The Spirit Reminds us of scripture

JESUS SPEAKING

            “These things I have spoken to you while being present with you.  But the helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you” (John 14: 25-26.)

INSPIRED THOUGHTS

            The Holy Spirit is the indwelling of God within the heart of every believer.  It encourages, purifies, strengthens, and guides those who are faithful.  The Spirit also brings to remembrance all of the teachings of Jesus Christ; his words, his actions, and his example.  When God desires obedience or wishes to encourage us in some way, He often provides us with a scripture that applies directly to that particular situation (a scripture from the Old or New Testament.)  God has not left us as orphans; His Holy Spirit continues to teach and to instruct those who listen and are willing to learn.

            Some time ago, I received a substantial sum of money.  Although my mother is not completely destitute, she is certainly not wealthy either.  The Holy Spirit began to speak to my heart, continually reminding me of a single scripture; “Honor thy Father and Mother.”  The Lord desired that I help my mom with her daily living needs by sending her a portion of my increase.  After a short time of contemplation, I sent her a large sum of money.  Instantly, my mind experienced a wonderful peace, and my heart rejoiced within me; for I had been obedient to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

            Today, God is still guiding and directing those who believe; His Holy Spirit lives within the hearts and minds of the faithful; where it continually brings to remembrance the scriptures that pertain to each one of our particular circumstances.  If we are willing to learn, the Spirit will continue to strengthen us and lead us in to the paths of righteousness.  May we always be sensitive to the voice of God; may we constantly desire the instruction of the Holy Spirit; and may we make great efforts to do all things according to the will of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ.

            “Lord Heavenly Father, make Your home in us.  Give us Your Holy Spirit, that we may continually be reminded of the scriptures which will enable us to accomplish Your will.  Guide us, teach us, and lead us in to the paths of righteousness; may we always serve You and worthily magnify Your Holy name.  We love You Father, we praise You and we thank You, and we ask and pray all of these things in Jesus Christ’s name.  Amen.”  God bless all of you.
