I am reading the biography of George Mueller. I am taking notes as I read the book. Our elders chose this book for the congregation to read, study and learn from the life of this man of faith.
To ascertain the Lords will we ought to use scriptural means. Prayer, the Word of God, and His Spirit should be united together. We should go to the Lord repeatedly in prayer, and ask Him to teach us by his Spirit through His Word. I say, by His Spirit through His Word. For if we should think that His Spirit led us to do so and so, and yet His Word is opposed to the step which we are going to take, we should be deceiving ourselves.
This is a quote from George Mueller. Whenever we want to find what God wants us to do, we should always look into the Word of God for answers. You should also pray to God for answers. God will speak to you through the Word of God.
Another thing if you say that the Holy Spirit leads you to do something and you look in the Bible and it says not to do that, than it is not the Lord who told you to do that!
