For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. Romans 8:14
When The Lord Jesus Christ appeared to me He said something so profound that it has always lived fervently in my spirit.
He said “many say they are led by My Spirit but their hearts and minds are consumed by personal pride, self seeking and the cares of this life. To be led by my Spirit a Christian must always follow Me continuously”!
Colossians 3:1-2 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
When ever you take your eyes or heart off of The Lord Jesus Christ you have stopped following Him. You will then be wandering aimlessly and making many bad decisions in your life. Sheep will always follow their Shepherd. They know as long as they follow and see Him they are safe. He will faithfully feed and watchfully care for them always.
Psalm 23:1-4 Amplified Bible THE LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack. He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters. He refreshes and restores my life (my self); He leads me in the paths of righteousness [uprightness and right standing with Him–not for my earning it, but] for His name’s sake. Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me).
A life filled with a humble servants heart and Prayer, Praise and Thanksgiving will always keep your eyes and heart on the Great Shepherd. The Lord Jesus Christ will never leave or forsake you. Remember to be led by His Spirit you must take your eyes off yourself and continually follow Him.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Amplified Bible Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.
