“The Holy Spirit can be with you always and guide you back to Him, but in order to enjoy the benefits of this holy gift, you must truly receive it, and then you must use it in your life.” The first 10 to 20 years of my adult life was done on my own terms. I didn't ask God to lead me or acknowledge that His Spirit was there to lead me. I didn't understand that if I yielded my will to God's Spirit that He would guide me into all truths. Well, for one thing, what I thought I knew turned out not to be right. My thoughts and truths misled me so many times. Once I discovered that the moment I accepted Christ in my life, the Spirit came with that acceptance, my life changed. You know that little voice that we like to call "Something told me?" Well, that something is the Holy Spirit. Think about all the times when you heard that voice say, "Turn around," or "Don't say it, " or "Stop" and you kept going. Do you remember the consequences? I do. Sometimes it wasn't pretty. Oh, if I had listened to the Spirit in me. A pastor told the story of a man who was packing for a trip. The Spirit said to him, "Wait five minutes before you leave home." He kept packing. Again, "Wait five minutes before you leave home." He said out loud, "No weapon formed against me can prosper." He was quoting Scripture. Huh! Anyway, he and his wife finally left home headed to the airport. En-route, a car hit them and totaled their car. His wife almost died. He discovered that day that the little voice in him was there to protect and guide him. He knows the way. Let Him lead.
