And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago.
When we receive Christ we receive the Holy Spirit to come and live in us. One of the primary purposes of the Holy Spirit as our Helper is to be our guide. He leads us by bearing witness with our spirit. Learn to follow this inward witness. The Word of God reveals this is how God leads us. He does not lead us through outward circumstances, nor does He do so through our minds, but through our spirit man. Proverbs 20:27 tells us the spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord. This means God will enlighten us and guide us through our spirit. We should not be looking for guidance from God any other way. This inward witness will be a complete peace or an agitation within you spirit man. That peace is like a green light and the agitation is like a red light. Make sure the leading you sense is always in line with God’s Word for He will never lead us out of line with His Word for the Spirit and the Word agree. So learn to follow the inward witness of the Holy Spirit and He will help guide you into God’s will for your life.
