To walk in the spirit, is to allow yourself to be lead by the Holy Spirit, seeking His guidance in your daily life. A walk in the Bible refers to practical daily living. “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:25)
Have you ever gone out somewhere and you returned disappointed? Maybe you had an appointment, and it got canceled after you’ve already traveled?
Or maybe you trusted someone who scammed you? Maybe you invested a lot of money in a business that failed, or you experienced rejection somewhere?
Stacy can’t forget the year 2019. Her friend connected her to a “prophet” in another country. He had a WhatsApp group, and she joined it. This prophet “sells” cheap hair, and she desperately needed a business idea that will produce results.
She prayed about it, and she had a strong conviction that she would lose her money. She asked her friend just for confirmation, but she said all is well. Stacy went ahead and sent him about $200usd. And she never received her orders.
Walking in The Spirit
That is what happens when we are not walking in the Spirit. Walking in the Spirit is not for God, it is for us. This doesn’t mean the Holy Spirit is not interested in us. He is a personality, and He yearns to have a relationship with each of us personally.
Galatians 5:25- If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the same.
Ephesians 5:18- but be filled with the Spirit
Why does the Lord want us to walk by the Spirit and to be filled with Him? Because the Spirit of God is God, and without God, we can do nothing.
Also, walking in the spirit prevents us from fulfilling the desires of our flesh.
John 15: 5 I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me, you can do nothing.
Walking by the spirit is living your normal day-to-day life in the Spirit. That means living your life in the presence of the spirit of God continually and being conscious of Him in your life. Instead of doing your own thing, you talk to Him and listen. You involve Him.
Let Us Pray – Prayer to Walk in the Holy Spirit
Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus, let my mouth be filled with Your praise, and with Your glory all day. I have come to worship and adore You, my God, I kneel before You, my Maker.
Great are you Lord, and greatly to be praised. You are high and exalted. You are the mighty and awesome One. Your greatness is unsearchable.
One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts. I will proclaim the glorious splendor of Your Majesty. I will declare the wonder of your love.
You are gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger, and great in mercy. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
Oh, what a privilege to worship You, my God! You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. The birds of the air and the beasts of the field all depend on your provision.
You are righteous in all Your ways, gracious in all Your dealings with men. Lord, I worship You. You are God and there is none like You.
You are the Lord and there is none else besides You, neither is there any Rock like You my God.
My God, You cover Yourself with light as with a garment. You clothe Yourself with Majesty and splendor. You are light, your very nature is light.
Ah, my God! Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence?
2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.
Galatians 5:16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.
I Want To Listen To You
Holy Spirit of God, Spirit of the eternal God! What a privilege to be left under Your care! What a privilege to be your student and to have You as my Companion!
You listen to me when I need someone to be there. You comfort me in my troubles and remind me of Your promises.
I want to listen to You, Holy Spirit. I didn’t know you are a personality that wants to have a relationship with me. Today, I come before You Lord. Come Holy Spirit and walk with me.
Be with me in my going out and in my coming in. Be my guide in everything that I do. Let me walk by your active leading and guidance in the name of Jesus.
Ephesians 5:15-16 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.
Synchronize Me To Your Spirit
I put You to work in my life, Holy Spirit. You are my ears where I cannot hear, and my eyes where I cannot see. You look out for me!
Holy Spirit of God, you know all things, oh yes, even the deep things of God! Be my prayer partner as I partner with You, Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 2:10b For the Holy Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God— the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny.
Lord, when I am led by You in my daily life, I have victory over every enemy. Those who plot against me shall also be exposed because Your Spirit searches all things.
So, Lord, I pray that You synchronize me to the Holy Spirit. Synchronize me Lord to the movement of Your Spirit.
With Your Spirit, I will be spiritually updated. Nothing shall take me by surprise when I have Your Spirit actively working in me.
Colossians 1:10-11 So that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously.
Teach Me To Hear Your Voice
I am desperate for an active relationship with You. Come Holy Spirit and be my partner for life. Speak to me, and I will hear!
Teach me, and I will know. Walk with me and I will be guided, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Lord Your word says I know your voice, but it seems like I rarely know it. Lord, I pray that Your word is my reality in the name of Jesus.
Teach me Lord to hear your voice that I may follow and obey You.
May you also open my eyes that I may see what You want me to see. Lord, I pray for spiritual sensitivity.
Let me be sensitive to the movement of your Spirit, in the name of Jesus Christ. May I not miss your leading Lord. Help me to be aligned to your Spirit. In the name of Jesus Christ.
Remove Every Distraction
There are many distractions, sometimes I talk too much, sometimes I hear things I’m not supposed to hear, sometimes I spend time in places that drain my spiritual energy.
Sometimes my thoughts are not pure, sometimes I do not even read my Bible properly. But that is why You are God, and I need You.
Please align me to Your will and remove every distraction, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Also, purify my heart, and let the meditation of my heart be pleasing to You, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Today Lord, I wait on You. I wait on Your Spirit. I declare that I know Your voice and I walk in Your Spirit, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
