Rom 8:14 For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

EX. O.T. ISREAL FOLLOWING A CLOUD
Num. 9:15 now on the day that the tabernacle was erected the cloud covered the tabernacle, the tent of the testimony, and in the evening it was like the appearance of fire over the tabernacle, until
morning. 16 so it was continuously; the cloud would cover it by day, and the appearance of fire by night. 17 and whenever the cloud was lifted from over the tent, afterward the sons of israel would then set out; and in the place where the cloud settled down, there the sons of israel would camp. 18 at the command of the lord the sons of israel would set out, and at the command of the lord they would camp; as long as the cloud settled over the tabernacle, they remained camped. 19 even when the cloud lingered over the tabernacle for many days, the sons of israel would keep the lord’s charge and not set out. 20 if sometimes the cloud remained a few days over the tabernacle, according to the command of the lord they remained camped. then according to the command of the lord they set out. 21 if sometimes the cloud remained from evening until morning, when the cloud was lifted in the morning, they would move out; or if it remained in the daytime and at night, whenever the cloud was lifted, they would set out. 22 whether it was two days or a month or a year that the cloud lingered over the tabernacle, staying above it, the sons of israel remained camped and did not set out; but when it was lifted, they did set out.

WHEN JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED AND THE VEIL WAS TORN FROM TOP TO BOTTOM GOD MOVED OUT OF MAN MADE TEMPLES AND NOW HE DWELLS IN US WHO BELIEVE.

Acts 17:24 “The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands

1 Cor. 3:16 “Do you not know that you are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

1 Cor. 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?

1 JOHN 4:4 GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU!

Rom 8:11 but if the spirit of him who raised jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised christ jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his spirit who dwells in you.

ISRAEL FOLLOWED A CLOUD… WE FOLLOW A WITNESS.

Rom 8:16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. (RIGHT OF SONSHIP)

WALKING IN GODS PATHS
Amp eph. 2:10 for we are god’s [own] handiwork (his workmanship), recreated in christ jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which god predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which he prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which he prearranged and made ready for us to live].

GOD PRECEEDS HIS PEOPLE IN THE DIRECTION HE SENDS THEM. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS OUR GUIDE AND NO ONE CAN GUIDE US WITHOUT FIRST HAVING BEEN THERE.

Prov 4:18 But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,
That shines brighter and brighter until the full day.

Is. 48:17 Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way you should go.

Teach us to pray

Teach us to pray

Luke 11:1 It happened that while Jesus was praying in a certain place, after He had finished, one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray just as John also taught his disciples.” 2 And He said to them, “When you pray, say: ‘Father, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. 3 ‘Give us each day our daily bread.‘4 And forgive us our sins, For we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation.’” 5 Then He said to them, “Suppose one of you has a friend, and goes to him at midnight and says to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves; 6 for a friend of mine has come to me from a journey, and I have nothing to set before him’; 7 and from inside he answers and says, ‘Do not bother me; the door has already been shut and my children and I are in bed; I cannot get up and give you anything.’ 8 I tell you, even though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will get up and give him as much as he needs. 9 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it will be opened. 11 Now suppose one of you fathers is asked by his son for a fish; he will not give him a snake instead of a fish, will he? 12 Or if he is asked for an egg, he will not give him a scorpion, will he? 13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?”

Prayer is ALWAYS based on a relationship with God and His Word.

Prayer has to become heartfelt or it gets boring… Prov 4:23, James 5:16

Jeanie Wilkerson: “The only avenue of seeing God, hearing Him and touching him is by moving with him in prayer”

John 15: 1-8, 16

1 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 5 I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples.

16 You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you.

Fruit bearing is impossible apart from your ordained assignment….

2Tim. 3:15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

INFORMATION IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FAILURE AND SUCCESS.

YOU WILL NEVER HAVE ENOUGH INFORMATION TO MAKE THE BEST DECESIONS IN LIFE.

Jer. 10:23 O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.

Col 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.

HE IS THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM

Eccl. 8:5 Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man’s heart discerneth both time and judgment.

HE IS THE SPIRIT OF THE FEAR OF THE LORD,

Prov. 19:23 The fear of the lord leads to life, so that one may sleep satisfied, untouched by evil.

RECOGNIZING THE SPIRIT WITHIN
Nas john 16:13 “but when he, the spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own initiative, but whatever he hears, he will speak; and he will disclose to you what is to come.

Mess. trans. “he will take you by the hand and guide you into all the truth there is.

Nas john 14:16 “and i will ask the father, and he will give you another helper, that he may be with you forever; 17 that is the spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not behold him (perceive) or know him, but you know him because he abides with you, and will be in you.

1John 2:20 but you have an anointing from the holy one, and you all know. 21 i have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth.

1John 2:27 and as for you, the anointing which you received from him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as his anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in him.

John 17:17 “Sanctify them in the truth; Thy word is truth.

Psa. 119:105 thy word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.

The holy spirit will never lead you outside of the word of god. The leading will always agree with the word.

Psa. 43:3 o send out thy light and thy truth, let them lead me;
