{Sharing is Caring} A Call to Become Yourself: Eyes on the Guide

{Post 10 of 11}

But when the Spirit of truth comes, he will lead you into all truth. He will not speak his own words. He will speak only what he hears and will tell you what will happen in the future. (John 16:13)

You’ve found your purpose, heard confirmation from God, and now it’s time to take a step of faith towards your God-sized dream. Maybe you’re ready to run full-speed toward your destiny or maybe you’re apprehensively taking baby steps. Either way, my final nugget of advice is to Keep Your Eyes on the GuideWhen Jesus went to Heaven, He left His Holy Spirit with us. The Holy Spirit is our helper and we need Him if we want to become all we were created to be and do all we were created to do (Lead Me, Holy Spirit by Stormie Omartian, pg.27).
If you took a tour through the jungle of Africa, you would never wander off from your guide. Why? First, it’s unfamiliar territory. Secondly, you could become lost. And, thirdly, you could get killed. Life, especially our career life, is like the jungle in Africa. Wherever you are right now, you’ve never been there before. So, wandering off on your own can cause you become lost. And, while you might not be killed physically, walking away from God weakens us spiritually.
  • Quality of Life
We can live without the Holy Spirit, but we can’t live well. He knows who we are, where we’re going, and how to get us there. Apart from His leading, we will get off track and stay off track. Straying from the path might be inevitable, but not hearing the Holy Spirit directing us back is a mistake we can’t afford to make in our personal and entrepreneurial lives.
  • We can’t do it on our own.

Our God-Sized dream is called God-Sized for a reason. It’s bigger than us. It’s something we can’t accomplish on our own. The Holy Spirit gives us the power and strength we need in order to do what God calls us to do (Lead Me, Holy Spirit, pg. 42). But, without Him, that paralyzing fear of failure and that long fall of shame is bound to come.

 

  • Alignment
The Holy Spirit will always lead you into the will of God for your life. The way you live in God’s will is to walk with Him step-by-step and do what you know for sure is the will of God each day (Lead Me, Holy Spirit, pg. 72).
