The Holy Spirit’s Guidance of Believers

The Holy Spirit guides individual believers

Romans 8:14

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

 

Galatians 5:18

18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

 

He guides through the word of God, spiritually understood and kept before the mind

Isaiah 59:21

21 “As for Me,” says the Lord, “this is My covenant with them: My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants’ descendants,” says the Lord, “from this time and forevermore.”

 

He guides in prayer

Romans 8:26-27

26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

 

He guides through spiritual gifts

1 Corinthians 12:7-11

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

 

He guides in Christian living

Romans 8:14

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

 

Galatians 5:25

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

 

He guides in witness and evangelism

Mark 13:11 also Mark 10:19-20; Luke 12:11-12

11 But when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will speak. But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.

 

Acts 8:29

29 Then the Spirit said to Philip, “Go near and overtake this chariot.”

 

1 Corinthians 2:13

13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

 

He guides in ministry

Acts 16:6-7; 20:22

16:6 Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. After they had come to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit did not permit them.

20:22 And see, now I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there,

 

He guides into a knowledge of truth

John 16:13

13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

 

The Bible frequently likens the Holy Spirit to a flame (Isa. 4:4; Matt. 3:11; Acts 2:3–4). He warms the heart, enlightens the mind, and empowers people’s spirits (1 Thessalonians 5:19). He enables believers to be sanctified (Romans 8:4, 13). He inspired the writing of the scripture (2 Peter 1:20-21); He anoints Believers (1 John 20, 27) He convicts (16:7-8). He gives guidance to all believers (Romans 8:14; Galatians 5:18).

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
