Part 9: Guiding of the Holy Spirit

(This is part 9 of 10 parts in this class)


If you are yielded and sensitive to Him the Holy Spirit will be to you a companion who will continually guide you in the way of life. Jesus said,

When He, the Spirit of Truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth.

John 16:13 - NKJV


The Holy Spirit isn't a tourist guide. He doesn't stand off in front of you pointing the way. Rather - whenever you are ready and willing - the Holy Spirit gently takes you by the hand and prompts you to walk with Him while He shows you the way. His guiding is like the guiding a loving parent gives a small child on a Summer's day walk.

You have to let the Holy Spirit take you by the hand and guide you. You have to submit yourself to the gentle leading of the Holy Spirit. You have to become as a little child with the Holy Spirit, having the utmost confidence in His loving desire to bring nothing but good into your life.


One of the most helpful verses I know in learning to be prompted and guided by the Holy Spirit is found in Psalms. It expresses so well the need to have real sensitivity and yieldedness to Him. David wrote in Psalm 32,

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with my eye. Do not be like the horse or like the mule, which have no understanding, which must be harnessed with bit and bridle.

Psalm 32:8-9 - NKJV
