TO THE BIBLE: 1 John 2-21 NIV
“As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit-just as it has taught you, remain in him.”
Have you heard some people utter this statement: “The majority can’t be wrong”? Sounds like it’s true, but it’s not. For example, when the people in Noah’s day saw him building an ark, they thought he was out of his mind. “How can the world be destroyed by a flood; it’s not going to happen. You’re just wasting your time,” they mocked. Imagine if Noah had decided to follow the voice of the people, because of their numbers, instead of obeying God; he and his family would have been destroyed by the flood.
You see, it matters what you hear and who you follow in life. God doesn’t work by numbers or popular demand. He speaks in harmony with His Word. And as His child, He expects you to follow His Word and not what other people say. Moreover, He’s given you His Spirit to lead you aright. The Holy Spirit is your greatest friend and teacher; He’s the One who guides you into all reality and makes God’s presence real to you. So, the best thing you can do for yourself is to continually follow Him. No other personality in life is worth following but the Holy Spirit.
But to follow God, you’ve got to yield yourself to His Word and do what it says. It will help you learn to discern the voice of the Spirit from the voice of men. Then you’ll find yourself making the best decisions and right choices always. You’ll always do the right thing the first time, be at the right place at the right time and live an inspiring life.
Thank you Father for giving me the Holy Spirit to lead, instruct and guide me in every area of my life. As I yield myself to Him every day, my life is transformed from glory to glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
If there’s a decision you need to make concerning a particular thing, take some time out to pray in tongues and listen to what the Spirit of God says to you.
