How God Leads Us

"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God" (Romans 8:14). Each and every believer may be led by the Holy Spirit. He lives in the heart of every true believer in Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9). The Lord will lead you in the right path day after day. The Bible teaches clearly how God leads us. 

All believers may be led by the fruit of the Holy Spirit. The fruit includes love, joy, and peace. "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace" (Galatians 5:22). These three words characterize any believer who is led by the Spirit.

The Holy Spirit leads you by love. When you follow Him, you love God and others. The Spirit of God leads you with joy. When you refuse to follow, joy evades you. The Spirit of God leads you with peace. It is "the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding" (Philippians 4:7).

The Holy Spirit will lead you daily. He will not force you to follow Him. However, there are only two choices. One is to follow the Holy Spirit. The other one is to go astray. Even when you go astray, the Holy Spirit is there to lead you back to the right way.

When you follow the Holy Spirit, you discover love, joy, and peace. When you don't follow, then you doubt God's love, forfeit real joy, and replace peace with confusion. The choice is clear. The results are predictable, when you are led by God.
