Cooperating with the Holy Spirit

Read It

Because of God's lovingkindness and fidelity to His covenant, the Holy Spirit regenerates, sanctifies and indwells in all those who have a genuine faith in Jesus Christ and His work of atonement.

In bestowing His Helper, God provides the Holy Spirit as His teacher of how to be holy (John 14:26).

For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. (1 Cor 2:11-13)

As you seek to cooperate with the Holy Spirit by praying for His leading and listening for His voice, don't forget the surest way of receiving His direction and instruction - namely through Bible study and Scripture memory.

The words of the Bible are the words of God's Spirit.

This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success. (Josh 1:8)

In reading the Bible soundly and memorizing His words, you minimize the risk of listening to the wrong voices and abstracting the plain meaning of Holy Spirit's words.
