If we are willing to the surrender our self-serving desires and seek out God’s will for us and our lives we should begin by turning towards Jesus in prayer and open ourselves up to Him. When we do that we will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. This is our guide, this is that small voice telling us the right thing to do, especially when the right thing goes against the way of the world. Listening and then doing what God has intended for us will not be the easy route in many situations. Over time it can become more natural, it is at the beginning when change will be the most difficult…be persistent, be patient and trust the Lord. He is right there with you, every step of the way, every single day. Trust the guidance of the Holy Spirit, it is a gift from God that we may receive this spirit. Amen.
“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.”
2 Timothy 1:7
