For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.—Romans 8:14
I have discovered that if I want to be happy and if I want to have an anointing on my life, then I must be obedient to the voice of God. I don't always have to know why God wants me to do something. I just need to know what He tells me to do—and then do it!
When our feelings run amuck, we need to keep them from running our lives. We need to submit our will to what God tells us to do through His Word to us. If we don't feel like going to church, we go anyway. If we don't feel like giving that hundred-dollar offering God told us to give, we do it anyway. If God tells us to give away items we feel like keeping, we give them away with joy.
"Walking in the Spirit" is a phrase that believers have used loosely in the past few decades. What it means to me is to hear God speak and do whatever He tells me to do. We can point our ﬁnger when we see that other people aren't obeying God, but all He wants from us is our own obedience.
