How To Walk In The Spirit Everyday – 3 Simple Tips For You

Walking In The Spirit

As we spend time in our Christian journey, one of the things that happen is that we learn more and more how to hear the voice of the Lord in our hearts and to learn how to walk in the Spirit.

With hearing that voice, we become more willing and obedient to that voice. Moreover, with that obedience comes a purposeful walk with the Spirit’s direction.

I have found that there is one key to walking in the Spirit every day and it is located in Psalm 18

30 As for God, His way is perfect;
The word of the LORD is proven;
He is a shield to all who trust in Him.

The key to walking in the Spirit every day is found in 3 simple things. It is not hard. It is not complicated. However, it does take childlike faith.

3 Simple Things To Do To Walk In The Spirit Every Day

1. Father Knows Best

Our heavenly father is omniscient. That is a big word that means that He is all-knowing.
He knows the future, and He knows you.

Because of that knowledge, He knows what is best for you in the long run. Something may seem right at the moment or in the present, but He knows what is best for the future.
There was a time in my life where I was convinced I had found the right person to spend the rest of my life with.

On the outside, she had all the qualities and attributes I was looking for in a mate and as a partner in ministry.

What I didn’t know is that because of some tragic events in her life, she had become addicted to the attention that tragedy can bring to people. She had become addicted to being the focus of attention.

She had become what many men call a drama queen.

Along with that, she had a fear of the move of the Spirit. If things became a little messy or beyond reason in a church service, she would experience high anxiety.

God knew these things, but I did not.

He kept me from making a big mistake in my life. As I look back, (hindsight is 20/20), I can be thankful that God’s ways are perfect.

2. God’s Word Is Proven

I love this quote by John Wimber.

It is important to be biblically literate, but we must also be biblically obedient!

It is not enough to have a head knowledge of the Bible. We must put that knowledge to practice if we are going to be led by the Spirit.

The Spirit of God is going to lead you to do what is in God’s book.

That might mean doing some things that are uncomfortable for you. It might mean that once in a while you might be asked to do something that stretches your faith and your comfort zone.

That is part of the Spirit-led life.

A successful person in God’s view is one who walks daily in God’s Spirit and obeys His Word.

The only work we do on this earth that will remain eternally are those things done not by our self-effort but by the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the grace of God.

3. Trust The One Who Is Trustworthy

In the book of Proverbs, there is a very popular passage that I would like to share with you.

Proverbs 3:5-6
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
6 Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.

The key to walking daily in the Spirit is to trust God with all of our hearts and lean not on our understanding.

Every day we must trust what we are hearing from the Lord through His Word and the promptings of the Holy Spirit. When we act in faith upon His Word and His guidance, God will work through us both to will and do of His good pleasure.

Philippians 2:13

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.

An excellent example of this is when I started my first website.

I didn’t know anything about building a website, getting people to come to a site or the first thing about making it work with mobile devices. I was not even a terrific writer from a technical standpoint. (I still make grammar errors)

However, I knew that God was speaking to me to start publishing what was on my heart.
Three years later, I see the hand of God in what I then heard.

Thousands of people have come to Christ because I was willing to trust in the Lord and not lean to my understanding.

I am now ministering in the heart of Silicon Valley.

Father knew best.

God’s Word is and in my personal life was proven.

He was and is worth putting my trust in Him. God’s ways are higher than ours. Therefore, we must trust him and lean not to our understanding.

To help you learn how to walk in the Spirit, I took a quick look at my study Bible for some scriptures. Here are some verses for you to meditate upon.

Walk In The Spirit Scriptures

Galatians 5:25
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Galatians 5:16
[ Walking in the Spirit ] I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

Romans 8:1
[ Free from Indwelling Sin ] There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
