KEEP IN STEP WITH THE SPIRIT 

DAY 1- The Leading of the Holy Spirit

As believers, we've been given the Holy Spirit as a Helper, Teacher, Friend and Seal for the promised inheritance of eternal life with God. The Holy Spirit's presence, guidance and wisdom in our lives are the greatest gifts we could ever have. We have the most perfect guide to lead us through the twists, turns and challenges of this adventurous life. As children of God we are granted full access to the leadership of the Holy Spirit who dwells within us.
Read the following (perhaps twice, in different translations):

Prayerfully ask the Holy Spirit to reveal something to you from the passages and spend some time considering the following: 
In what areas of my life, right now, do I need leadership/guidance from the Holy Spirit?
How open am I to guidance from the Holy Spirit?
Remember, there are no right or wrong answers.

DAY 2 - The Holy Spirit and the Word

It is important we acknowledge that the Holy Spirit and the Word work together. One does not contradict the other. Both the Holy Spirit and the Word he inspired are vital in living the Christian life.

What areas of my life are in opposition to the Holy Spirit's leading?
How do these areas lead me away from the lifestyle of peace, joy and an intimate relationship with God through his word?
Remember, there are no right or wrong answers.

DAY 3 - Knowing The Holy Spirit

To help us follow the Holy Spirit toward the abundant life that is planned for us, we need to keep in step with him. Just as we get to know a person by spending time with them we need to spend time getting to know the Holy Spirit; what he is like, his personality, his voice and how his leadership feels.

What actions am I taking to develop my relationship with the Holy Spirit?
What actions can I add to help me get to know him better?
Remember, there are no right or wrong answers.

DAY 4 - Listening to The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is excited to tell us what he hears from our heavenly Father. He longs to tell us God's plans to love us, provide for us, heal us and transform us. He longs to lead us to the fullness of life available to us. To hear the Holy Spirit, we need to be listening.
