For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. Romans 8:14‭, ‬16‭, ‬26 NIV

As Christ’s disciple, you cannot live the Christian life without the guidance and the empowering grace of the Holy Spirit. The primary proof that you are a Christian is that you are consistently led by the Holy Spirit and not by your selfish interests and desires.

To be led by the Holy Spirit involves progressively putting to death the sinful appetites of your human nature which has been crucified when you first gave your life to Jesus. The more fully you are being continually led by the Holy Spirit, the more completely you will be obedient to God and be conformed to His holy standards.

Likewise, your prayers can be self-centered and far below God’s purposes except for the Holy Spirit who who alone searches the mind of God even the deep things of God and leading you to ask for things God desires to accomplish in you at every given time.

As you set out this new day and as you enter into the last weekend of this month of March may the Lord help you to surrender fully to the Spirit’s leading that you may become progressively more like Jesus Christ and enter into the fullness of His predetermined plans for your life without stress and at no cost for you in Jesus’ name. Good morning.

Your brother,
