The Holy Spirit Is Your Guide
JOHN 16:13 NLT 13 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.
Jesus never said the Holy Spirit would instantly tell you the whole truth on a subject, but He said the Holy Spirit would GUIDE us into all truth.
A guide is someone who helps you find something. For a guide to be of any benefit, you must be searching for something.
MATTHEW 7:7-8 NKJ 7 "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 "For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
If you don't seek answers -- don't expect to find them.
The greatest obstacle to learning is thinking you already know enough.
If you are satisfied with what you know, you will not be searching for more answers -- so you have no need of a Guide to help you.
Remember: truth sets you free (John 8:31-32). Lies keep you in bondage. So if you are not enjoying perfect freedom, seek more understanding of the truth.
The Holy Spirit is a perfect teacher. He guides us into the truths we are ready and able to receive. Then He patiently teaches us until we understand the lesson.
It is important to remember that guiding us into all truth is a process. Even when you have not realized it, the Holy Spirit has been at work in your life. He does not force knowledge on you, but when you are hungry for truth, He will guide you in the right direction.
SAY THIS: Jesus promised the Holy Spirit will guide me into all truth.
