God's will is for each of us to be holy. The Holy Spirit provides direction so we may be victorious over the sin in our lives. The guidance of the Holy Spirit requires action on our part, but we must be on guard against driving every prompting or feeling we have as coming from the Holy Spirit. Circumstances, counsel and knowledge of the scriptures play a vital part in understanding when the Holy Spirit is leading us, and when our own desires are misguiding us.
1Finally, then, brothers,1 we ask and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God, just as you are doing, that you do so more and more.
