Follow God’s Leading

Hebrews 9:14
…how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

When a person is born again they receive a brand new spirit within them for they are cleansed of the old spirit man. The voice of our spirit is the conscience. That inward knowing deep down inside. When you are born again the conscience is therefore also cleansed because you have a new spirit. Our conscience, this inward knowing, is how God leads us, for the Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit man.

If we will learn to listen to this inward witness we can follow God’s leading for our lives. To do this we need to live in God’s Word for the Holy Spirit will always lead us in line with the Word of God. God’s Word is also one of the ways we nourish and strengthen our spirit man. Just as the natural body needs nourishment and exercise to stay healthy, our spirit man needs to be nourished and exercised as well.

There are many different exercises you can do to develop the body as there are different ways to exercise your spirit man. The best way to do so is to practice walking in the fruit of the spirit. Practice walking in love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. As you feed on the Word and practice the fruit of the spirit you can become more aware of your spirit man, and learn to know through your conscience God’s direction for your life.

Redeemed

Hebrews 9:12
Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.

By the blood of Jesus we have obtained His eternal redemption. Redemption means to be liberated from bondage. We have been redeemed from spiritual death, sickness and disease, poverty and lack. Redemption from spiritual death not only means that we have been liberated from the old sin nature and made a new creation, but we have also been liberated from identifying with that old nature.

Our identity (where we find our value and worth) no longer comes from the world but from God. Don’t base your worth on others opinions of you, nor on worldly status, but solely on who you now are as a child of God. We are also redeemed from all sickness and disease. Jesus bore our sickness and carried our pains, and by the stripes of Jesus we were healed. Jesus has paid the price for our healing.

We have also been liberated from poverty and lack, because once you are born again you are an heir of God and a joint heir with Jesus. God is our source and has promised to supply all our need. Psalm 107:2 tells us the redeemed of the Lord are to say so. Daily confess you have been redeemed (liberated) from spiritual death, sickness and disease, poverty and lack, for the Word of God teaches us that confession brings possession.

Hope & Faith In God

1 Peter 1:21
Through Him you believe in (adhere to, rely on) God, Who raised Him up from the dead and gave Him honor and glory, so that your faith and hope are [centered and rest] in God.

Because of what Jesus did to reunite our relationship with the Father, we should now rest our hope and our faith in Him. Hope is where we start for hope is a confident expectation of good. When we find out through the Word of God of the promises He has for us, those promises give us hope. That becomes our goal for we now know what God has provided for us.

This is where faith comes in, for faith then gives substance to what we hope for. Faith lays hold of the goal in our hearts, what became our hope, and it is by faith we obtain God’s promises. Faith is based on God’s Word and comes by hearing the Word of God proclaimed. We need to take God’s Word and begin to proclaim those promises as already ours to build our faith.

As we do scripture teaches us to no longer look at what is seen in the natural, but to look to what is not yet seen manifest, the Word of God. As we continue to walk by faith, calling those things which be not as though they were just as God Himself does (Romans 4:17), we can see those promises come to pass. This is how we keep our hope and faith centered in God.

Give Thanks Always

Hebrews 13:15
Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.

Giving thanks should be a part of the believers life everyday. Notice it says in this verse we are to continually offer thanks, even as a sacrifice of praise. It’s easy to thank God when things are going your way, but what about when you are facing difficult circumstances. It is in those times you need to thank God the most, when you don’t feel like giving thanks.

As scripture teaches us we walk by faith not by sight. Colossians 4:2 tells us we are to be vigilant in prayer with thanksgiving. We don’t thank God for the difficult circumstances, but for what He has done to help us overcome them. In all things, in every situation of life, we are to be thanking God for what He has done for us through Christ Jesus.

When believers lose their heart of gratitude they become bitter not better, and this will only rob you of what God has for your life. Don’t allow the enemy and circumstances in life to take from you the gratitude we should have for God and for all He has done. Continually thank God for what He has done for you through Christ Jesus, and you can see God bring you through to victory.
