If you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Galatians 5: 18

 

There is an order to the way that the entire world functions; the rules and the controlling principles were embedded into its genetic coding by God in order to prevent chaos from ruling. What matters most for people is where we align our hearts and our minds in order to receive the direction and guidance that we all need to successfully make it through this complex life that we live.

 

Once we have made a decision to leave behind the controlling influence of evil and turn our hearts toward God, we still need to take one more very important step. God designed a rule of law into Creation, and it will get us through the day with minimal missteps and wrong turns; however, the law demands perfection from us so very imperfect beings. Errors, mistakes, and wrong choices are inevitable when we choose to orient our moral compass toward the law.

 

The Lord offers us another choice, for He sent His Spirit to live in, among, and with us. We can choose to seek out a deep, personal, and powerful relationship with the Spirit of God that will profoundly change the way that we view life. When we seek to stay filled with the Spirit, our view of life and the vantage point from which we view it are changed; we gain a Heavenly perspective on life that allows us to live boldly, confidently, and in a form of freedom that does not exist outside of this intimate relationship with God. When I am filled with God’s Spirit, there is lightness and a buoyancy to my life that is without compare.
