    The Holy Spirit as Our Guide

    The Holy Spirit guides us through our own consciences and in other subtle ways. He doesn't speak with audible words.

    Romans 9:1
    9
    I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,

    Familiarity with God's Word
    In order to recognize the Spirit’s guidance we discern between our own thoughts and His leading. One of the most important ways to recognize the Holy Spirit’s guidance is to be familiar with God’s Word. The Bible is the ultimate source of wisdom about how we should live. Believers are told search the Scriptures, meditate on them, and commit them to memory.

    2 Timothy 3:16
    16
    All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

    Ephesians 6:17
    17
    And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

    The Word is the Sword of the Spirit
    The Spirit will use Scripture we hold in our hearts to speak to us to reveal God’s will for our lives; He will also bring specific Scriptures to mind at times when we need them most.

    John 16:12-14
    12
    I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

    John 14:26
    26
    But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

    Our Desire or from the Holy Spirit
    Knowledge of God’s Word helps us in discerning if our desires come from the Holy Spirit. We must test our desires and inclinations against Scripture. The Holy Spirit will never encourage us to do anything contrary to God’s Holy Word. If our urges conflict with the Bible, then it is not from the Holy Spirit and should be ignored.

    Experiencing the God of Joy: By centering our lives around Christ, we can experience true joy. "According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." —Philippians 1:21
