The guidance to the Spirit of wisdom is expressed through three avenues, namely: voice of the Spirit, Teaching and instruction and the inner witness.
- VOICE OF THE SPIRIT
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. John 16:13
The Spirit of Wisdom is a speaking Spirit, you can hear Him. When he speaks to your heart, you can almost feel someone beside you was talking. His voice comes clear and strong leaving you to doubt nothing.
The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty Psalm 29:4
His speeches are not suggestions; he usually speaks authoritatively with affirmation from the Holy Scriptures.
While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee. Acts 10:19
- TEACHING AND INSTRUCTION
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. John14:26
Several troubled and confused souls have found light and direction by seating under some anointed teachings and receiving a prophetic word from God ordained vessels.
At a point in the history of Israel, there was chaos and destruction because there was no word of direction coming from the Lord.
Now for a long season Israel hath been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law. 2 Chronicles 15:3
I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. Psalm 32:8
- THE INNER WITNESS
Every child of God has a sensor in their spirit to receive what the Lord is saying to them. Just like a baby grows to know the voice of its parents, so a Christian perceives the voice his or her Heavenly Father.
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: Romans 8:16
The witness of the Holy Spirit in your spirit leaves you with a conviction and rightness about whatever the Lord is saying to you. You can actually see a green light or a red light as the case may be telling you go ahead or stop here. The witness of the Spirit is as clear as the peace and assurance you have about you being born again; you just know it, because God has said it to your heart.
