Knowing and following the Joyful Sound
Psa. 89:15; 1 Cor. 2:9-12; Rom. 8: 14
The joyful sound in Psalm 89:15 is the sound of the Holy Spirit. When you know it you will always walk in the salvation of God. Such people can never be trapped by the devil and he cannot take advantage of them. Every time the Holy Ghost leads a man, He leads him into joy ultimately. As a child of God, there are two important subjects you must master if you are going to make it in life and become all that God has ordained you to be. These subjects are how to be led by the Spirit of God and how to live by faith. In Romans 8: 14 the Bible says that as many as are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God.
That scripture passage did not say that Christians who do not know how to be led by the Spirit of God are not sons of God, but the full meaning of that passage is that, it is only those that are being led by the Spirit of God that will be full beneficiaries of the advantages of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus became all that He did because he submitted the leadership of His life to the Holy Spirit while He was here. As a matter of fact, the first thing that the Lord Jesus settled before He started His ministry was who was going to lead between Him and the Holy Spirit. The Bible says in Matthew 4 that He was led by the Holy Ghost into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. If Jesus our master conceded leadership to the Holy Spirit while He was here physically and you must do the same.
There is only password to access the things of God and that password is the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 2:9-12). God has kept every piece of information that will make you succeed in the custody of the Holy Ghost and you must develop a partnership with the Holy Spirit to get all that is needed for your journey on the earth. The Holy Spirit is your advantage in life. All that will put you over and above the enemy is in the Holy Ghost. If you are to depend on your brain you will be limited in life and the devil can always handle your brain. But your walk and relationship with the Holy Ghost will make all the difference in your life.
To know how to be led of the Holy Spirit is more important than a university degree. It is a very strong priority of God for your life if the devil will not defeat you in life. Never joke with it, find how the Holy Spirit wants to lead you and master it well. To make decisions that are continually right you must be led by the Holy Spirit. Not just for yourself but for your for your family and every one that your decision will affect. You must master the subject well and understand how the Holy Spirit communicates with you so that you will not be a victim.
You must train yourself to start listening to the Holy Spirit and also to recognize the voice of God. You have to discover how the Holy Spirit speaks to you; God has a pattern of relating with each person and you will need to find out how the Holy Spirit wants to lead you as a person. Your advantage among men is the Holy Spirit; and you, must maximize the advantage that God gives you in Him.
Prayer: Father, I pray that you will help me to know the voice of the Holy Spirit and help me to submit the leadership of my life to Him in Jesus name.
