GUIDANCE FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT’S WISDOM!
Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. After they had come to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit did not permit them (Acts 16:6-7).
The Holy Spirit’s wisdom is the wisdom of God in life. Until we give room for the guidance of the Holy Spirit’s wisdom, we are bound to go astray in life. The Bible says in the opening text that now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. After they had come to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit did not permit them. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to have guidance from the Holy Spirit’s wisdom in life. Hence, the guidance from the Holy Spirit’s wisdom is absolutely the guidance of the Lord that leads one into success and breakthroughs in life forever.
The ministry belongs to God and not man in life. Anyone who wants to succeed in the ministry should learn to submit himself to the leadership of the Holy Spirit for guidance into all truth in life. That is why the Bible says in John 16:13, “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” Therefore, it is the guidance from the Holy Spirit’s wisdom that actually leads the Christian into the path of truth in life. A life that is devoid of the Holy Spirit’s wisdom is absolutely a life that can never come to the knowledge of God’s truth and wisdom in life forever.
The Holy Spirit is always with us in His infinite wisdom for guidance and direction in our lives and ministry. That is why we need to be very sensitive in the spirit for His guidance in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Isaiah 30:21, “Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it,’ whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.” In fact, the Holy Spirit whispers His guidance and leading into the spiritual ears of a Christian in life. Therefore, be guided by the Holy Spirit’s wisdom daily in order to overcome life’s challenges forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to be guided by the Holy Spirit’s wisdom in his life and ministry daily forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered (Romans 8:26).
