For a born again, Spirit filled saint, there is no substitute for the Holy Spirit. Do not listen to other saints. Do not look for answers in the Bible. Do not trust in your own understanding of Bible verses. If you do, you will be destroyed.
Sadly very few Christians are born again and have received the Holy Spirit. Most of those who have received the Holy Spirit never learn to follow and obey His guidance. The born again Spirit filled saint operates under guidance of the Holy Spirit. His wisdom and direction comes from the Holy Spirit.
The saint does not allow his fleshly desires and lusts to dominate his life. It is written: “So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh—13for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” Romans 8:12-14.
If we are serious about following Jesus we will set our minds on Him, seek Him, wait on Him and be led by the Holy Spirit.
May Jesus bless you.
