Leading and will are inseparable. If you’re being led, He knows you, and you know Him and are in His will.
Being led indicates someone leading you.
God’s leading is not a list of things, not even holy things from the Bible.
Lists are law and method, not relationship with Him.
We’re no longer under The Law.
In the Christian faith, relationship is all.
Without it, you cannot be led.
But relationship with God is not commonly taught, nor known in the church.
Not like a husband and wife who know the continual presence of the other.
It’s because of the answer to this question, “Where is Christ?”
Virtually all of the church thinks He’s only at the right-hand of The Father, Who is on His throne.
Jesus returns at the Second Coming, right?
Then He’s not here.
Can’t seem to have much of a relationship and therefore no leading.
It’s not that you haven’t heard some Christ in you verses, “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:27
It’s not that pastors haven’t quoted some.
But there is no real explanation of the relationship bought through Christ.
The common refrain is that The Holy Spirit is in you, but not The Father and The Son.
However, The Father and The Son have the familial names to which you are to relate.
Yet all leading is heaved on The Holy Spirit’s shoulders, though He is longing for you to know Christ.
Almost all preaching’s flood lamps are trained on the Holy Spirit, not Christ, The Preeminence of God.
And extremely little to none of the preaching also informs you that The Father is in you, though The Son craves for you to know your indwelling Father too.
You are hand-in-hand with The Lord as He leads you. He in you and you in Him.
Get to know Him.
You were made for Him.
Let the closest earthly relationships pale, in comparison to your relationship with Him.
Start relating to Him as The One closest to you in your life.
Talk to The Father, Son, and Spirit.
Include Them in everything you do, for They have made Their abode in and with you.
“Jesus answered him, If a man loves Me, he will keep My words: and My Father will love him, and We will come to him, and live with him.” John 14:23
Interestingly, the marriage section in Ephesians 5 is not ultimately talking about human marriage – it’s talking about your relationship with Christ! Whether you ever marry a spouse, each of us individually have been joined/married to Him.
“(21) Submit yourselves to each other [the church body of Christ] in the fear of God. (22) Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, as to the Lord. (23) For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the Head of the church: and He is the Savior of the body. (24) Therefore as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. (25) Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; (26) that He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word, (27) that He might present it to Himself a glorious church, having no spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish. (28) So men ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. (29) For no man ever yet hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, even as the Lord the church: (30) for we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones. (31) For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. (32) This is a great mystery [earthly marriage], but I am really speaking about Christ and the church. [This is as if God was saying through Paul, “This is first about you and Me (first individually & also corporately as the church).” Human marriage is a subset of our individual marriages to Him, and can be no better than your’s is to your spouse. Human marriage is reflective; if your relationship with your spouse isn’t good, neither is your relationship with Him.] (33) Nevertheless, let each individual one of you so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.” Ephesians 5:21-33
Additionally, general will directives can never be fulfilled, apart from a relationship with Christ. For example, you will never be able to walk the following verses without Him intimately walking in and with you and overcoming in you. You share Him being in everything. Your doing follows being one with Him. He did as He saw His Father doing. You also do as you see Him doing.
“(3) For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that you should abstain from fornication: (4) that everyone of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor; (5) not in lustful passion, even as the Gentiles who do not know God: (6) that no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because the Lord is The Avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.” 1 Thessalonians 4:3-6
