The Leading of the Spirit

*He REMINDS, brings to our mind, remembrance, the things we heard or saw.
*He helps us REALIZE, helps us come to our senses, brings conviction, gives understanding.
*He REVEALS.

Romans 8:12-17. Matthew 16:16ff
Being LED by the Spirit means:
+To put to death by Him the works of flesh. Deny self. Take up cross.
+To pray in the Spirit in accordance to His witness with, and utterance, beyond utterance He gives to our spirits. Follow Christ. Listen to the Son.
......Help in weakness
......Prayer according to will of God
......Strength. Grace
......Listening
......Obeying

2Corinthians 3-4
Openness to Scripture, the veil removed.
God spoke face to face with Moses, but he had to keep a veil. The veil is still on the eyes of unrepentant people when they read the Scripture, but is removed when one turns to Jesus. A believer is open faced.
So, we with open faces, looking as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

THOUGHTS
The devil's thoughts are for TEMPTATION
The Spirit's thoughts are for EDIFICATION, SANCTIFICATION
