What moves you to make a decision? Is it pressure, trouble, or circumstances? If so, there is a higher way to live. And, the good news is that it is available to every believer.
Romans 8:14 says "For all who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God." This passage tells us that sons and daughters of God can be expected to be led by their father God. When you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, God himself came to live inside you by way of His Holy Spirit. You may have even had a "knowing" like nothing you've ever known before. By that I mean, you knew something had changed. Your address didn't change, nor did your place of employment change. But you had an undeniable change on the inside and you knew things were different. How did you know there was a change? It was because of what we read in Romans 8:14. Those who are children of God can expect to know and be led by Him. God placed a confidence in you that you belong to Him. You are in the family of God.
As a born again believer, God wants to lead and guide your life. What an amazing concept. Imagine the God of the universe knows all about your past and even more importantly, he has a good plan for your future. He desires to lead you in all your dealings, in your relationships, in your career, and in your money decisions. And when God is leading you, your life will be far greater than a life without him. He only wants good things for His children.
If you desire to be led by the Spirit of God, then I encourage you to spend time in His Word and in prayer each day. Begin today by saying "Thank you Heavenly Father, for taking up residence inside me when I made you Lord of my life. I want to follow you and be led by your Holy Spirit."
