Title: Leading of the Spirit

Notes:

We can't be productive as believers if we don't understand the leading of the Spirit. We are living in a world of confusion and to avoid that confusion, you must know how to be led by the Spirit of God.

The leading of the Spirit is when God speaks to your heart. Your mind receives the message from your spirit and you implement it in your life.

Genesis 21:9-17 - You can't lead a productive life if you don't understand the leading of the spirit. You should be able to listen to the Lord. You need to develop your spirit to listen. The leading of the Lord will help you overcome times of despair. As a covenant child of God, God will always want to communicate with you.

Genesis 21:18-19 - Whenever there is a leading of God, there will be a provision. Any time there is not a direction of God in your life, you will wander about aimlessly. You will save yourself a lot of trouble when you learn to walk in the Spirit. The first step is you must be baptized with the Holy Ghost. Whenever the Lord is leading you, you will overcome everything coming against you. God will open your eyes to see. Don't allow your senses to lead you. You should not depend on your experiences alone.

2 Kings 6:15-17 - Anytime that you don't see the way God sees things, you will always ask "What should I do?" But when you understand the leading of God, you will know what to do. You must see beyond the circumstances. You will become fearful of things if you don't see beyond the ordinary. Fear is not of God. Fear comes from an absence of light. The servant could not see beyond the issue. Elisha was looking beyond his current circumstances. The leading of the Spirit is very vital. A believer can't exist outside of it. You need to be led by the Spirit. Your mind needs to be renewed to be led by the Spirit.

Romans 12:1-2 - When your mind is renewed, you will be able to overcome. Your mind needs to be renewed by the Word of God. Your heart and mind affect the leading of God.

Ephesians 1:17-18 - Your mind must be enlightened. Your mind needs to come to a place it comprehends the Will of God.

Genesis 41:1-8 - Your spirit becomes troubled when your mind does not understand the leading of the Spirit or supernatural directions. Pharaoh's mind was troubled because he didn't understand what the Spirit was saying.

Acts 10:9-14 - Your mind can hinder you to not follow the leading of the Spirit.

Acts 10:15-20 - If your mind is not renewed, it will resist in the leading of the Spirit. If you are convinced of the information in your mind, you will not listen to the spirit. You must renew/re-educate your mind. Peter was doubting the vision from God. The confusion was in his mind based on previous information given to him. What is in your mind will determine how you are led by the Spirit of God.

John 16:12 - Here Jesus is talking to the apostles. Your mind can not understand what the Lord will tell you if you do not yield to God. They could not hear the words the Lord had because of their hearts. God will not cause you to submit without your will. The state of your heart will determine your acceptance of the Word of God. Choose today the voice you are going to listen to. What are those things that dominate your heart and mind?

1 Corinthians 3:1-3 - Do not misuse your spiritual gifts. The information you have in your mind will determine how you function. In these verses, these are supposed to be mature people who walk in the Spirit. If your mind is not submitted to the Word of God, you will not experience spiritual growth. Milk = basic principles. You must develop yourself if you want to grow in the Spirit. It is your own responsibility to grow spiritually. If you are still walking in the flesh, you can not grow spiritually. We should not be walking based on feeling but on the leading of the Spirit.

Galatians 5:16 - It is our nature to walk in the spirit. We are partakers of the divine nature. Walk based on the Word.

John 6:63 - We need to walk in the Word. Believe in the reality of the Word of God. It is your responsibility. "I will understand the leading of God!" The will of God is not a mystery anymore. God speaks to us every day.

1 Corinthians 2:9-14 - When you have salvation, you have the total package. You have the leading of God. The leading of God is our nature. What is hindering it is our mind. Things should not take you unaware. You should be able to see the Will of God. Allow the Holy Ghost to lead your life. Listen to God. He wants to speak to us. You must discipline yourself. A believer is called to live a supernatural life. Flesh does not profit in the things of the Spirit.. Your spirit needs to comprehend the leading of the Spirit. "I walk in the favor of God! I am not confused!" (say it with us!) You can't overcome if you don't walk in the Spirit. Don't just be a Sunday believer. Have the fullness of God. You are the house of God. The things of God can only be known spiritually.

Things of the Spirit are spiritually discerned. You can not get them through the world. What can you do? First, you need to pray. Prayer is vital. Pray without ceasing. Second, you must give yourself to the leading of God. Give yourself to the reading of the Word.

Ephesians 1:17-18 - Understand the Word of God, this is the revelation. Let your understanding be opened. If you have already made up your mind, you cannot be led.

Ephesians 3:1-4 - You must read the Word. Prayer is good, but if you don't read the Word, you won't understand. You can't be a victorious Christian by being lazy. "I will understand when I read!"

Let the Spirit lead you and you will overcome.
