Led By The Spirit

Topic: The Blessing Of Being Led By The Holy Spirit

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

Romans 8:14 (NKJV)

Daily Reading Plan

Esther 6-10

Bible Versions:

New Living Translation (NLT)-14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.

New International Version (NIV)-14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.

Bible (TLB)-14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

Devotional Thoughts:

The evidence that we are children of God is that the Holy Spirit will lead us! The proof that God is our Father and we are His children is when we  live surrendered and obediente lives. It’s when we enjoy the elevated life of the Holy Spirit, and not in the flesh as Galatians 5: 16-17 states, ” I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.

When the Holy Spirit directs us, we will be governed by Him. He will lead us in every decision we need to make from day to day, He will lead us to see fruit and success in our spiritual walk! We will live occupied in things that belong to the Holy Spirit and not in the flesh as Romans 8: 5-6 tells us, ” For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. As you are led by the Holly Spirit, you will experience another level of life,  life in abundance!

This morning we must answer this question, who controls you? Who directs you? The truth is very clear, a child of God must be directed only by the Holy Spirit, not by  emotions, circumstances, or things he sees with natural eyes! In Romans 8: 12-13 it tells us, ” 12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. 13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.”  We should never allow ourselves to be guided by our flesh, or our desires. We have the best guide in the world, the Holy Spirit! He will teach us through His Word His will and purpose in whatever situation we face.

Foundational Scripture:

Galatians 5:18 (NKJV)-18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Romans 8:5-6 (NKJV)-5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

Psalm 143:10(NKJV)-10 Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.

Isaiah 48:16New King James Version (NKJV)-16  “Come near to Me, hear this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; From the time that it was, I was there. And now the Lord God and His Spirit Have sent Me.”

Isaiah 48:17New King James Version (NKJV)-17  Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go.

Galatians 5:16-17 (NKJV)-16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.
