So often we feel the leading of the Holy Spirit particularly with our mouths, but it can be any aspect of our lives. The Holy Spirit will prompt us and tell us that something we are about to do is not going to be good. We might say the Holy Spirit gives us a “yellow light.” The light is yellow and it is about to turn red and so often we say, “I can make it.” If the Holy Spirit gives us a “yellow light” and tells us to slow down then we must learn to listen to Him.This is very important because we must learn to enjoy the restraint of the Holy Spirit as much as we like the “leading” of the Holy Spirit.

When you first learn to drive, the first thing they show you on the car is the brake. This is very important because we must learn to enjoy the restraint of the Holy Spirit as much as we like the “leading” of the Holy Spirit. We have often said that in relationships if a person has a relationship with your “yes” but does not have a relationship with your “no,” then they really do not have a relationship with you at all. The same applies with the Holy Spirit. If we only have a relationship with the “yes” of the Holy Spirit, but we do not have a relationship with the “no,” then we do not have a relationship with the Holy Spirit at all.
Help us continue helping others!
