For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. Romans 8:14 (AMPC)
One distinguishing characteristic of God’s children is that they are led by His Spirit.
God desires, knows, and has prepared the best for us. In order to experience and enjoy God’s best for us it is imperative that we walk and live according to His purposes and plans. This is only possible when we allow God to lead us.
He desires to lead us for our own profiting in every area of our life whether health, family, relationships, ministry, work, career, marriage, business, or investment. He delights in our total wellbeing, our health, our prosperity.
God leads us through His Spirit who’s joined with our spirit. Romans 8:16
The Spirit of God dwells in us.1 Corinthians 3:16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and [that] the Spirit of God dwells in you?
So, the first step in letting God lead us is acknowledging the personal presence of the Holy Spirit dwelling in us right now. This is exactly what Proverbs 3:6 emphasizes saying “in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. To acknowledge someone or something is to recognize their presence and relevance. It is to know them one on one.
How can you let someone help you, lead you, direct you when you don’t even know them, when you’re oblivious to their presence?
Allow God to lead you, know that His Spirit is united with your spirit, you’re one. You’re joined with the Lord you’re one spirit with Him according to 1Corinthians 6:17.
Therefore, God doesn’t lead you from far away. He doesn’t lead you from far high above. Yes, He’s God in heaven but He fills heaven and earth and much more so He lives in His fullness in you! Since He’s set up His eternal home in you, He leads you from within you! His kingdom is within you, his instructions, guidance are all within you. So, pay attention to, listen to your spirit or heart. That’s where God’s leading is.
Proverbs 4:23 Keep vigilant watch over your heart; [that’s] where life starts. (Message Bible). This kind of vigilant watch is like the one where you watch your phone expecting a call that’s going to change your life forever! This is the starting point of letting God lead – keep vigilant watch over your heart – that’s where life, leading, guidance, instruction starts! Because that’s where God’s Spirit is and lives!
