“So don’t be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.”
Ephesians 5:17 HCSB
The desire of God for His children after salvation is that they walk in His will, which is, to propagate the same message we received to be saved. For the believer, his pursuit and purpose is well spelt out in the word of God.
In 2 Corinthians 5:18-20, Apostle Paul explains the purpose of the man in Christ. He is to witness Christ to the world and reconcile them to God. This is why God gave us His Spirit as a seal (Ephesians 1:13, 1 Corinthians 3:16).
The Spirit of God in the believer is committed to the propagation of the gospel of Christ. This is a mindset to have in walking in divine leading, to know that God’s Spirit leads us primarily for the purpose of God’s message. This was replete in the book of Acts (Acts 13:1-3, 16:6-7).
God’s Spirit was not necessarily given for our personal needs. We must therefore consecrate our lives to the message of Jesus. When our priorities are aligned with God’s priority, it is easier to recognize and walk in the leading of the Spirit.
Our minds must be filled with the thoughts of God’s plan, and we do this by praying in tongues.
When you make God’s plan and purpose your pursuit in place of presenting your plans to Him, you are consumed with His zeal, and you are much more receptive of His leading. You will find out that He will equally lead you in the natural things because He is also particularly interested in every area of your life.
