“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you”
                            John 14:16-17

Maintaining a constant connection with God is by regular fellowship with the Holy Spirit. It is by keeping a living connection with the Spirit of God.
It is the Holy Spirit that communicates God’s presence to us, He is the one that assures of the God’s abiding presence. The Spirit constantly give witness to God’s presence in us (John 14:16-17). So, when God says in Heb.13:5-6 , “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me,” it is the Holy Spirit that brings that scriptures home to us.
You know Lord Jesus assures us that He (the Spirit) will be with us forever by indwelling us and abiding with us. Hallelujah! That’s some good stuffs right there!! God will never leave you!!!
As a new creation, Christ now indwells us by His Spirit. Christ Jesus and the Father now tabernacles our spirits by the Holy Ghost. You see, you are never alone! And following the leadings and promptings of the Holy Spirit brings us into the fullness of all that God’s presence affords us. For example, Ps.16:11 says “In God’s presence is fulness of joy; at His right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” You see, when you stay in fellowship with the Holy Ghost, perpetually following His leadings and guidance, you won’t lack joy, because He will always communicate God’s presence to you.
It should be noted that the Spirit-led life is a life of conflict, because it is in constant combat with the old ways of the flesh that continue to seduce the believer. “For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law” Gal.5:17–18.
To be led by the Spirit is the same as walking by the Spirit. Gal. 5:16,25: “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulful the lust of the flesh”. “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit”. Only that asides, it carries additional emphasis on the leadership of the Spirit. We do not walk along with Him as an equal, but follow His leading as our sovereign, divine Guide. “For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God,” Paul says (Rom. 8:14). The converse is also true: Those who are sons of God are led by the Spirit of God.
Believers do not need to pray for the Spirit’s leading, because He is already doing that. Only our willingness and obedience to follow His leadings is the needful.
When Christ enters a person’s life, the Holy Spirit enters simultaneously (Rom. 8:9). And the moment He enters He begins to lead God’s newborn child in the way of freedom (Gal. 5:1), holiness (Gal. 5:16), Truth (John 16:13–15), fruitfulness in your spirit (Gal. 5:22–23), access to God in prayer (Eph. 2:18), assurance (Rom. 8:16), witnessing (Acts 1:8), and submissive joy (Eph. 5:18–21).
Beloved, the Spirit-led life is an assured life. A life sure of God’s presence and fullness. Be led by the Spirit!

PS: In the next issue on this series, we will consider how to be led by the Spirit. Till then, stay blessed.




“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you”. JOHN 16:13-15.

In the last days of our Lord Jesus on earth, He introduced the Holy Spirit to the disciples. He was intimating them to the role, advent and person of the Spirit. One of those was John 16:13-15. There, He made some striking remarks about the Holy Spirit.
Mentioned to us is that the Spirit of truth would guide us into all Truth. You see, the Spirit of God is the Spirit of truth, He’s the Spirit of reality. The knowledge of God, and access to spiritual realities are only obtainable in the Spirit. It’s only through the Holy Spirit divine knowledge can come to us.
1 Cor. 2:10- “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God”. This simply means without the Holy Spirit, we would be ignorant of what God wants us to know. The only thing that can counteract ignorance is truth. Ignorance will always and continue to prevail when the knowledge of the truth is absent, therefore, God gave His Spirit, the Spirit of truth, to the christian to void him of ignorance and bring him into the truth.
The Truth is the compendium of all the knowledge of God, the fullness of all God is, God does and God knows. And that is Jesus Christ.
Scriptures says in Him, (Christ), dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. {Col. 2:9}. Every virtue, authority, wisdom, knowledge and administration in God is epitomized in Christ, the Truth {Col.1:19, John 14:6}. The Holy Spirit therefore leads us into all the fullness of God, all of the knowledge of God, all of the realities of God. Isn’t that a blessed word there?!
We therefore can’t reach God, can’t access His truths for our lives, if we aren’t led by the Spirit. He guides us into all Truth. Beloved, you’ll continue to wallow in ignorance and grope in darkness as a believer if you’re not subjected to the guidance of the Spirit of Truth. The Holy Spirit will perpetually lead us to follow God’s will and to know God’s heart. We would never be default of divine realities if we are led.
Our theme verse went further in telling us that the Holy Spirit will not speak of Himself, but only what He receives, will He speak. Isn’t that amazing? The Holy Ghost would not testify of anything else, other than the truths He has received of Christ for us. The Spirit would lead us into knowing God, into His will, His voice, His presence, His knowledge, His fullness!
We can be guided rightly, led into truths, led into the blessed knowledge of God for our lives if we would yield to the promptings of the Spirit.
Yield to the Spirit, be led by the Spirit, be guided into truths!



“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God” Romans 8:14.

Been led by the Spirit is an exquisite reality of every child of God. All children of God characteristically receives leading from the Holy Spirit and one’s sonship in God is questionable if that is not obtainable.
A child of God, a christian, is one who receives influence, directions and persuasions from the Holy Spirit. The christian does not have any other source of influence other than the Spirit. Natural men might be influenced or led by their intellect, flesh or worldly wisdom & affiliations, but a christian isn’t. He is conducted and guided by the Spirit.
When we got saved and adopted into the family of God, the Holy Spirit was given to us as a Guide and Influencer. He begins to lead our affairs. The Spirit of God is influencing and all believers must submit to His influence. He always conducts and leads us in the will of God for our lives.
Following the leadings of the Spirit is walking in the perfect will of God. For only the Spirit knows the will of God. 1 Corinthians 2:11 says “for what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.” The Holy Spirit brings God’s will to us and brings us into God’s will.
The Gospels tells us how our Lord Jesus was led into the wilderness by the Spirit. Some translations used the word ‘drives’. “And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness” Mark 1:12. Imagine how a car owner drivers his car, that’s the way the Holy Spirit drives the believer. He drives us in His ways, not ours. No car tell its owner where it wants to go. The Spirit drives us into the will of God in all areas of our lives.
Is the Holy Spirit your driving force? Is He the own leading your motives and courses? Well, He must be if you’re a child of God.
Many christians falls into uncomely circumstances missing God’s will for their lives because the Holy Spirit isn’t their driver.
Romans 8:27 tells us the Spirit leds us in praying God’s will for our lives “…He maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.”
To discern, walk in, and fulfil God’s will for your life, you’ve got to be led by the Spirit.



“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light” 1 Peter 2:9.
“And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth” Rev.5:10.
There are three position that the Kingdom puts believers to function in on the earth.
Of course, a believer is the new man in Christ, the one who has been born again; he has come to believe in Jesus as the Son of God sent for the propitiation of his sins and confessed His Lordship over his life- glory to God! he’s a believer, he has been saved, cleansed and made new. The one man is gone with its nature and possibilities and another man after the nature of the God-kind of Life has emerged. That is newness in the spirit- the inward man.
Every man in Christ should function in one way or the other in these positions. These positions are;
•Functioning as kings,
•Functioning as priests, and
•Functioning prophetically.
Every believer walking in line with God’s purpose and plan will function in these positions in one dimension or the other.
The upper most in the heart of God for every believer is our kingdom growth.
God is looking for believers that will function in these roles on the earth and it is our level of growth that helps us to understand how to operate and use kingdom principles to influence our world as a king, priest and prophet.
In the kingdom, it is not Church attendance that changes us, but the revelation we receive. The revelation of Jesus and purpose helps us to function properly on the earth. The Church attendance is to give us a position where we can have access to the revelation.
Until we get a revelation, we can’t operate on the earth the way God want us to operate. When we get born again, we become priests and kings on the earth but it is the revelation we have that will enable us to operate at that level.
As a king, we should have dominion on the earth and enforce the will of God. As a priest, we should be able to have direct access to God. The world does not have access to God but we do. We should represent God to them. They can only know what God is saying, His will and instructions through us.
Like Peter, until he got the revelation, he did not have access to the level of authority Jesus spoke about. When he did not have the revelation, he denied Jesus. When he got that revelation, he preached on the day of Pentecost and 3000 souls were saved.
No matter how great what God has for us is, until we have the revelation we can’t operate at the level. We must stay in the place of prayer as God unfolds to our spirits the revelation of these realities and the wisdom to function in them.

“…Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness” (Romans 4:3).
There is a righteousness which is without the Law; that is the righteousness which is by the faith of Jesus Christ and it is credited to your account when you believe in Jesus.
This righteousness by faith excludes works, in other words, it’s not based on the works of the Law or your good actions. It’s not based on how good and nice you have been, but on faith. It has nothing to do with what you did and what you didn’t do, for it’s the result of what Christ has done.
Sadly, some Christians are still trying to be righteous, holy, and pleasing to God! They are struggling to be what they already are. They are trying to possess what God already says belongs to them. The Bible says, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1). That means you’re already righteous, hence, you don’t need to struggle to be righteous.
There are people who believe that their good works will answer for them in life. They think they rank highly with God because they don’t do anything wrong. The righteousness which is by faith doesn’t rely on your good works but on your faith in the God that justifies the ungodly (Romans 4:5).
I’m talking about the One that saved Rahab, the prostitute. All Rahab did was to believe in the God that justifies the ungodly and embrace the righteousness of God.
You may be reading this blog and you have committed many sins in your life. You have lied, cheated, done a lot of terrible things, and made a lot of mistakes. Well, you don’t need to cry, feel condemned, or keep brooding over all the wrong things you have done! We have a God that justifies the ungodly.
Just believe in Him! Believe in the cleansing power of the Blood of Jesus; that blood is still available today.
