Being led by the Spirit is at the heart of every servant of God. Even in the Old Testament, they wanted and needed divine guidance, yet had to depend on a Prophet, or an angelic visitation. Yet the Prophet or the angel didn’t appear very often. Today, we have the Spirit within us to guide us every single minute of every single day and yet mess up so much.
So how do we cultivate or set an atmosphere for the Spirit of God to lead us and speak to us in our daily lives?
Worship- Singing songs about Him, who He is, not what He has done for us.
Prayer - Not the prayer of petition, but of thanksgiving and telling Him how much we love Him.
Fasting - Denying our flesh to make us more sensitive to the Spirit.
All of these things sets the atmosphere for God to speak to us. But here is the key — be quick to obey! Quick obedience leads to more opportunities for God to speak. Disobedience brings dullness of hearing. Let’s be like Paul and become an obedient believer.
Are you still hanging in there with me? This book is rich in truth! I’m praying that you finish these chapters strong. I want to remind you that the reason we are reading this slowly is so that you are able to treat this book as a study and a guide to get into God’s Word and get your spirit in-tune!
What are you doing this week to set an atmosphere for the Spirit of God to lead you and speak to you? Share with us on the group page!
