THE LIGHT DAILY MEDITATION

TOPIC: LED BY THE SPIRIT
TEXT: Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
The destination of a man reveals the instructor behind his movement; even if the instructor is invincible.
I recently read about a man who is a multimillionaire in dollars; he never had any formal education. Someone asked him, “How did you grow such a multimillions business empire?” He replied, “I always do this: Whenever someone comes along with an idea, I don’t allow myself to think through it mentally. I go into my closet and pray. I wait as long as it takes until I hear something. It may take days. I don’t care, but I remain quiet and alone with the Lord until I know by inward witness what I am to do.” He also shared that there were times ideas seemed really good, but in his enquiry to the Lord, the Holy Spirit would instruct him not to venture into them. At times ideas seemed like dreaded-end opportunities, the Holy Spirit would tell him to go ahead and invest. Every single time, he made a right choice.
It is evident from the above narration that following the inward witness gave him special insight into the supernatural and how to become financially prosperous. This man took his time to grow and train his human spirit to be led by the Spirit of God. You too can; you can enjoy this special insight and guidance in every aspect of your life. It will not happen just at the snap of the fingers, but if you remain steadfast with the Holy Spirit, you will begin to experience His best friendship.
Our anchor scripture puts it clearly that it’s those who allow the Holy Spirit to lead them that are the true children of God. In other words, those who are not led by the Holy Spirit are not God’s children. What does it mean to be led by the Holy Spirit? It means subjecting yourself and allowing the Holy Spirit to tell you what to say, how to say it, and when to say it as seen in Luke 12:12. It entails subjecting all your decisions and actions to the confirmation and approval of the Holy Spirit as seen in John 16:13.
In addition, the working of the Holy Spirit in a believer’s life is an evidence that such a person is a child of God. Furthermore, the Holy Spirit will prevent the believer from falling into the net and traps of the world and its wickedness. He will always speak to to you in small still voice; dreams, vision, trance, counsel, to teach, instruct, and direct you on the path to go and guide you against all dangers as stated in Psalm 32:8.
How can one be led by the Holy Spirit?
√ It is by meditating on the Word of God daily and all times; Joshua 1:8 says, “meditate on His Word day and night and you will be prosperous and successful in all you do.”
√ To get to a place in your life where you can be led by the Holy Spirit, you must be able to recognize His voice. This can only come through taking time to study and meditate on the Word of God. As you meditate on the Word of God, you are training your human spirit to recognize God’s voice and be more in tune with what He has to say to you.
√ To be led by the Holy Spirit, you must put the Word of God above all else. Don’t hear or incline your ears to what the media and politicians are saying. Don’t ever make plans based on what anyone other than God says. Listen to Him. He is our leader through all troubles. He has a plan for you and it’s good. Follow it. Follow Him!.
√ To be led by the Holy Spirit, you should learn to respond instantly to your spirit if you’ve learnt to recognize the voice of the Holy Spirit. When you develop and train your spirit by studying and meditating on the Word above all things, the Holy Spirit will find your human spirit a dwelling place. And obeying your spirit will become the same as obeying the Holy Spirit.
Brethren, we have just received the Holy Spirit afresh at this Pentecost, therefore, use this opportunity to train your spirit, grow stronger in faith and begin to enjoy supernatural guidance that would lead you to do exceedingly above all you can think of or imagine. Amen!
*Do you know when you walk without the Holy Spirit, it’s like trekking miles on foot. But with the Holy Spirit, you’re on the Divine aircraft?
*Holy Spirit is the mark of God’s ownership upon your life.
*Father pour Your Spirit upon me that I may walk diligently with You never to depend on my human reasoning.
*Lord take away whatever that stands in-between me and the presence of the Holy Spirit in Jesus Name.
