SEEK GUIDANCE FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT
Thanks, be unto God that the Spirit gives us discernment. God’s Spirit gives us power, wisdom, and guidance for our every footstep. Pray for wisdom. Pray that the Spirit of God will lead you into all truth. It is such a blessing to be able to glean from wisdom imparted by the Holy Spirit. The scripture lesson for this devotion is in the Old Testament, the book of Leviticus 19:31.
“Do not defile yourselves by turning to mediums or to those who consult the spirits of the dead. I am the Lord your God.”
There is a warning in this passage of scripture about relying on false and dead spirits. God is the True Spirit. The Israelites are looking to false spirits. They should turn to God as the One True Spirit. God is the One who will guide and direct them. They need not look in any other direction than God. When they get to this new land by which they are journeying, they need to seek God’s guidance. This devotion is relevant to us. Unfortunately, there are many who seek guidance from soothsayers, palm readers and fortunetellers. All we need is to turn to God, the True God. It is by Him we live, move, and have our being. He is the one who will guide us through life. He is the One who knows where we are going and how to get there. He is the One who will guide us through life’s trials. Let us seek guidance from the Holy Spirit. May His Spirit hover over us and lead us under the shadow of His hand.
