Merge Left”

As we were traveling this weekend I saw a sign that said: “Merge Left, 2 miles ahead”. Then a little later I saw another sign that said: “Merge Left, 1 mile ahead”. Then a little later another sign said: “Merge Left”. There was still a little more road and then finally you had to “Merge Left” or you would go off the road or hit the car next to you.
The Lord dropped two things in my heart about this. One We need to discern the signs of the times we are living in. There are some that can look outside and see the signs of what the weather is going to be, but not that we are in the last days. The signs are there.
Matthew 16:3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
The signs show:
We are in the last days.
The Harvest is ready – Go Forth
Be Ready – Have your lamp full
There are many scriptures I could put here on that subject, but the next thing He put in my heart was about the leading of the Holy Spirit. As we place our faith in what Jesus did at the Cross we receive the help of the Holy Spirit.

Luke 12:12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

He will teach you… He will led you… He will guide you…
As those signs give you direction so does the Holy Spirit as He leds you and guide you. He keeps you on the right road. He will show you the way to go. He points to Jesus. But unless you are listening, following, etc… you will miss the road you are to be on or you will go into a place you were not intended to be.

The Holy Spirit convicts you of your sin. Even before you commit the sin, He will lead you, “Merge Left, 2 miles ahead”. He will continue to remind you, “Merge Left, 1 mile ahead. As so on.

We must listen to the leading of the Holy Spirit and obey. Do not let your heart be harden to His leading.

John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Hebrews 3:7-9 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts…

1 Thessalonians 5:19 Quench not the Spirit. (To disobey is to quench the Spirit)

Ephesians 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God…

The Holy Spirit is our Guide. He shows us the way, but He also goes with us as helper. He influences us and aids us as we go. He leads us into truth, but this truth needs to be in our hearts, not just our heads. We can have all the head knowledge and still not hear the Holy Spirit. We must listen and obey His leading.

Here are some notes about the Holy Spirit from one of My Husband’s teaching. (these are not full notes, just part of the message)
When we place our faith in what Jesus did at the cross, that gives the Holy Spirit latitude to help us.
The Holy Spirit will not leave us. He is our helper. He holds us up. He makes intercession for us. He pleads on our behave. (Rom. 8:28) He teaches us about Jesus. He leads us to the Father.
The Holy Spirit is practical. He can warn us & prepare us to what is coming. The Holy Spirit is personal, available, adequate, dependable, & wise.
1 Cor. 2:14 The natural man can not receive the things of God, but the Holy Spirit helps us to receive & understand the word.
No one comes to Jesus unless the Holy Spirit draw him.
The Holy Spirit reveals our sin to us. He will show us things that do no belong in our lives.
The Holy Spirit will remind us of the faithfulness of God.
People say that experience is the best teacher. The Holy is the best teacher. Sometimes your experience is deceptive & sometimes leads you away from God & what He wants for you.
The Holy Spirit gives us power to live like we are suppose to live. He will only work in the confines of what Jesus did at the cross. Our faith place in Jesus & what He did give us the power of the Help of the Holy Spirit to live.
These last days are hard & will get even harder. The bible says that men’s hearts will fail them for fear of the things they see happening on the earth.
We need the Help of the Holy Spirit. I encourage you to study and learn about the Holy Spirit and why you need His help. God has provided all we need to be over comers. Walk in Him, believe what was done for you and receive the help of the Holy Spirit.
