In the Oxford crew, you will see these men who are sweating and straining and their movements are incredibly synchronized as they pull the long oars through the water. What is interesting is that these men have their backs to the finish line. How do they pace themselves and how do they know when to sprint? The answer is simple they focus on the coxswain. He is the guy with a megaphone sitting at the end of the boat facing the crew. He is the only one who knows where the finish line is. So the men at the oars focus on him, listen to him, obey his commands, and count on him to coach them to the finish line. He will pace them, he will encourage them, and they trust in him implicitly to get them across the finish line in the strongest possible way. They are counting on the coxswain to enable them to finish strong. We must learn to do the same thing with Jesus Christ!We must learn to trust the leading of the Holy Spirit. Click To Tweet

Isaiah 30:21 (NKJV)
Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left.
John 16:13-14 (NKJV)
However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.
Romans 8:13-15 (NKJV)
For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”
