Don’t Violate The Inward Witness
“And Paul and Silas passed through the territory of Phrygia and Galatia, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to proclaim the Word in [the province of] Asia. And when they had come opposite Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not permit them.”
Learn not to violate the leading of the Holy Spirit through the inward witness. It is your guarantee for your well-being and safety.
Let’s say you went somewhere or maybe as a student in the hostel, if someone offers you food to eat and you sense a check in your spirit not to eat the food, please do not eat it.
Do not allow the pressure of what people will say or think about you if you reject the offer to make you eat it. If you do, you have violated the leading of the Holy Spirit right there.
There are people who have violated the leading of the Holy Spirit that way and they fell sick. That was what the Holy Spirit was protecting them from but they did not know it.
If you find yourself suffering anything and you know it was because you violated the leading of the Holy Spirit in this way, I encourage you to pray and ask the Lord to forgive you of that act of disobedience and that thing you are suffering will stop. If it is sickness, you will be healed of it. That is how serious these things are.
Therefore, I encourage you not to violate the leading of the Holy Spirit in your life.
Dear Father, may my spiritual senses be augmented today to perceive the leading of the Spirit and Your divine guidance always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Doing the Word.
If you have violated the leading of the Holy Spirit to you in the past, ask the Lord to forgive you today.
