Devotion: Obey the spirit

3

Acts 16: 6-7 “Paul and his companions traveled throughout the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been kept by the Holy Spirit from preaching the word in the province of Asia. When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to.”

Jesus told us to go to all nations to preach. Paul was following the very commandment of God and wanted to take the gospel to other frontiers but the Holy Spirit forbade him.

PrayerThere are some occasions that God would not allow us to do certain things although it is generally accepted for you to do them. It may not necessarily be because that thing is wrong, but because the timing might be wrong and that is why it is important to ask Him for guidance in everything.

God loves to talk to us pertaining to everything we do. He will talk to you in a language that you would understand. He will lead you in life into that which He wants you to do. All you have to say is “Lord, guide my spirit; I want you to lead me into that which I have to do.”

God will speak to your spirit. The Spirit of God and the Spirit of man agree (Romans 8: 16). The voice of God will be so familiar when you train your spirit through studying of the Word.

His voice is in the Word. When you study the Word you familiarize yourself with Him. He will tell you what you ought to do not what you want to do. What you want to do may not be what is supposed to be done in a particular situation. Let Him tell you and you will never make mistakes.

Prayer
Thank You Father for the guidance of your Spirit. Everyday am led by the Spirit and will follow His leading. I open my heart to His voice so that I should never miss what I ought to do in every situation. In Jesus Name.Amen
