"So don't you see that we don't owe this old do-it-yourself life one red cent. There's nothing in it for us, nothing at all. The best thing to do is give it a decent burial and get on with your new life. God's Spirit beckons. There are things to do and places to go!" (Rom 8:12-14 MSG) Every day is a new opportunity to for us to advance toward spiritual maturity. The Holy Spirit is our personal guide in help us to achieve that goal. We simply need to listen and follow His leading. Our old nature, of course, will always try to demand and command our attention, but where has that gotten us in the past? With open ears and willing hearts, follow the Holy Spirit's leading.
PRAYER: Lord, thank you for giving us the Holy Spirit who leads and guide us along the path to spiritual maturity. Help us to have open ears and willing hearts to follow His leading. Amen.
John 16:12-13. . . .But when the Friend comes, the Spirit of the Truth, he will take you by the hand and guide you into all the truth there is. He won't draw attention to himself but will make sense out of what is about to happen and, indeed, out of all that I have done and said.
