“For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure”. – Philippians 2:13 NKJV
The new life of the Believer is a story of changed desires and ambitions. In fact, the evidence of the influence of the Spirit in your daily choices is His leading.
In addition, God leads with His voice and with visions. He leads with clear instructions and promptings. Do you know that He also leads with a desire? He does!
Galatians 5:16 (NKJV) says, “Walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the desires of the flesh.” This is a leading of the Spirit – to do the things that are pleasing to God! His Spirit in us causes us to walk in His statutes and do His commandments (Ezekiel 36:27, Philippians 2:13)
Also, in Acts 18:5, we see God leading Paul to preach the Gospel simply with a “press in the spirit”. No extraordinary event occurred. He was opposed many times in this leading yet he was in the centre of the will of God. (Acts 16:6-7,8-23)
It is important for us to note that the slightest nudges, urges or desires in our heart by God is His leading. His Spirit will bear witness with your spirit.
In Acts 27:10, Paul perceived that the voyage he was on “will end with disaster and much loss, not only of the cargo and ship, but also” their lives.
His perception was later confirmed and clarified with additional information by an angel in verse 24.
It all started with a nudging and was later clarified by a vision. Isn’t that amazing?
The Spirit of God is with you everywhere you go and in everything you do. When you experience a check in your Spirit on what you should say or not say and what you should do or not do, that is God speaking to you!
God leads you in your daily decisions so trust Him to lead you in your career choices, marriage choice, in ministry work, with your family and in everything.
Do you know that your daily decisions have more impact on the trajectory of your future than seemingly ‘big’ decisions? His leading is available to you beyond the decision of whether to date Kola or Kunle. Don’t limit Him.
Be conscious of the leading of God in your everyday life. Trust Him to handle the seemingly big things.
