Holy Spirit Influenced 

Holy Spirit Influenced 

Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.  Ephesians 5:17–18

Who is my number-one influencer? Is it my wife? Is it a friend? Is it my mom, brother, or mentor? All of these are important and influential, but I desire the number-one influencer in my life to be the Holy Spirit. He is the one whose advice is always full of integrity. When I am Spirit led, I can be confident of an outcome that mirrors God’s will.

It is easy to be influenced by a culture whose standards are below what is best. For example, the world may whine and say it is old-fashioned to have boundaries with the opposite sex. But, as believers in Jesus, we know it is wise to keep emotional distance from someone who is not our spouse. Spirit-led living does not linger long around unwise activities.

Who is your number-one influencer? Perhaps it is a coach, colleague, or counselor who gives you good advice. All of these have their place, but never allow an individual to replace the Holy Spirit as your most-important influencer. Sometimes a friend will suggest one thing and God’s Spirit another. Go with God! His promptings are meant to triumph any attractive offer that may tease your emotions. Trust the Spirit’s leading.

“Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires” (Romans 8:5).

It may be hard for you to follow the influence of your heavenly Father because your earthly father may have abandoned his responsibilities. However, the Spirit of your Father in heaven is trustworthy and true. He never leaves you or forsakes you. His Holy Spirit is sensitive to exactly what you need, when you need it. He is reliable.

So, once you have confessed and repented of your sin, ask Him for the fullness of His Spirit to flood your soul. The Spirit of God flushes out the foolishness of the flesh and fills it with wisdom from the Lord. The Holy Spirit brings wholeness to your heart and truth to your head. Be intoxicated by the Spirit’s influence, and you will walk wisely.

“You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ” (Romans 8:9).

Prayer: Dear Lord, I surrender my soul, fill me with Your Spirit and power, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Application: Do I submit daily to the Holy Spirit’s control? How do I know when the Spirit leads me?

圣灵的影响

所以不要愚蠢,要明白主的旨意。不要醉酒,这会导致放荡。相反,被圣灵充满。以弗所书5:17-18

谁是我的头号影响者?是我的妻子吗?它是朋友吗?是我的妈妈,兄弟还是导师?所有这些都是重要的和有影响力的,但我希望我生命中头号影响者成为圣灵。他的建议总是充满诚信。当我被灵引导的时候,我可以对一个反映上帝意志的结果充满信心。

标准低于最佳标准的文化很容易受到影响。例如,世界可能会抱怨说,与异性有界限是过时的。但是,作为耶稣的信徒,我们知道与不是我们配偶的人保持情感距离是明智的。精神导向的生活不会长时间围绕着不明智的活动。

谁是你的头号影响者?也许这是一位教练,同事或顾问,他给了你很好的建议。所有这些都有自己的位置,但决不允许个人取代圣灵作为你最重要的影响者。有时朋友会提出一件事情,另一件事是上帝的灵。任天意走!他的提示是为了胜过任何有吸引力的提议,可能会挑逗你的情绪。相信灵魂的领先。

“那些根据罪恶性质而生活的人,他们的思想是关于大自然所渴望的;但那些按照圣灵生活的人,他们的思想是关于圣灵所渴望的“(罗马书8:5)。

你可能很难跟随你的天父的影响力,因为你的尘世父亲可能已经放弃了他的责任。然而,你们在天上的父的灵是可靠而真实的。他永远不会离开你或放弃你。当你需要时,他的圣灵对你所需要的东西很敏感。他很可靠。

所以,一旦你承认并悔改了自己的罪,请求祂充满祂的灵充满你的灵魂。上帝的灵冲走了肉体的愚昧,并用主的智慧充满了它。圣灵为你的头带来完整的内心和真理。被圣灵的影响所陶醉,你会明智地行事。

“然而,如果上帝的灵活在你内部,你就不是受罪恶的本性,而是受圣灵的控制。若有人没有基督的灵,就不属基督“(罗马书8:9)。

祷告:亲爱的主,我奉耶稣的名,阿们,以我的灵魂降服,充满我的灵和力量。

应用:我是否每天屈服于圣灵的控制?我怎么知道圣灵引导我的时间?
