LED BY THE SPIRIT

For as many as are Led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God

Romans 8:14

Your ability to be led by the spirit is an index showing your growth level and sensitivity to the voice of the Holy Spirit. To hear God and be led by His Spirit, your heart must be renewed by the word of God.

As believers, we have not been called to just live normal natural humankind of life. God has called us into His marvellous light, so darkness must know that a change has occurred. We have been upgraded from the natural realm to the supernatural.

God’s main goal, however, is not just for us to be spirit beings by reason of the union of our spirit together with His, His goal is to spiritualize our minds and thoughts. He wants to have an influence on our soul realm.

Being led by the Spirit means we are quick to submit our emotions, intellect and mind to the Holy Spirit. Many times, believers spend a lot of effort trying to seek help from the outside: the world systems and its ideologies when the Spirit of God resides inside of us. At other times too, people may want to make major life’s decisions like who to marry, which city to move to, what church to settle in, yet they’re going to only tap wisdom from their own intellect or take a friend’s opinion.

Whilst there might be some good from any of these other sources outside of the Spirit of God, we can’t but seek to be led by the Spirit of God. He alone has perfect clue into the mind of God concerning us.

1 Corinthians 2:11 lets us know that only the Spirit of God knows the thought or mind of God. On any matter, only the Spirit of God has the perfect idea of what it is that’s the perfect will of God, which is why we must seek to be led by Him.

One primary way by which we are led is through the word of God. By giving the word first place in our lives, our minds are renewed, and our discernment sharpened.

Some people elevate spectacular experiences, like night visions, roadside prophecy etc. over the word of God. That’s the easiest way to enter deception and error.

Believers want to be led by the Spirit but most times they seek the spectacular. The word of God is enough to lead us, the Spirit of God will never lead outside of the word, given that He the Spirit inspired the written word (2Timothy 3:16).

God wants to lead you and you can be Led at all times.
