RHAPSODY OF REALITIES BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME;
HE LEADS YOU THROUGH THE WORD;
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works
(2 Timothy 3:16-17).
Many people desire the leading of the Holy Spirit in their lives but don’t know how to yield themselves to Him. Do we yield ourselves by bowing our heads and kneeling down before Him? It’s good to yield to Him physically in reverence, but this won’t give the guidance and leading you desire. In yielding to the Holy Spirit, you must submit to His Word. You give yourself to what He tells you to do, and let the Word of God live through you. The Holy Spirit is the author of the Scriptures, and the way He leads is through the Word.
Those who don’t understand the Word of God can’t know and follow the real guidance of the Holy Spirit. Anyone who’s ignorant of God’s Word will fail most miserably. God said, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” (Hosea 4:6). He however recommends for you to “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2Timothy 2:15). As you study the Word, the leading of the Holy Spirit in your life will increase, for you’ll be able to recognize His voice.
The Word of God and the Spirit of God bear witness to Jesus as the Living Word. He said, “Search the scriptures…they are they which testify of me” (John5:39). He also said, “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me” (John 15:26).
The more you let the Word of God dominate your mind, your decisions, and your outlook on life, the more the Holy Spirit controls your life, and leads you from victory to victory.
