"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God" (1 John 4:1a).

Homeschooling that is led and guided by the Holy Spirit proves to be the most successful. Prayerfully choosing curriculum, daily schedules, lesson plans, field trips, extracurricular activities, or even books used for reading or literature class allows God to influence your children's education. God is the best at customizing our children's education because He knows the future plans for each of their lives (Jeremiah 29:11).

God is also the best at customizing your daily spiritual lessons. He wants you to succeed in your walk with Him, as well as homeschooling. In order to make sure you are listening to the right advice, He tells you to test the spirits to find out whether or not they are of God. Anything that does not confess Jesus Christ is not from God (1 John 4:2-3). God will never lead you to do something or teach something contrary to the Word of God. He uses other mature Christians to guide and instruct you, as well as circumstances to point you in the right direction.

God's divine lessons are waiting for you today: "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things" (John 14:26a). The Lord is looking for those whose hearts are completely His (2 Chronicles 16:9a), so He can use them to bring glory to His name. If you desire a deeper walk with God, then start obeying His Word. In obedience, He will show you more of Himself to give you the most exciting life you could ever imagine. "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him" (John 14:21).

Father, thank You for sending the Holy Spirit to guide me. Speak to me today and fill me with Your Spirit. Show me how to live a life that will glorify Your name. In Jesus' name, Amen.
