Living in my spirit controlled by God’s Holy Spirit
God’s New Covenant teaching
Living in my spirit controlled by God’s Holy Spirit versus living in my flesh.
What are the evidences that the Holy Spirit is leading or communicating with my spirit?
The leading of the Spirit is described by mature Christians as a prompting, an impression, or an inspiration. The Bible describes it as receiving a desire, an inward witness or work of God (at the gut level) as to what His will is for me. Together with this awareness of what God wants me to do, a desire in my heart to actually do it, is also imparted by God to me.
Ps 37:4 Delight yourself also in the LORD (loving Him and His will), And He shall give you (place His desires in you to become) the desires of your heart.
1 Jo 5:10 He who believes (currently) in the Son of God has the witness in himself…
Phil 2:13 For it is God who works in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
The inward witness of God’s Spirit to my sprit directing my path is God’s still small voice. At all times God wants to tell me, in my heart, what I should do. But if I harden my heart as a result of sin, my spiritual ear becomes dull of hearing so that I won’t hear God’s voice.
1 Kings 19:12 …the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.
Isa 30:21 Your (spiritual) ears shall hear a word behind you (within you), saying, “This is the way, walk in it,”…
Heb 4:7 …”Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts.”
This is an inaudible voice to my natural ear, it is a living person within me communicating silently with my innermost being, one to whom I must constantly listen and always obey. It is very different from both a feeling in my human nature, or a head thought. God speaks to my heart, Satan speaks to my head. Can I choose to disobey God’s voice? Yes, He gave me a free will, but that is sin, and it immediately separates me from God and puts me back under the control of my human nature and exposed to Satan. If I love God who first loved me, why would I disobey, ever? This is the delightful Spirit led life of a true child of God.
