If a man chooses to be led of the Spirit, he will need to hear the voice of the Lord. I never seek the voice of God just for the sake of hearing His voice. I seek Him because I want to please Him and I don’t want to get off into the weeds.
Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
This is what this Scripture is saying: if you choose to be led of the Spirit, God will deal with you as if you are His son because you are. A good son listens to his Father and he does what the Father tells him. I don’t hear God’s voice as much as I sense His inward witness. Let me explain how the inward witness manifests, I just suddenly know something or I just know what to do. It’s kind of like a well trained horse, the horse knows what the rider wants before he tugs on the reigns. The closer we draw to our Lord and the more will we are to be led, the quicker we hear Him.
Psalm 26:2 Examine me O Lord, and prove me, try my reins and my heart.
In this Psalm, David is praying to the Lord and telling Him that he is ready and available to be instructed. I believe we should officially ask the Lord to lead us, don’t just assume that He will. We must give the Lord permission to lead and correct us, this is the prayer of submission David prayed. I think some Christians are afraid to let God lead them, they think He will lead them to do something that will make them uncomfortable.
Psalm 9:10 They that know your Name will put their trust in You, for you, Lord have not forsaken them that seek you.
David proved that we can trust the Lord, so he is encouraging us to allow Him to lead us through this life. If God tells you to do something you will benefit. God can see into the spirit realm, He can see what the devil is plotting and He can see the angels He dispatched to watch over us. When someone loves you as much as Jesus does you can put all your trust in Him.
Jeremiah 29:11 I know the thoughts that I think toward you saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you an expected end.
God knows what He thinks of us and He is making those thoughts known to us. He has already planned out our future and knows how it will end, with a peaceful settlement. Based on His promise we must not be moved by circumstances because they are all subject to change. Like Yogi Berra use to say, “it aint over till it’s over!” Jerry Savelle calls being led of the Spirit an adventure in faith. The more you commit to the Lord the more success you see, and the more success you see the more confident you become. After awhile you can’t imagine being led any other way, you crave it, you can’t live without Him. When God led Israel out of Egypt, He led them into a place where they had to trust Him for their sustenance. They never did trust Him, that whole generation wandered around in the wilderness until they died.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
