Today our world seems to be more complex and it’s more challenging to live for God in the midst of so many facets of society. There’s such noise around us. There are more demands and expectations for our time than there were 30 years ago.
As women, today we are pulled in many directions. Society is changing. There are some things we can give in to, but we cannot compromise biblical principles.
It’s important to let all other voices quiet down so we can hear and obey God’s voice. We need to let God rule our schedules rather than allow everything else to push us around.
The only way you can become an effective woman of God is when you are willing to submit your life to the Lord in total control and obedience; and to allow His Spirit to control your life.
[adsenseyu1]The Holy Spirit is ready, willing and able to guide you through the challenges of your life. The plan that God has for you will only be accomplished in you through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Luke 1:34, "And Mary said to the angel, how can this be, since I have no husband?" That's a 'how' question. And the answer that God gave her to that question is the answer He gives to all the 'how' questions. And the angel said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you." The answer to every 'how' question is the Holy Spirit.
Every time you and I think we can devise an answer to those questions we have about God's plans for our lives apart from the Holy Spirit, we are again rejecting our God and we are again falling into a do-it-yourself salvation by works that brought us into our present predicament.
The Holy Spirit will help us in how to fulfill God's plan with our active cooperation.
The Holy Spirit will make God real in our lives.
None of us can do this Christ life without Christ's Spirit, honestly, we can't. We can read all the books and pray all the prayers the way they said we should pray, and meditate the way they said we should meditate but all those attempts are futile without God's Holy Spirit.
God's Beloved Daughter, the reason you came to Christ it is because you needed His Help. And He, being faithful, left you with His own personal Helper, the Holy Spirit. For you to have all that Jesus was crucified, you will have to be obedient to the leading of His Spirit.
Like Bible teacher Kay Arthur said, " God knows what each one of us is dealing with. He knows our pressures. He knows our conflicts. And He has made a provision for each and every one of them. That provision is Himself in the person of the Holy Spirit, indwelling us and empowering us to respond rightly".
Trust the Holy Spirit. Depend on Him - His guidance, lead and help. He will not let you down. Trust in the Spirit from whom all wisdom flows.
When we trust God's Spirit we move from useless works to God's finished works that will serve our generation and we will reap real fruit, God's fruit.
Every day can be an exciting adventure for a woman of God who knows the reality of being filled with the Holy Spirit and who lives constantly, moment by moment, under His gracious direction.
John 16:13, "When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth. For he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever He hears, He will speak and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you." Jesus says the Holy Spirit can be trusted, He won't glorify Himself, He won't draw your eyes to Himself, He will glorify me. He will not bear witness to Himself, but He will bear witness to me".
