Led by the Spirit

July 5, 2015

"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God" (Rom. 8:14). The sons of God can expect to be led by the Spirit of God. Believers can expect to be led, or guided, by the Holy Spirit. Jesus, referring to the time when the Holy Spirit would come, said, "He will guide you." So we don't have to look to man for guidance - that's unscriptural. All of God's children have the Spirit of God within and can expect to be guided by Him. In February 1959, Jesus appeared to me in an open vision. I heard His footsteps coming into my hospital room. He sat on a chair by my bed and talked to me for an hour and a half about the ministry of a prophet. One of the things He said was, "The prophet's ministry is not set in the Church to guide members and tell them what to do. Under the Old Covenant, people would go to the prophet to seek advice, or direction, or guidance, because he had the Spirit of God and they didn't. No one under the Old Covenant, except the king, the priest, and the prophet, had the Holy Spirit upon them. The people knew nothing about the Spirit's leading. But under the New Covenant it does not say, 'As many as are led by the prophets, they are the sons of God.' It says, 'As many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.'" Confession: I am a child of God. I can expect to be led by the Spirit of God. He is leading me now. Source: Faith Food Devotions by Kenneth E. Hagin.
