How You Can be Led By The Spirit of God by Kenneth Hagin
"Have you ever asked yourself, was that me or was it God?" If so this book is for you.
In these times that we are living, where there are so many voices speaking, it is imperative for us to know whether its the leading of the Holy spirit, the flesh, the world or the enemy vying for our attention. This book is about helping you to focus on the Holy Spirit in every area of your life.
Perhaps the greatest challenge we face as Spirit-filled believers is learning to accurately distinguish the leading of the Holy spirit. Its not easy but it is necessary. To abide in the Lord and maintain and maintain a connection with Him, we must hear and obey Him
Proverbs 20:27 says 'The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly. If you are born again the Spirit of God is living and abiding in your spirit God will guide us through our spirits. However many times we seek guidance by other means and when we do that we get into trouble. This is the reason many Christians are up and down, they don't walk by their faith they walk by their feelings. We often judge how God is leading by what our physical senses tells us, but the word says He will guide us through our spirit. Romans 8:16 says "The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.
We relate to God because of who He is in us , not because of others, not because of our emotions, not because we feel saved, not because we have ascended to greatness through our intellect – but because of what He has done in us.
This book differentiates between the spirit and the soul and the various ways you can be led by the spirit. Be it by an inward witness, the inward voice or the voice of the Holy spirit.

The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.
And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)
The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.
- A Christian who loves to write about christian living, natural health and self improvement. I pray daily that the love and grace of God will be poured out through my life to others. I remind myself daily that whether or not I have "witnessed" I am still a witness in everything I do.
