God’s divine direction is in important for a successful Christian living.
Holy Spirit directed Philip to travel through a desert so that he could meet and preach to a man who was yearning to learn about Jesus Christ.
The scripture reported,
“An angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, “Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is desert. So he arose and went. And behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge of all her treasury, and had come to Jerusalem to worship, was returning.
And sitting in his chariot, he was reading Isaiah the prophet. Then the Spirit said to Philip, “Go near and overtake this chariot” Philip obeyed the Holy Spirit and he preached to the traveler; the man gave his life to Jesus Christ, and was immediately baptized. (Acts 8:26-29 ).
Lesson on God’s Divine Direction
Holy Spirit is a guide to all Christians (which gives divine direction); any Christian who responds to his leadership will not fail in life and ministry.
The Spirit of God operates in diverse ways, and he can lead any Christian to carryout some unusual tasks.
However, the Holy Spirit would only guide anyone to please God, and he would never contradict bible principles!
Moreover, miracles happen when a Christian respond to the leadership of the Holy Spirit: People receive salvation, healing, faith, assurance, and other miracles.
Also, God rejoices whenever his children adequately respond to the leadership of his Spirit.
Hence, it can be concluded that there is no regret in heeding to the instructions and leaderships of the Holy Spirit.
It is a Win Win situation for all parties.
Devil is the only one who loses in the process!
Prayer for Discerning Spirit
Dear God, please teach me how to respond to leadership of the Holy Spirit.
Let me be prayerful and sensitive, so that I can understand every instruction that the Spirit offers.
Make me a sensitive servant that listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit, and make me an obedient servant that yields to his instructions.
Let my obedience benefit your kingdom. Let me never regret serving you, but help me to prosper in this life, and in heaven also.
For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
