HOW TO BE Led By The Holy Spirit

Being led by the Holy Spirit – it’s not as complicated as we make it out to be.
 
 
Believers ARE led by the Holy Spirit.
 
Romans 8:14 those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
 
 
Look at these three ways of being led by the Holy Spirit
 
 
1 – The Word – our roadmap
 
 
2 – The conscience – our compass
 
 
3 – The Holy Spirit – our guide
 
 
When you read, study and meditate on the written word you’ll develop an understanding of the principles and the ways of God. Then your mind will be renewed and your sensitivity to the Lord’s Leading will increase.
 
 
The natural man cannot receive the things of the Spirit because they are spiritually discerned.
 
 
1 Corinthians 2:14   The Holy Spirit will NEVER lead you in a direction contrary to the written word
 
 
Give yourself to INSTRUCTION
 
 
Participate in Bible Studies –   God sets teachers on the body – take advantage of that.
 
 
Ephesians 4:11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
 
 
 
When you read and study the bible meditate on what you’ve read and pray as you meditate.
 
 
 
This is where praying in the spirit is so powerful.
 
 
 
As you pray in the Spirit the Lord will impress on your spirit what His will is.
 
 
Romans 8:26 the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.
 
 
Apply to your life what you’ve learned and been impressed with. Now you can begin to walk in the things the Holy Spirit is impressing on you and you will be walking in the will of God.
 
 
Romans 8:5 For those who live according to the flesh or sinful nature, set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. 8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.
 
 
Spiritual people desire the things of the Spirit
 
Proverbs 3:6 In ALL your ways ACKNOWLEDGE Him and He will direct your paths.
 
 
Renew your mind
 
 
To be led by God’s Spirit you can’t follow a culture that doesn’t follow God
 
 
Exodus 23:2 Don’t follow the crowd in doing wrong…
 
 
 
Just because everyone is doing it doesn’t mean it’s right
 

Just because it’s LEGAL doesn’t mean it’s MORAL     Romans 12:2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is.
