“To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.” John 10:3 (NKJV)
Don’t ever be so afraid of making a mistake you miss out on the joy of acting on the voice of the Lord. Instead, trust the leadership of the Holy Spirit and let Him show you how. He’ll begin by speaking to you about the little things in your life, and as you grow accustomed to hearing and obeying, He’ll speak to you about weightier matters.
This is the way it was for me in the beginning. When I first accepted Jesus as Lord, I didn’t have any idea how to hear God. My spirit wasn’t yet trained to distinguish His leading. But since the Bible promised I could do it, I began to approach my prayer time and Bible study expecting to hear God’s direction and He began to give it.
If you’ll trust Him, the Holy Spirit will bring you along one step at a time in a way that will help you, not hurt you.
Application For The Day:
The biggest mistake you can make is to be afraid to follow that inward witness which is the number one way God leads all His children (Romans 8:14). So don’t be afraid. Take time to listen today. Expect to hear in your spirit. God has something to say to you.
Prayer For The Day:
Father God, I thank You for leading me by Your Spirit every day of my life. Help me to develop an even greater desire to listen to You even more, in Jesus’ Name.
