Guided by the Spirit
So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.Galatians 5:16
We are created to be guided by the Spirit, and we are guided by Christ, both in our thoughts and our actions. The more we know the Word, the more we can be guided by Spirit, and the more we can obey Christ. Everyday we pray for the God’s help in following the Spirit, because life is always better when we are guided by Spirit.
But when the, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. (John 16:13) The Spirit guides us in all Truth, and Christ is always with us to guide us through anything Satan puts in our path. We always remember Christ has authority over Satan, which means we call on Christ and his divine power, especially when Satan attacks. The Spirit also prepares us for the future, because Christ knows the future for each day of our life.
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love. (Ephesians 3:16-17) We have faith that Christ is with us and with a heart of love we depend on Christ to guide us in everything we do; because we have total faith in Christ. How can we not trust the Father and the Son, because they created everything and have total control of the universe, but they never take control of our free will.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. (Psalm 32:8) With faith that depends on the Lord, he will guide us and counsel us, because of his divine love for us. We can have total faith in Christ, because he never fails and all things are possible.
Knowing Christ and the Word, and living to serve Christ, is what we were created to do; and that is what gives us life to the full. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10) Only Christ can give us life to the full and fill our hearts will love and joy as will live to serve him. There is nothing on this earth that compares to knowing Christ and guided by the Spirit.
Today pray that you will be guided by the Spirit through the Word. And realize that we are blessed that we are guided by God.
Prayer: Father, help me to always be guided by the Spirit, and not by the desires of the flesh. In Jesus name, Amen
