Scripture of meditation:
• Romans 4:21
Every child of God must practice being intentional, when it comes to following God. Then it’s easy to be led by the Spirit.
Jesus said :
“It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life.”
John 6:63 AMPC
Question: “how does the Spirit of God gives life to a situation that looks dead?”
Answer: He does it when you intentionally or purposefully practice what is being said to you from the discourse of God’s Word.
A great example was Abraham who was 99 years of age and his wife 90 years, could still be pregnant and give birth to a child.
The word of God says:
“As it is written, I have made you the father of many nations. [He was appointed our father] in the sight of God in Whom he believed, Who gives life to the dead and speaks of the nonexistent things that [He has foretold and promised] as if they [already] existed. [Gen. 17:5.] [For Abraham, human reason for] hope being gone, hoped in faith that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been promised, So [numberless] shall your descendants be. [Gen. 15:5.] He did not weaken in faith when he considered the [utter] impotence of his own body, which was as good as dead because he was about a hundred years old, or [when he considered] the barrenness of Sarah’s [deadened] womb. [Gen. 17:17; 18:11.] No unbelief or distrust made him waver (doubtingly question) concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God, Fully satisfied and assured that God was able and mighty to keep His word and to do what He had promised.”
Romans 4:17-21 AMPC
As Abraham intentionally practiced God’s Word trusting God; the deadness in Sarah’s womb became fruitful by the Word and she conceived and gave birth to Isaac.
Being led by the Spirit is looking away from your circumstances and look unto God for the performance of that which He has spoken.
That is why Jesus said: “… the Words that I speak unto you they are Spirit and life.”
Remember: being led by the Spirit requires you to intentionally practice what He tells you from the Logos (discourse).
Look unto Jesus and look away from your present circumstances and intentionally practice what He tells you.
Many blessings in Jesus’ Name.
