God wants to lead your life. In order to hear His voice, we need to know Him.
“My sheep hear my voice and voice of the stranger they shall not follow “ .
God leads us by His Spirit. In order to be led in our personal life, we have to find out the unknown will of God. First we need to be submitted to the known will of God. That is the Bible.
Submission to the Word ⁃ known will of God
In the new testament, commandment that covers all the law: Love God with all your heart, and your neighbour as yourself.
Law of God gives us understanding of who God is, His will, Truth, what is right, what is wrong and moral conduct.
In the old testament, commandments are Honor God 1-3 (no other God, not taking Lords name in vain, keep the Day of the Lord Holy). and 4-10 ( Honor parents, treat others with respects, do not steal, lie, kill and covet what’s someone’s else.)
Love God – does not mean a same thing for a natural person than a born again person who is filled with the Spirit. People will have wrong, limited, and even perverted by sin view of love and truth unless they read whole Bible and know God.
Obedience to Holy Ghost – unknown will of God
Those that are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God.
we need to be filled with Holy Ghost to hear the voice of God and to be led by His spirit.
The number one way how God leads us is by inward witness (Holy Ghost inside us).
- When you stand in the courts, Holy Ghost will give you in that moment what to say.
- When you walk you hear the voice behind you say : this is the way walk in it.
- Go in to all the world and preach Gospel , these signs shall follow…, So as we go with the Holy Ghost and He directs us.
Jesus talks of Holy Ghost as Paraclete
But the [a]Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you.
John 14: 26
Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves. But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin.
Romans 14:22-23 NKJV
Righteous shall live by faith
Not justified by law, but righteous shall live by faith.
Righteous shall live by faith but if he shrinks back my soul have no pleasure in him
And the LORD answered me: “Write the vision;
make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.
For still the vision awaits its appointed time;
it hastens to the end it will not lie.
If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.
Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him,
but the righteous shall live by his faith.
Habakkuk 2:2-4 ESV
