Like the Global Positioning System (GPS) that tells the direction and distances to a destination, the Holy Spirit is sent to guide you to where the Father wants you to go and what the Father wants you to do. The Holy Spirit has the master plan to take you from point A to point B without missing it at all. If we follow the Holy Spirit, we will not waste time, we will not lose energy, we will not lose money, and we will not lose anything.
But only Jesus followed the Holy Ghost perfectly. All of us are improving in degrees of knowing the Holy Spirit and following Him. In fact, the will of God so consumed Jesus that He told His disciples, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent me, and to finish His work.” (John. 4:34) That was His food.
Don’t listen to the lie of the devil that submitting to the Holy Spirit will make your life dull and unexciting. Walking in submission to God doesn’t make your life less exciting, it just means that your excitement is generated by God. How effective you follow the Holy Spirit and submit to Him is what is going to determine the effectiveness of your Christian race.
Following the Holy Ghost comes as a second decision to making Jesus your Lord. This second decision is not one of the many decisions, but it is the last decision you make. Jesus, through the Holy Spirit, decides for you from that point on. At salvation, Jesus brings you into sonship of the Kingdom of God, but the Holy Spirit brings you into the manifestation of that sonship. Standing on these two legs will help you so you don’t come into a condition where though you are born again, the world cannot tell the difference between you and someone without Christ in his/her life.
PRAYER: Holy Spirit, lead me into the manifestation of sonship to God through Jesus Christ.
