At this point in my life, I don’t have time to miss my target goals by guessing and supposing; done with that! I want to be taken by the hand, and literally led to where I’m supposed to be at every pivotal juncture in my life’s journey. Now, when I said I wanted to be led, I didn’t mean with just anybody. Truth be told, this “anybody” person needs to be led, too. I want to be led by the One who custom designed the path that I should take; I’m talking about the omniscient Holy Spirit. The One who leads with precise precision; no mishaps, missteps, or wasted time. I want to reach my destinations, and accomplish all my remaining dreams; on time—every time.
Led by precise precision—can’t miss!
Before Jesus ascended to heaven, He promised all those who accepted Him as Savior, that the Holy Spirit would come to live inside of them. Even today, the Holy Spirit dwells in those who accept Christ. Though, it takes revelation knowledge to understand the awesome gift the Father has given to His children. Think about it, His Spirit, with all His power, wisdom, creativity, strength, and discernment, just to name a few attributes, abiding on the inside of every believer. Have you grasped what all that means? As for me, I’m still trying to take it all in; however, I am making tremendous progress.
How to get precisely from point A to point Z?
In John 16:7 (AMP), the Holy Spirit is described as: Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, and Standby. Everything that we’ll need in order to navigate through life successfully is living inside us—all the time. There’s no reason for us to be confused or afraid about anything when we have the Spirit of God willing to lead and protect us. He knows precisely who we should trust—or not; He knows precisely what we should say—or not say; He knows precisely what’s behind doors 1, 2, 3. . . He knows precisely where all the skeletons are buried, and who buried them.

I can see cause for us to rely on each of the Holy Spirit’s characteristics all day—every day.
- Which ones did you rely on yesterday?
- Which ones are you relying on today?
- If you didn’t rely on the Spirit, then who did you rely on?
Jesus didn’t promise us a life without tribulations (see John 16:33). The roads along our journey will have bumps here and there, splits and snares, dark creepy valleys paved with clawing demons, but the Holy Spirit is not moved by any of it. He’ll interpret and console our moans and groans, all the while fighting our battles. If we keep in step; listen and obey His instructions, He’ll get us to where He wants us to be—every time—on time—hitting every target with precise precision.
