“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future.” John 16:13
God’s love for us is demonstrated through many ways, but two of the most dynamic ways are first, the sending of His only Son, Jesus Christ, and secondly, the sending of the Comforter, teacher and guide, His precious Holy Spirit.
Life lived with the Spirit of Truth is indeed an exciting and rewarding life. The Holy Spirit has the awesome responsibility to lead and guide us into all truth. What is truth? God’s Word is truth. The Holy Spirit leads us into the truth of God’s Word and makes it real and practical to us. As He guides us in our daily reading and study of the Word, we get to know the heart of the Father.
In the world today, man’s wisdom is often used to understand God and His Word. This approach can never be accurate because of our sinful nature. Carnal minds cannot understand spiritual truths. Our only hope of true knowledge and understanding comes through the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth.
Today, open your heart to Him and let Him take you on a journey in the Word. I promise you that you will be amazed at what you will discover about God, His word and yourself. As He takes that which HE hears and makes it known to you, you will wonder why you did not do this before. Come on, start enjoying fellowship with the Spirit of Truth and embark on the journey of a transformed life.
God my Father, thank You for the gift of the Holy Spirit. Thank You for demonstrating Your love for us through Him. Precious Holy Spirit, thank You for being my Guide and my Counselor. Amen.
