How Will I Know?

“When you think the Holy Spirit is leading you, look for
1. the witness of the Holy Spirit
2. the illumination of the Scripture
3. the confirmation of God’s hand in circumstances”
*Priscilla Shirer
It’s when the Holy Spirit’s speaking
Peace into your heart
As you have sought God’s will and have
Been wondering where to start,
And when His Word just comes alive
To reinforce the call,
That God is there to verify
That He is in it all.
And then when circumstances
Reinforce what you have heard –
God’s Spirit speaking peace as He
Illuminates His Word,
Then you will know it’s time to move,
As God has made it clear –
He has a plan. He’s calling you.
Will you have ears to hear?
And will your feet be swift to follow
As He leads the way?
Once you know it is God who speaks,
It’s time, then, to obey.
“When the Spirit of truth comes,
He will guide you into all the truth.”
John 16:13a HCSB
