Isaiah 30:21 NLT | “And you will hear a voice say, ‘This is the way; turn around and walk here.'”
Counsel from the Holy Spirit is life. It saves you a lot of trouble, and shows you which way to turn. The ways and plans of God are not usually obvious. So if you want to do God’s will or know what He expects from you, you have to prioritize listening to the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit knows the mind of the Father for you. He sees the end from the beginning and can counsel you accordingly. Taking your direction from the world around you will only lead to sorrow in the end. You may think you know enough per time to make the right decision. However, Proverbs 14:12 warns that what seems right to a man in the beginning doesn’t always end well.
May you be led by the Holy Spirit every moment of your life. May your choices come from His guidance. May you continually enjoy this blessing — the Holy Spirit — that makes rich and adds no sorrow.
