  • Are You Led by God’s Spirit? — Monday July 26, 2021

    Are You Led by God’s Spirit?

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

    Romans 8:14

    As a son or daughter of God, it is so important to be in submission to Him. In our relationship to God, our submission is never forced. We yield to God because of our love for Him. We never do things for God because we have to; we serve God because we love Him. Again, never by force.

    Understand, a person either serves God or Satan. If a person serves Satan, they are under his influence, and their lives are controlled by the flesh. They are walking according to their fleshly appetites and cannot please God. Paul made this very clear and really got his point across:

    For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His (Romans 8:5-9).

    If the Spirit of God is controlling your life, and you are in submission to God, then you will be pleasing God. The Scriptures make it very clear! If you are walking in the Spirit, you will not walk in contradiction to what God has said in His Word. It is only through the power of the Holy Spirit that you can walk in harmony with God.

    Sometimes, it is not until we come to Christ that we realize He knows what is best for our lives. We make a mess of our lives, but it is not until we come to Christ, to be in submission to Him, that He can work through our lives.

    God being Who and What He is, and we being who and what we are, the only thinkable relation between us is one of full Lordship on His part and complete submission on ours.
