Proverbs 20:27 NIV
“The human spirit is the lamp of the Lord that sheds light on one’s inmost being.”
As children of God we can expect to be led by the Spirit of God. What this means is God will enlighten us, He will guide us through our spirits. Many times we seek guidance by means other than the way God said. When we seek other ways we get into trouble.
We sometimes judge how God is leading by what our physical senses tell us. But nowhere does God say that He will guide us through our physical senses. Too often we look at things from a mental standpoint and endeavor to reason things out. But nowhere does it say God will guide us through our mentality.
The Bible does not say that the body nor the mind is the candle of the Lord. It says that the spirit of man is the candle of the Lord. God will guide us and enlighten us through our spirits. Now before we can understand how God does lead us and guide us through our spirits, we have to understand the nature of man. We need to understand that man is a spirit, that he has a soul, and he lives in a body.
