Being Led By the Impulses of the Holy Spirit

“As many us are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” Romans 8:14

The mature children of God are those who are moved by the impulses of the Holy Spirit.
A Christian once appealed to his fellows, “Please ask God to show you what he wants me to do, and when he does, tell me what it is.” We can understand his request but. all unintentionally, it was a violation of the New Testament. God makes no provision there for mediators between ourselves and Christ. We no longer look to men to tell us what we ought to do. The Lord, the indwelling Spirit, teaches us his will.

In Acts 21 we read that when Paul felt he should visit Jerusalem a number of people besought him not to do so, because of the serious trouble which was expected to befall him there. Yet he declined to reverse his decision. Why? Because in his inner being he had assurance regarding the Lord’s will. If we are truly walking with God, we dare not be governed by other people’s opinions. In Old Testament times people might consult the prophets, but not so today.
