The majority of Christians are guided by their senses, or other sources rather than by the Holy Spirit. Some have the attitude: "If it feels good, do it." They will depend on what their friends say, or the news media, rather than depend on the Word of God, or the direction of the Holy Spirit.
Often people will hear bad news from their doctor and feel that there is no hope. The Holy Spirit wants to tell you that He is able to cause changes to take place in your life, regardless of how hopeless the situation looks. Don’t allow a spirit of fear to control you, failing to look at the promises of God, then the Holy Spirit is unable to do anything for you.
Sometimes the Holy Spirit may want you to change a habit, or lifestyle so that you will be better able to hear and obey His instructions. Remember He is sent by God to help you.
Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
