So much is disheartening in the news right now. I like to be informed so that I can better pray, but truth can be hard to pin down at times. Who can I trust to speak ONLY truth?!
I love my recent study on the Holy Spirit and His role available in my life. Jesus said after His Resurrection, (recorded in John 14-16) that He had to go away to the Father, but He was sending His Spirit to live in all believers.
The Spirit is described in the Amplified translation as: Comforter, advocate, Intercessor, Counselor, Strengthener and Standby (John 14:16) He is further mentioned as mediating between God and the believer like a lawyer acts in court. (Bible Knowledge Commentary)
He will guide you into ALL truth! (16:13) Jesus stated.
How incredible, how amazing, someone to help and guide me- a free source of absolute truth deposited inside!
This Spirit of Truth, sent from God in Jesus’ name, will teach (me) all things and remind (me) of everything Jesus said. (14:16)
Jesus promised the Spirit would also: stay forever (14:16), testifying of Him as the Messiah (15:26), and glorify Him (16:14).
How thankful I am, Father for Your Spirit that does so much – even convicting the world around me of sin, righteousness and judgement. You knew I needed power to find the Truth ❤️ Your mercy is great!
