As followers of Jesus, God designed us to grow in our relationship to Him. In fact, it is not natural for us to not grow in Christ. Are you growing? How’s your walk?
John 16:13 says, “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.” We have to trust in the Holy Spirit and His work in our lives. He guides us in our lives. Our job is to surrender to His work in our lives. He will live through us.
The Holy Spirit guides us into all the truth. Are we doing what the Holy Spirit has already shown us? In other words, is your obedience to God as great as what God has already shown you? If you’re not doing what God has already shown you, you know how to grow in your walk with God – obey what He’s already shown you! We can’t grow the way God intends if we aren’t following what God has already shown us. Ask God to show you how to let Him live out obedience to Him through you. Trust Him! He will do it.
Are you living out of God’s power (not your own)? Are you living out your surrender (surrender to God on a moment by moment basis)? You can’t live the Christian life in your own strength. Let go – listen and obey… God will do it!
