There is one final step that Paul presents in Galatians 5 that helps us understand what it means to “walk by the Spirit” (Galatians 5:16). “If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit” (5:25). The principle that Paul is pointing to by using this phrase; “keep in step with the Spirit” means that you let Him conform your life by submitting to the way He leads you. The more we become sensitive to His presence in us, the more we will discern His promptings, cautions and instruction.
Since the Spirit lives in us, we must also understand the principle described in Chapter six. “Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up” (6:7–9).
If we sow to the Spirit, we will consciously seek His instruction and leading in daily living. The more we do this, the more He will answer our desire to know His guidance in us. The sowing to the flesh happens when we ignore the Spirit and shut out His voice in our hearts. I trust you are letting Him do speak to you in your quiet time with the Lord. He wants to influence your walk so it glorifies God in all things.
