For as Many Are Led by the Spirit of God

text size A A A

What a privilege we have to be guided by the Holy Spirit. The God of the universe directing our daily lives here on this earth. Is this for real? Yes it is. The God of this universe surely has better things to do than to be engage in our daily, hourly, minutely living? After all He has a universe to run.

However, what gives God greater pleasure than to indwell His creation and guide them around the potholes of life. He leads us in the paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake. He enjoys our pathway as He accompanies us along the way. Psalm 22:3 tells us, “God enthrones Himself in the praises of His people”.

God desires to walk with us. God Almighty – Creator of heaven and earth called out Abraham to walk with Him. He would accompany Abraham to a place that He would lead him to. God promised to bless Abraham and to make his name great. Today, centuries later, Abraham is spoken of around the world. God guided Abraham in all of his travels. Abraham is called the friend of God.

God called Moses when he was living in his father-in-law’s house to accomplish a great task for Him. The task was to lead the children ofIsraelout of thelandofEgyptand into the land God had promised Abraham. God was with Moses every step of the way. God was with Moses when he went before Pharoah. God was with Moses when he encouraged the Israelites in Egypt and gave them hope. God was right there with Moses at the edge of the Red Sea. God was in the wilderness with Moses and the Israelites. God spoke face to face with Moses. Moses and God’s relationship became so close that God allowed Moses to see His back. God placed His hand over Moses face as He passed by, because no one can see God and continue to live on this earth.

God our Creator desires to be our Savior, our friend, and our Father. The Lord Jesus Christ when He started His ministry chose twelve disciples. These disciples accompanied Him throughout His ministry. God loves to be in the company of his people. All who come to God by faith through the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation receive redemption and the Holy Spirit. We are sealed with the Holy Spirit unto the Day of redemption – that is until the moment Jesus comes and takes His church with Him. Until that time, while we are here on earth, we are indwelt with the Holy Spirit. God Himself living in our spirit.

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. Romans 8:14. This is the proof that you are a child of God. When you know and have experienced an exact time and place in your life when and where you asked and accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior. From that moment onward, you have experienced God’s Holy Spirit guiding you in your spirit.

God wants us to be sure we are one of his children. The proof that we are a child of God is His Spirit living within us. It is incumbent upon us to know that we are one of God’s children. The consequence of not being a child of God is eternal damnation. John 3:16 - 18
