So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. (Galatians 5:16 NLT)
Life can be difficult. You try to live a good life. You try to be kind to others. You try to do what is right. But things don’t always turn out the way you want them to. What’s missing? Paul says to let the Holy Spirit guide our lives. Jesus has promised the Holy Spirit to guide us and give us the strength we need. The key is to ask for the Holy Spirit’s guidance each day. We don’t eat once a week and expect to survive. We can’t survive spiritually if we don’t ask daily for the Holy Spirit to fill us. We need the power and strength to walk in the light of Christ. We can’t do it alone. I know, I have tried and it doesn’t work very well.
