The Holy Spirt never contradicts the Word of God!
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God” (2 Timothy 3:16)
How can know if a leading is truly from God?
When God tells us to write to this person or make an appointment with that person or give away so much money, to start this or stop that, or to share something, it doesn’t have to make sense to us. Some of the most important decisions you will ever make in your life will make no sense from a worldly perspective.
All leadings that come from God are consistent with God’s Word, the Bible. The surest way to test the source of a leading is to check it against Scriptures.
God’s leadings are usually consistent with the person He made you to be. God is purposeful; He wants to use you in the areas of the gifts and talents He gave you.
God’s leadings usually involve servanthood rather than being self-serving. He will call you to humble yourself, serve somebody, encourage somebody, or give something away.
God’s power is available to you when you come to Him in solitude, when you learn how to focus and center your heart, and be quiet before Him. Then you find that His leadings come through to you clearly, with little interference.
Set aside a half-hour each day (preferably in the morning) and be still with God. Use the time to reflect on the previous day, write out your prayers, and invite the Lord to speak to you.
O Holy Spirit, soul of my soul, I adore Thee. Enlighten, guide, strengthen, and console me. Tell me what I ought to do and command me to do it. I promise to accept everything you permit to happen to me. Only show me what is Thy will.

Blessing to be able to recognize the difference between God’s leadings and those from the enemy!

There is tremendous power in a testimony. “And they overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” – Revelations 12:11
