Thoughts of Devotion:
This morning it is important to understand that every vision of God must be birthed and directed by the Holy Spirit. Those of us who walk a life filled with the Holy Spirit will experience His guidance at every stage of there Christian journey. In Ezekiel 36:27 it tells us, “I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.” Only through the leading of the Spirit can we carry out the vision that God has set before us, without this we will fail!
This year 2021 we will need to discern the will of God, the voice of the Holy Spirit in our hearts! We are able to see how the Apostle Paul had to understand this when we read Acts 16: 6-7, “Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. After they had come to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit did not permit them.” The Holy Spirit closed the door twice on Paul, so he had to obey the Holy Spirit and wait for His direction. It is important not only to enjoy the doors that God opens, but also to accept the ones that are closed!
There will be times where we will not understand the process of God in the vision. It is in these moments that we should not go according to our own reasoning, or according to our human logic, when in truth we are required to obey the direction of the Holy Spirit. The basis of human logic is not always the basis of a vision! Let us always remember what 1 Corinthians 2:14 tells us, “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” Let us pray that today we can be obedient to the God give vision in these times.
