Follow what's in your heart. Do you have a strong passion to make a difference? Do you have a desire to let someone know God cares about them? Do you have a strong sense to pray for a particular project or person?
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God." ( Rom. 8:14, NKJV)
Ever taken a tour? Whether it's a rafting tour, factory tour or cave tour—it's nice to have an experienced guide, isn't it? In our "tour of life"—thank God—we have the ultimate, experienced tour guide: the Holy Spirit Himself. He is the Heart Guide!

The Holy Spirit wants to lead us into amazing, fruitful, faith adventures! He does that as we follow Him from our heart. Over the years, I have witnessed, experienced and observed one simple way to practice listening to my heart and being led by the Spirit.

It's these two simple words: Follow Love. When we identify the love, passion or compassion the Lord has put in our hearts and follow it—we are bound to take an amazing journey! When we are led by the Spirit and follow love, we will end up doing what we love, being with people we love and loving people we didn't think we could!

Have you ever noticed God's love filling your heart for someone or something? Have you ever found yourself thinking of a particular cause, mission or person—and "feeling" God's love, passion or compassion?

What should we do when that happens? Follow it! Follow what's in your heart. Do you have a strong passion to make a difference? Do you have a desire to let someone know God cares about them? Do you have a strong sense to pray for a particular project or person? Do you have a desire to bless others in some way? Maybe you find compassion welling up in your heart with the desire to write someone a note of encouragement or buy them a little gift. Do it! Follow the love, passion and compassion that is in your heart. Don't stand still. Start moving and follow your heart into action. As we follow love...from our hearts...the Lord will lead us into some amazing things!

Here's a great example: My sister, Rhonda, told me this story a few years ago. She was flying first class from Mexico City to Washington when the Lord put this love-filled idea in her heart: "Give your first class seat to someone." She was excited about this idea and began to "follow her heart." She started looking for "the person" God wanted her to give her seat to. After a few minutes, she saw an American soldier board the plane and in her heart she knew he was "the one."

The plane took off and Rhonda asked the flight attendant if she could give her first class seat to the soldier in coach. Permission was granted. Rhonda went back to the soldier and told him she wanted to give him her first class seat. To make a long story really short...what transpired over the next hour is amazing.

The entire airplane began to clap! As the soldier walked up to his first class seat, everyone was clapping and cheering. The entire airplane couldn't believe my sister had done such a thing. The flight attendants brought Rhonda fresh drinks, a nice lunch and gave her the royal treatment! They had never seen anyone give up a first class seat to anyone, ever. They told Rhonda that she had inspired the whole airplane!

Today, what fun, love-filled, supernatural thing does God want to do in and through you? Obey the Holy Spirit—your Heart Guide—by following His love!
This is the commandment, as you have heard from the beginning, that you continue to walk in love [guided by it and following it].
(2 John 6, AMP)
Say This: Father, help me to follow the love You put in my heart. Help me to walk in love, be guided by it and follow it. Thank You for the great Holy Spirit, my heart Guide! In Jesus' Name. Amen.
