Arm yourself with the word of God and you will be equipped for your day. The Word of God is our life manual and the Holy Spirit is like having our own navigational system within us. It is that voice that says, make a right turn ahead or will keep you from making a wrong turn. Without it this we have a hard time staying on course. An example of following God’s word is illustrated in Numbers 22, the story about Balaam. Take time to read the whole chapter.
Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.
And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to withstand thee, because thy way is perverse before me:And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times: unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive. And Balaam said unto the angel of the LORD, I have sinned; for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore, if it displease thee, I will get me back again. Numbers 22:31-34
