Guided by the Spirit, Simeon entered the temple. (Luke 2:27)
Pastor John’s Notes:
When we are living by faith, we are in union with God through the Holy Spirit. Faith enables us to live in sync with the Spirit’s leading and in alignment with what he purposes. The Holy Spirit can then guide even our steps and bring us into moments He has prepared. This unity is both pleasing to God and delightful to us. It is a joy to know that God is so very near to us and has, in fact, taken up residence within our soul. His presence is always available for wisdom and direction. We can rely upon him moment by moment. Living this way is called “living by the Spirit,” and it is the right of all the children of God.
Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of your Holy Spirit. Teach me to walk by the Spirit each day. Let me pause throughout the day to seek your presence and guidance. Guide me moment by moment so that my life can be a result of your handiwork.
