"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me." (John 10:27)
Many people are in a dilemma today because they ignore the Holy Spirit. They make important life decisions, inadvertently ignoring His counsel. If you would follow His counsel in all things, your life would be stress-free, much more excellent and full of glory.
Having the Holy Spirit live in you is the greatest blessing of all. He's your advantage and the secret to a glorious and successful life. It's important that you recognize and take advantage of His presence and guidance.
Christ has been made unto you wisdom, so the Holy Spirit's voice is God's wisdom leading, instructing, and guiding you. Don't just live and do things aimlessly-- be led by Him.
"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."
Always listen for His counsel from within you; He speaks to us about life's issues through the Word. However, because His counsel and voice is never strong or harsh against us, many ignore Him to their detriment.
Practice listening to Him. He always wants to talk to you, and actually does, even more than you may want to hear His voice. He already gave you the Scripture, the complete message of the Gospel-- that's our instruction manual for life.
To hear Him, you have to become more acquainted with Him and be familiar with His voice through study and meditation on the Word. Remember, He's the author of the Holy Scriptures. Also, you must learn to respond to Him right away, and promptly too!
Blessed Father, you're my Wonderful Counselor, and I rely on You for counsel that puts me over at all times. Your perfect will is unveiled to me as I walk in the light of Your Word and fulfill my divine destiny, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
