Guided by the Spirit

1cor12.7TUE.001

I’ve shared frequently how much I appreciate having the Holy Spirit as my Guide, my Strength-giver, my Comfort-bringer, my Companion. But those are all “me” reasons. There’s a deeper reason why God gives an indwelling of the Holy Spirit–for others’ good. If we rely on the Holy Spirit’s guidance, we’re less likely to say or do hurtful things in a moment of frustration or anger. If we listen to His voice and heed it, we will be a better example of Jesus to those around us. Reflecting Him is always best for the Body of Christ and for the world in general. Lord, before I speak or react, let me seek You first so I do good rather than harm to those You love.
