I’ll put my Spirit in you and make it possible for you to do what I tell you and live by my commands.
Ezekiel 36:27 (MSG)
This is the power of grace at work in us, and it lifts the pressure off of our shoulders. Our trust and dependence are upon God’s Spirit working in us through His Word, transforming us, giving us the faith we need, and empowering us to become all He has created us to be.
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
Romans 8:16 (NKJV)
The Holy Spirit bears witness of our identity in Christ. He continually whispers into our hearts that we are children of God, that we have His favor and blessing. The more we listen to the Holy Spirit who will confirm the Word of God, the less receptive will we be to the voices of fear, doubt, confusion or condemnation. Let us spend some time every day with the Holy Spirit as He guides us into all truth.
Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
Psalm 16:11 (KJV)
Getting in the presence of God through His Word, worship, praise, prayer and simply talking with Him, takes us to a place of joy that is independent of any circumstances. Out of this fellowship with God that is available to all will come wisdom and revelation to guide us on the path of life.
But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
1 Thessalonians 4:9 (KJV)
God indwelling us by His Holy Spirit compels us to want to love one another. As we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit who is at work in us, we will find ourselves being led more fully into living a life of love, kindness and compassion as we receive God’s love for us in Christ.
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:18 (NKJV)
The more we behold Jesus through the Word, the more are we transformed into His image and likeness. As we seek His will in all of the areas of our life, we will find ourselves being led from glory to glory through the wisdom and counsel of the Holy Spirit.
Lord, You will establish peace for us, For You have also done all our works in us.
Isaiah 26:12 (NKJV)
The more we can trust in God’s Spirit working in us, the more will we find ourselves at peace. We come to find that in all we are called to do, it is really God working in us—always in proportion to our faith—who enables us to walk in victory and to live the overcoming life.
For we are fellow workmen (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God; you are God’s garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, [you are] God’s building.
1 Corinthians 3:9 (AMPC)
Every believer has an assignment from God, we have a role to play when it comes to God fulfilling His plans and purposes in this earth. And as we yield to God’s plans and purposes for our life, we are shaped and developed in the process, the Holy Spirit working in us to make us more fully into all He has called us to be.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Proverbs 3:6 (KJV)
When we make it our practice to keep our attention and focus on God through His Word, we will find ourselves being more receptive to the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit. When we acknowledge God in all things, He will direct our paths into the good He has already prepared for us.
