Being Fully Led By THE SPIRIT

There is no question that your mind can supply you with some good ideas but the problem is that your mind is restricted to the time continuum.  It cannot know what lies ahead.  As Paul wrote in Romans:

8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

This is such a simple sentence with such a great and powerful message.  When we are led by FATHER’S Spirit, we take on HIS Divine Intent of Love and HIS Plan for mankind.  We set aside any past priorities and at some point they become irrelevant in our lives.  You have compassion for people who were once your enemies and you now understand their plight.  FATHER places you in situations that need HIS intervention and you function as a vessel of honor on HIS behalf.

Paul writes in verse 21 “creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption” and the Sons are the first to shed this corruption as they walk and are fully led by HIS SPIRIT.  They are indeed the firstfruits sown in a world full of darkness and their light will shine brightly in the immense darkness of this hour.  Creation does groan for this time at hand and FATHER is not unwilling but has been patiently maturing HIS Sons to shine forth as the noonday.  Their arrival on the scene turns chaos into peace.

Great faith is required to make the transition from a would be Son to a mature, functioning Son.  That last little bit of the soul and flesh must be dealt with and abandoned as we move forth in THE SPIRIT.  The transition is uncharted territory and we must not let fear rise up just before we take that fateful step into HIS realm.

26 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.

27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

FATHER’S SPIRIT compensates for our weaknesses and we are no longer hindered by how to pray for HIS SPIRIT takes front and center in the process of intercession.  We need not rely or trust in our mind’s ability to pray, predict, project or any other process for FATHER’S perfect Will and plan will flow to us and through us to the benefit and blessing of all mankind.

It is not business as usual.  What has worked in the past will not work in the future.  “This is the way we have always done it” will be replaced by “FATHER, according to YOUR Will, we will move forth.”  The world is coming to a point where it has exhausted its mental prowess to guide it through circumstances.  Men just do not know what they are doing and where they are taking those who follow them.  They are the blind leading the blind and they are headed for the ditch and it is only a matter of time before they fall in.

On the other hand consider what FATHER says about the Sons:

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

When we lay aside every weight that would easily beset us, we will then truly know that all things are working together for we are walking out HIS Purpose.  The fact that you are reading these words would indicate your focus on being one of the Called Out Ones.  It is not by chance but by HIS Purpose that you are drawn to HIS SPIRIT in the time of preparation.

There will soon come a point where you must exercise great faith and trust IN HIM.  You must leave the boat and step out, keeping your eyes on HIM.  HE will instruct you when to step out for HE is not interested in failure but full and complete success.  That day will come when you are fully led by THE SPIRIT.
