Life is full of hustle and bustle. Every day we commute to our daily obligations whether it is school, work, church, practices, rehearsals, etc., It seems that we are always on our way somewhere. Occasionally we may have to travel somewhere that we are unfamiliar. In today’s modern times, this is not really a big deal. We just pull out our phones or GPS, type in the address and receive turn by turn directions. Along the way, the voiceover commands will suggest an alternative route to avoid traffic delays or other road occurrences that could slow down our commute. If we follow the directions given, we will find ourselves at our destination and go on about our business. As Spirit-filled believers in Christ, we have a spiritual GPS living on the inside of us. As Leaders in Training of an Excellent Spirit, we must train ourselves to hear the Spirit of God leading and guiding us so that we can get to our expected end without any delays.
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.” – John 16:13 KJV
When we were born again, when we accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior and became filled with the Holy Spirit, we received a truly Awesome Gift! It was a Gift that is necessary for navigating through life.
The earlier in life that we learn to listen to Him and the sooner that we learn to continually follow His Voice, the better off we will be. Life is full of many very important decisions as we progress through it; i.e. where to attend college, what car to buy, which employment opportunity to accept or who to marry etc.
All of these decisions can come to us fairly early in life. It is important to be diligent to seek the Lord on His say on all these and every decision. It is great to receive advice and counsel from trustworthy and mature believers, but nothing is better than hearing from the Lord directly. Based on the scripture above we have a right to trust that God to speak to us concerning what we should do in every situation We have a right to believe that we can and will receive the answer from the Holy Spirit in a way that will be easy to understand.
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” – Proverbs 3D5-6 KJV
Another benefit of having the Holy Spirit living on the inside of us is that we have access to Godly wisdom at all times. We all have naturally occurring wisdom to a certain degree, but we can also ask for wisdom concerning situations knowing that God will give it to us (James 1:5).
“If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him.” – Jas 1:5 AMPC
An important disclaimer to this, however, is that we should never simply utilize our natural wisdom without being sensitive to listen to the Voice of God. He will tell us what to do in reroute. When we often travel to a place, it is easy to get comfortable with the route and find ourselves no longer needing the turn by turn directions. It is easy to develop a tendency to turn down the navigation or turn it off completely. However, sometimes there may be some things we that are unaware of just a few miles down. If you knew early enough, you reroute now so you could avoid the difficulty down the road. We have to be those that always keep our trust in God and allow Him to direct us.
We encourage you always to put what God says First on your list when you are considering what steps to take in life. Learn to hear His Voice clearly. Seeking wise and Godly counsel is also of tremendous benefit. You must understand that as His child you have access to wisdom both by His Holy Spirit and through His Godly Leaders. His desire is for you to prosper and avoid danger. He wants you to safely get to the destination that He has prepared for you
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” – Jer 29:11 KJV
Allow The Lord to be your life’s GPS. With Him as your GPS, you will never get lost!
May God Bless You!
