Being Led by the Holy Spirit

Being led by the Holy Spirit in every area of your life, especially your purpose, is where a lot of Believers draw the line. They simply are not interesting in doing what God says when it isn’t in line with their interests.

I honestly think this approach is rooted in fear, but trusting God is safe. He uses the Holy Spirit to guide, teach, and direct us, among other things. So, I figured it might help to shed some light on what obeying the Holy Spirit can look like.
