The Holy Spirit comes as an extension to our common sense because sometimes your common sense will tell you “this is okay” but the Bible says there is a way that seems right to a man (i.e. to our common sense) but the end of it is perdition. Only the Holy Spirit can give us the knowledge of the end of a road, course of an action, choice or decision.
We all have to make some life changing decisions like the choice of a marriage partner. It is a risk, no doubt, but it is a safe risk if the Holy Spirit is involved in the choice. However, if the Holy Spirit is not involved, it is not a safe risk. Only God knows the man or woman that will do you good because our senses have their desires and tastes but when you are dealing with human beings, you need the help of the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit comes in when we enter the supernatural zones of life where the knowledge and ability of man becomes inadequate or irrelevant in dealing with what we face. Supernatural zones point to the supernatural world that pre-dates and controls the physical world we see. These are the God-zones of life. Make sure you never enter those zones of life without your Helper: the Holy Spirit.
Many Christians are not using all the resources available to them in the omniscience of the Holy Spirit and you must not be a part of them. Developing your sensitivity to the Holy Spirit pays eternal dividends.
Prayer: Holy Spirit, lead me in this life’s maze. Help me scale the heights where others fall; for I dare not climb without my Guide in Jesus’ name. Amen.
