Part 5: Borne along by God's Spirit

(This is part 5 of 10 parts in this class)


Every time you meditate on God's Word you have an opportunity to be Spirit led. You can look to be borne along and taught by the Holy Spirit as you read God's Word. It's important that you use this opportunity. A believer who accustoms himself to being Spirit led in his Word study time will readily accustom himself to being Spirit led in his decision making time.

You can be borne along by the Holy Spirit as the surfer is borne along. The Holy Spirit can pick you up from where you are and carry you forward to where you should be. He comes to bear you up and on to your destination when you give Him your co-operation.


You can surf in scripture under the power of the Spirit - riding where the Word has life for you. You can surf in life under the power of the Spirit - riding up above it all. You can begin in one place and allow the Holy Spirit to bear you along to another and then to another.

The holy men and women of God spoke in this way. They were borne along by the Holy Spirit.


Peter in his second epistle tells us,

For no prophecy ever originated because some man willed it, but men spoke from God who were borne along (moved and impelled) by the Holy Spirit.

2 Peter 1:21 - Amplified Bible


The men of God who gave us scripture spoke for the record as they were borne along or moved by the Holy Spirit. They knew when they were speaking by divine inspiration because they sensed the power of the Holy Spirit in their words moving them forward as they spoke.
