2013-05-10: Advancing By the Power of the Spirit

Advancing By the Power of the Spirit

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

Sometimes, due to the limitation of our human understanding, we’re unable to make the right choices or advance, as we should until we look into the Word of God and allow the Holy Spirit guide us. That’s why wisdom is so vital. As believers, we have the Spirit of wisdom, and Christ has been made Wisdom unto us. You can know how to seize the moment, gain ground and advance through the Word of God and by His Spirit, for the Spirit and the Word are one.

Thus, in this month of Advancing, if God’s Word says to do something, then you should. You have to believe Him and be assured of the fact that whatever counsel or instruction you receive of the Lord must be for your good. You have to believe that He is and He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11: 6).

Letting the Spirit guide you will make all the difference in your life this month. God said in Isaiah 1:19, “If you will only let me help you, if you will only obey me, then I will make you rich!” (TLB). This is God’s desire. He wants to help you succeed and move forward. He wants to show you what to do and how to do it, so you won’t be making mistakes and moving around in a never-ending circle.

Let the Holy Spirit guide your actions throughout this month. If you want to do anything, don’t do it like a mere man. Don’t live like an ordinary person. Live with the consciousness that God lives in you, and that He abides in you forever, and wants to help you make progress. You’re not alone here on earth. The Father sent the Comforter to be with you and live in you–to show you all the things He has made available to you in Christ Jesus.

That Comforter is the Holy Spirit. He lets you know that everything the Father has belongs to you, and He shows them to you, not just so you can take a cursory look, but for you to possess them. I encourage you to be more conscious of the presence of the Holy Spirit with you this month; He’s your helper. Invite Him to help and guide you in the choices you make and in the decisions you take. That way, you’ll live in sync with God’s will for your life and make unprecedented advancements in every area of your life. Glory to His Name!
