Today’s Promise

The Holy Spirit Leads Me

Romans 8:13

For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.


There are only two kinds of people in the world; those led by the Holy Spirit and those led by their own desires. As a follower of Christ, the Holy Spirit speaks to you and guides you in the way you should go.

You don’t have to reach a certain level of spiritual maturity or have a special anointing to be led by the Spirit. Jesus promised the Holy Spirit to all who would follow Him. If you are born again through faith in Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit is in you and leading you today.

To be led by the Holy Spirit, you must be listening for His voice.

The Old Testament prophet Elijah in 1 Kings 18 discovered that God doesn’t speak through the wind, or the earthquake, or the fire. God speaks through a still small voice. If you are not careful, you can miss the Spirit’s voice amid the noise and distraction of the day.

To be led by the Spirit, you have to have your heart tuned to His voice.

You have to be listening for His voice and prompting in every situation.

To be led by the Holy Spirit, you must obey what you hear. God doesn’t speak to us, so we can decide if we are going to obey. God reveals Himself to those who are open and obedient to His will.

The Holy Spirit leads you step-by-step.

God rarely gives you the big picture or the final destination. Like a spiritual GPS, He only reveals the next step you should take.

Look at that promise again.

For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. – Romans 8:13

The more you keep your spiritual ears open, and the more you obey what you hear, the more you will find the Holy Spirit speaking to you. He will lead and direct you as never before.

Make this confession.

As a child of God, the Holy Spirit leads me.
The Holy Spirit speaks in a still small voice.
The Holy Spirit leads me one step at a time.
The more I listen for His voice, the more He leads me through the day.

In Jesus Name,
Amen
