look; and ask for the eternal paths, where the good, old way is; then walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk in it! [Matt. 11:29.] Jeremiah 6:16 AMPC

Don’t be rebellious or hestant to be obedient. Yield to the directives given by the Spirit as you ponder the the Word of God (the Bible).

God is Faithful and Trustworthy.


No Impossibilities

For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1:37 KJV

You cannot fail when you walk with God. His Word says you can do all things through Christ which continually strenghens you.

We so limit ourselves if we solely rely on our own human ability and acumen. By design of our Creator, God, we are only living at our maximum potential when united with, and yielded to, Him.

Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 4:6 KJV


Church


But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil. Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me. The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.
Psalms 92:10‭-‬13 KJV

We are to be fed by the Word and led by the Spirit. The local church is the place that Jesus chose to instruct, encourage and bless His own. The church is the house of God and the house of truth.
But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. 1 Timothy 3:15 KJV

Every true believer needs the church and every church needs the believer.
