Following the Spirit’s gentle leading
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 is one of the first verses I taught my son when we was very young.
“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” I’ve always thought John 16:13 was for BIG ideas and revelations. But I am learning it is for small details too…
I have been asking the LORD for several years to lead me by His Spirit and have had the desire to live by His spirit 100% of the time. This is risky… what if I get a prompt wrong?
I must be growing because He is beginning to lead me more often, prompting me in ways that prove themselves to be His guidance, even in the little things.…
One might say it is witchcraft but I think it is GOD:
Recently, I had an appointment with a person D to show a flat I rent out. The LORD told me he’d be 15 minutes late so to leave an extra long gap before the next appointment to follow after…. 3 days later, the day of the appointments, D was exactly 15 minutes late.
Yesterday, I had another viewing. I felt so strongly in my spirit that the person would not come. 10 minutes before the scheduled appointment, the person cancelled.
Last night I had a dream which I remember very clearly… I often dream but rarely remember or “hold onto the content”. I believe as a family Covid is going to infect or try to infect a child, who will, in turn infect others. There is no fear in this for we are all healthy and/or vaccinated/and or have already had the virus. BUT isolation is not helpful to living life, so I believe the LORD has shown me, that in order to protect us from having to self isolate, we need to be vigilant. I will share this with others in the family, and will take the lateral flow tests more frequently this week, to guard against infection and infecting others.
I believe we can live more and more by GOD’s Spirit. These times are tough. Let’s allow our Father to lead and guide us.
If He can share with me, He can share with any brother or sister in the Lord. May I encourage you to ASK Him, and if you have asked Him, wait upon Him, trust and yield to Him, allowing Him to reveal His timing, His schedule, His blessing.
In Jesus’ name,

You never have to be concered about—“This is risky… what if I get a prompt wrong?” God always watches over our decisions that we make by faith. He will make it right if I do not doubt, I will not be wrong. Why? Because God honors our faith and is pleased we stepped out on it. Faith always pleases the Father. He will not say to us, “what if.” This is a fear based snare to cause doubt, which is a lie. Doubt and fear have no place in kingdom living and are never from the Father.
We must step out, that is so true. If we did not step out initially, we would not have become born again!
