Are we open to receive?

When I say “open to receive”, I am not just talking about being open to receive knowledge of the scriptures, but also, learning to hear the voice of the Spirit of God to lead you. From what I am hearing and gathering, there seems to be a “famine in the land”. Not only from hearing the “written word”, but the “spoken word”.

We must ask ourselves, “I’m I being led by the Spirit?” One of the Greek definitions for the word “led”, is “be open”. Are we? If we are “being led by the Spirit” we are “open” to receive. We are not a closed book. We must remain available and open to receive revelation. Not only revelation of His word, but revelation through His Spirit to us personally. If we are saying that we are “led by His Spirit”, then we will have testimony of what, where and how the Spirit has led us. There has to be fruit.

“But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law” (Gal. 5:18)

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God” (Rom. 8:14)

    Amen brother! It is really key. The more I go, the more I see how really important it is. If I’m not in the Spirit (in tune with God’s Spirit within me) and following the natural man, the kingdom of God cannot come through me. Nothing that is done, that is not of the Spirit, is not of much value when you consider that God is Spirit. His kingdom is spiritual and it operates only through His Spirit. No Spirit, no progression of His kingdom (point blank).
