OBEY THE SPIRIT
To walk in the Spirit is to obey the initial promptings of the Spirit.
Acts 10:19 While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee. (KJV) . . . Who do you turn to for daily guidance on how to live or what decision to make?
Scripture tells us the only Guide worth trusting is the Holy Spirit. He is the only One who knows our past completely, from the moment we were conceived to the present, and He also knows our future, from this day, on through eternity. He knows God’s plan and purpose for us today and for each and every day of our lives. He also knows what is good and right for u, and what is bad for us. Jesus repeatedly referred to the Spirit as the “Spirit of truth” (Jn.14:17; 15:26; 16:13). John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. (KJV)
The Spirit of truth is like a compass inside us somewhere, always pointing us toward what Jesus would be, do or say at any given moment.
God WANTS to make His will to be known to you. He wants you to know what to do and when to do it. Therefore, we can trust the Holy Spirit to be your daily Guide, day or night! After the Lord poured out the Holy Spirit on the disciples, they found themselves led in profound ways by the Spirit. The verses below give just a few examples of how the Holy Spirit dealt with His people in ways that provided very personal and specific guidance. What He did for them then, He can to do for you today.
Acts 11:12 And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man's house: (KJV)
Acts 13:2 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. (KJV)
Acts 16:6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia, (KJV)
Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (KJV)
Galatians 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. (KJV)
Are there any conditions placed upon the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our lives? Yes.
#1. We must remain yielded to the Spirit. We must say yes to the Spirit when He prompts us to take a certain action or say a certain word. We must give mental assent to the Spirit’s direction, and then we must obey His prompting and follow through by doing or saying what He has told us to do or say. The Holy Spirit often speaks to us in the stillness of our hearts with a word of conviction or assurance. When the Holy Spirit is directing us away from something harmful, we very often have a heaviness, a feeling of trouble, forewarning or uneasiness in our spirits. When the Holy Spirit is directing us toward helpful things, we usually feel a deep inner peace, an eagerness to see what God will do, and a feeling of joy.
#2. We must believe Him and obey Him. We are much more likely to hear what the Holy Spirit has to say if we are really listening for Him to speak. We are much more likely to see the Holy Spirit’s direction if we are looking for Him. God is a “rewarder of those who seek Him” (Heb.11:6). We are to work hard seeking His guidance, asking for it, watching for it, anticipating it, and receiving it, and always thanking Him for it!
The Holy Spirit has come to reveal God’s Truth to us. He has come in His all-knowing ability to teach us what we need to know in order to live obedient and faithful lives. Trust Him to guide you always! You will not regret it.
