Guidance refers to the work of the Holy Spirit that helps us overcome sin and live according to the Spirit, rather than being controlled by our fleshly desires.
But how does the Holy Spirit guide us? One way is through the Word of God. As we read and study the Bible, the Holy Spirit illuminates the truth and helps us understand and apply it to our lives. He also speaks to us through the voice of other believers as they encourage and counsel us in our faith.
Another way the Holy Spirit guides us is through the promptings and leading we feel in our hearts and minds. As we seek to follow the Lord and be obedient to his will, the Holy Spirit guides us and directs us in the way we should go.
As we seek to be guided by the Holy Spirit, let us pray for his wisdom and direction. Let us also be diligent in reading the Word of God and seeking the counsel of other believers. May we be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit, and may we follow him with all of our hearts.
