Being led by the Spirit


Romans 8:14:  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

To everyone who believes in God, He has given the authority to be called as children of God.  We have two masters who will lead us on the earth; one is the devil and the other is God Almighty.  God has given us His Holy Spirit as the seal of ownership that we belong to Him.  If we allow the Spirit of God to lead us in all our ways, then we are the sons and daughters of God.

Being led by the Spirit means to give our lives totally over to Him, i.e., to be obedient to Him.  How can we be obedient to Him?  By being sensitive to His voice when He speaks to us through the word or the scripture or a line in a song or through the spoken word or through our friends.  We must take into account every way the Spirit wants to talk to us or guide us.  We must be willing to make a sacrifice of our choices and desire if the Spirit wants us to give them up for something more valuable or beautiful which is in line with His choice for us.

Never follow God grudgingly.  Be led by the Spirit because that is the right thing to do.  He leads us in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.  He alone knows what would befall us if we don’t heed to His still small voice.  It is better to be led by the Spirit of God than to be led by our own whims and fancies which would ultimately lead us to regrets and making disastrous choices for ourselves!
