Live by the Spirit

Posted on

Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

Galatians 5:25

The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. (Psalm 37:23) From this verse we know that the Lord delights in every detail of our life and he is willing to guide our steps in his perfect love. There is nothing in our life that is too small for God and there is nothing in our life to big for God, because all things are possible for God. It is really a blessing knowing God cares and is willing to guide us in making wise choices.

God directs our steps through the Holy Spirit, where we hear God from his Word, from other Christians, and from experiences. We are mindful to seek the Lord’s guidance in the details of our life, and the more we do this the more natural it becomes. When events occur such as witnessing to someone, teaching a Bible class, dealing in a business transaction, or making an important decision; then go to the Lord, focused on his wisdom to guide you successfully through the event.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5-6) If we seek the Lord’s wisdom, and not yield to our feelings or desires, then he takes an active part in our life. This is what it means to trust the Lord; stepping off the throne and stop being our own God. In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. You shall have no other gods before me (Exodus 20:3)

Today commune with the Lord and ask him for guidance with your choices. When we take the time to seek Godly wisdom, we start to feel the presence of God. This increases our confidence in God and keep living by the Spirit.

Prayer: Today Lord I will keep in step with the Spirit, and seek his divine guidance life. In Jesus name, Amen
