Consult With The Spirit

I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. (Psalm 32:8)

The Holy Spirit can tell you what to do in every situation for you to always win in life. Many are frustrated because they never consult with Him for help, guidance, or direction. They'd rather go to a relative or friend for help when they're in trouble. Sadly, those they meet for help only provide them counsel based on human  reasoning and sense knowledge; and that doesn't work!

Learn to consult with the Holy Spirit for answers.  Ask Him for guidance and direction concerning everything you do. When you face challenges that seem insurmountable, call on Him, and He'll tell you what to do; He'll give you strategies to employ. The great men and women we read about in Scriptures understood this truth, which was why they never took a major step until they had consulted with the Lord.

Joshua, for one, had to rely on the Holy Spirit to tell Him how to take over Jericho: "And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries? And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my Lord unto his servant?" (Joshua 5:13-14). The Captain of the Lord's host referred to above is the Holy Spirit. He gave Joshua a strategy no human thinking could have reasoned out. No human mind could have thought of bringing down those monstrous walls of Jericho just by blowing trumpets and having people shout praise God. But the Holy Ghost said so and it happened just that way. The Bible says, "By faith the walls of Jericho fell down..." (Hebrews 11:30).

Learn to trust the Holy Spirit; depend on Him at all times, for He's with you, and in you and for you! He'll teach you, lead you and guide you into victory in everything you do, if you'd only ask Him.

Dear Holy Spirit, thank you for leading me in the path of victory and success always. I know I'll never walk in darkness, confusion or uncertainty because you're my light. I love and appreciate you dearly, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
