There are many voices and many influences in this world, and some of them can be strong. The devil is pushy and is constantly trying to mislead you. But the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth, and if you’ll be led by Him, He will lead you right out of confusion into glorious light. He will lead you out of sickness into health. He will lead you out of debt into freedom, out of lack into prosperity. And He will lead you out of death into life!
Our decisions are important. They are like forks in the road. But we don’t have to make decisions on our own, because the One inside of us knows the past, present, and future, and He will tell us which way to go and what to do.
Every child of God can be led by the Holy Spirit, bearing witness with their spirit, day in and day out. He desires to help us, and when we understand how much He cares, we become convinced that He will use His great ability on our behalf.
Mark 16:17 "And these signs shall follow them that believe..."
God bears witness to His Word being spoken and acted on and lived by His people. The way He "signs" it is by what men call miracles and wonders, gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit.
The miracles we read about in the Book of Acts belong to us, the church, today just like it belonged to them.
In this series, we're talking about miracles: feeding on them, camping on them, and reading about them. The Lord is preparing us, getting our thinking right, and getting us open and ready - for Miracles Now!
We can live the same kind of glorious, Holy Spirit-led life as they did in the book of Acts - aware of the Person of the Holy Spirit, and aware of His leading, dealing, and teaching. When we are led by Him, He prevents us from making mistakes. We'll be at the right place at the right time. We'll know the right thing to say, and we'll make the right decisions, because we have the One inside of us Who knows everything about everything. And He is our Helper.
There is a natural level of life in which we live. But there is another, higher level of living, in which we're not led by our flesh, mind, other people, or circumstances. Rather, we're led divinely and supernaturally by the Greater One - the Mighty Holy Spirit. He is the Heavenly Gift sent to lead, enable, quicken, and empower us. As we learn to respect Him, recognize His leading, and respond to Him, He becomes more real to us, and we experience the Spirit-led life.
