Exercise for Lesson 24
Walking in the Spirit: Head to Heart Guide
You have received guidance many times. Recognize and acknowledge what God has already been doing in your life. Don't be shy about admitting the truth that the Lord has been speaking to you and showing you things all along. You have been 'walking in the Spirit' much of your natural life, whenever your actions were graced and blessed with the Lord's peace.
Wise King Solomon advises us to learn to acknowledge Him - give Him credit for what He is already doing - and He will direct our paths. One meaning of this is that if we will learn to see the ways He has been guiding us since childhood (by Hand and Voice), we will be that much better prepared to recognize, acknowledge and follow Him in the future.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV
Mark this check list if you have encountered God in these ways, even without realizing it at the time, and then add some of your own to it.
