(Romans 8:14 KJV) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. The emphasis of the word led here and sons/daughters is something to look out for. At first when we’re born again we are all children of God. Because we were never born as men but first as children and then we begin to grow in the spirit. But here the bible talk about sons not children. You might have a male child who can also be referred to as your son but this is different. The gap between a child and a son is the maturity to receive instruction which is being led by the spirit. You see, a child may neglect instruction because he lacks knowledge about the importance on that assignment but when you become a son your level of accountability and maturity increases. You can be a child that is carried, forced, coarse into doing things that will profit you spiritually but the moment you become a son you take responsibility to yield to leading by the spirit. Until you allow God to lead you, until you become yielded and obedient to the leading of the Spirit, until your interested in God’s ways and method of doing things you will NEVER attain some heights in life. The difference between Saul and David is that one was completely dependent on being led and the other was completely dependant on his mental strategy. The flesh is doomed and considered to fail even when It looks like success. Carring out things in the flesh can even make you a successful failure this is why you must be matured in the spirit enough to be attentive to God’s leading for your life. Psalms 23:1-3 is filled with the benefits of being led. David had an understanding that wisdom is profitable to direct and so therefore every instruction and directions is God leading you by wisdom and failure to obey those instruction is walking in complete foolishness. The question is this when you observe yourself, scan your life and check the track record of failures and errors you will notice that you where led by the flesh.

Galatians 4:1 KJV: Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; GNT: But now to continue—the son who will receive his father’s property is treated just like a slave while he is young, even though he really owns everything. Galatians 4:2 KJV: But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. GNT: While he is young, there are men who take care of him and manage his affairs until the time set by his father. God has plans for your life and destiny but until you subscribe to being led as a matured son you can never enjoy those inheritance. Let me ask you a question, if you have a car would you give it to your son that is 3 years old ? I mean why do we buy toy cars for children instead of real cars? When God opened my eyes to the importance of being led my life changed. I understood the difference between being trained and having difficulty in life. Some people are studying what isn’t in God’s agenda for their destiny in the university. Do you know what ? The most common thing people do is get an idea, think about strategies to get it working and then bring God into it by praying and asking God to take control. After sometime they may succeed because God is merciful and if God is also merciful in won’t succeed so that you can come back and seek His face for Him to correct you.

The divine design is seek ye first the kingdom. In the beginning is God. God is not something or someone you borrow when you have already created your own idea or path. He had a plan, an intention, a peculiar thing in mind when He was creating you. Even your height and complexion was factored into consideration. Just kneel down and humbly confess that you’ve been moving on your own without Him and ask Him to lead you in any direction that He pleases. I promise you He never fails. Its not seeking Him after all other things because all other things answer to Him and are attracted to Him and by Him. Too many Christians are dying and bleeding in pain because they are not being led. The fall played a huge part in this. Is either you’re led by God or you’re led by the flesh and guess what? The raw material used for creating the flesh is dust and that is Satan’s food.

(Genesis 3:14 KJV) And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: Please don’t let Satan lead you. Allow Jesus to lead you and your destiny will blossom. God bless you Amen.
