For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. Romans 8:14
People are being led all the time, whether they want to be led or not. Bosses lead their workers in what needs to be done to get the job done. Teachers lead students in what needs to be learned and how to learn it. Various people in authority lead a group of people in being a group or a community.
There are many who put themselves in a position of being led by others. They follow the example of other people and live like they do. People change their clothing or hair because of some celebrity they are following. Others will do the same following a friend or other peers around them. It is common for a person to do something he normally would not do, because he is being led by friends.
The majority of people are also led by their own personal feelings. They do what they feel is best for their own lives.
While being led by these different methods may not always be a bad thing, they are never the best way to be led. Each of these ways are being led by a person, who has faults and does not always know the best choice to make. They only see a small part of the big picture of life.
One who wants to be led perfectly, must be led by God’s Holy Spirit. God will always make the perfect choice for one’s life.
The challenge with being led by God is that it does not always appear to make sense and it takes time to listen to God to hear what He wants done. Yet, it is those who are led by God, that are the children of God. They are living in God’s perfect will and desire.
As a believer, your life should be one that is characterized by the leading of the Holy Spirit. Before any decision or action is made, check with God. He knows what is best for your life. Allow Him to guide your every choice of action.
As you do this, you are living completely for God in His perfect will. You will be a child of God. This will allow you to do God’s will and keep away from sin.
Are you a child of God? Are you being led by God?
I pray today that you will know what God wants you to do; that you will hear God’s Spirit guiding you; that you will be a true child of God; and that God will use you to do His work on this earth.
