God has a perfect way of performing miracles and putting us in the path of our purpose. God will guide you through all of the pivoting and turns that life will hand you. When God is your guide, there is a natural understanding and Spirit-led foundation that is rooted in place. You do not have to intricately plan everything for yourself. Our plans will fail, but God’s plans will prevail until the end of time. Are you being led by the Holy Spirit? There is a flow that God has ordained over your life. What if we let God have complete control of the wheel? We can do our part by aligning our works with His will. We cannot control the opportunities, hard times, open and closed doors that happen throughout our lives. Maybe you are struggling with being led by God. Once you relinquish your worries and anxiety, only then will you find the freedom and peace that God desires for you.
What are you truly being guided by in your everyday life? Are you influenced by someone else’s decisions and choices? Are you simply choosing comfortability over your purpose? Being led by the Spirit will cause a shift in what is familiar to you. When you actively choose to follow what God says about you, it will not be easy. What you know and what God knows will become a battle ground within your soul. We want to stay in what is safe and secure; however, God will lead you where those things are not available. You will have to be ok with taking the path less known. You will have to learn to lead with your faith. The promise was never easy, but He is our covering throughout the wilderness. The Holy Spirit wants to empower you by giving you what is necessary to thrive. Let God guide you in all aspects and areas of your life.
Everything is planned in His perfect will. When you are fully being led by God, His provision will make room for you as you navigate through life. Maybe you have been leading with your own thoughts and feelings. Perhaps you have been showing up with your own tools and ideas. Maybe this season was made for you to lay down what you have been trying to build and maintain in your own merit. Letting go of what you have been handling yourself will become the climax of your story. What you have planned and fought through in your own strength is seeking to be anchored by the Holy Spirit. This is the point where God can gain full access to your heart. Grab hold onto the steadfast power of God. You do not have to carry the weight alone. His guidance is there for you to rest in. Whatever you are facing or in the process of dealing with—be still and know that He is God. Let His presence surround you. Being led by God will stretch and strengthen you. Let His guidance overtake and lead you in all that you do.
