As Christians we must be led by the spirit. There is so much in this world that is trying to steal our attention off of God. The devil wants more than anything to steal the word of God right out of people. In Mark 4:15 we see this, “And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts”. If the enemy can get them to put things before God then the battle is won. God wants his children to be led by him. We should be seeking God first, building in his word and making decisions off the Holy Ghost. Our spirit should bear witness with the Holy Spirit within us. That old saying talking about going with our “gut feeling” is really referring to the Holy Spirit within us. This is found in Proverbs 20:27, “The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly”. It is also found in John 7:38-39 “Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them. By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.” It talks about the Holy Ghost being in the center of our body. If something isn’t right and it grieves the spirit we will have red flags. We need to seek God and dig into prayer to receive our answers from God.
Spirit Led Christian T-Shirt
At Welcome to the Revival we have a Christian t-shirt that says Spirit Led on the front of it with a great graphic with it. This shirt refers to Romans 8:14, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” As a Christian, we are told by the scriptures that we can expect to be led by the Spirit of God. Boldly declare that you are led by the Spirit and not by your flesh, your senses, or anything other than the Holy Spirit. This Christian t-shirt is also a great way to start a conversation with someone. Whether that be a lost soul that needs Jesus or just firing up a fellow believer. As a Christian we should be putting God first and bringing souls into the kingdom of God. We should be after the eternal fruit and not things of this world that will not go with us when we go home to heaven. Yes God wants us blessed and he will fulfill the desires of our heart when we put him first. These blessings will run us down when we put God first and we will not even have to go after them. The same thing with signs, we do not need to be seeking signs but they will follow us believers when we follow Gods plan for our life. Let’s put God first and let him do the adding!
