“The Holy Spirit is the best teacher.”
Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today – September 13, 2022
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. John 14:26
I love the tender heart of Jesus. I love how He loves people. I love how He loves us so much that He will never leave us alone. And, I love that before He went to the cross and ascended to heaven, He told His disciples something like this: “I’m going to give you a Helper to be with you who will never leave you, and He will guide you. He will remind you of what I’ve said, and He will be your counselor, advocate, and teacher.
What great compassion and what great love the Lord has that He didn’t say, “Well, that’s it. I’m going back to heaven. Now, you’re on your own.” Instead, He gave us His very presence through the Holy Spirit. And, how wonderful that we have an all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-wise teacher in Him!
When you aren’t sure which route to take, the Spirit is there to guide you. He is the best teacher.
When you don’t know the words to speak, He will show you what to say. He is the best teacher.
When you feel discouraged, the Spirit is there to reveal truth to you and give you the help you need to go on. He is the best teacher.
“He will guide you into all truth” (John 16:13).
How marvelous that the Spirit, full of truth, will share with you and me what He hears from Jesus. (John 16:14)
But what is it that often prevents us to from receiving life-giving teaching and truth from the Spirit?
It can be many things such as pride, or a lack of belief in the Lord’s love. But oftentimes it’s simply because of unbelief. We simply don’t take the Lord’s words to heart, that the Spirit is there for us, so we don’t seek Him. We’re simply not listening.
I recently spoke with a young man who is having some challenges in his personal and professional life. I encouraged him to seek the Lord for answers and that the Holy Spirit would guide him. The Lord said He would guide us into all truth. May we seek Him for the truth He promises! If we do not, what treasures we are forfeiting! Can you imagine what He wants to reveal to you?
I encourage you today . . . if you believe God still speaks as He says He does in His Word; if you believe He hasn’t forgotten you, and that He is ready to hear you, won’t you seek Him for His truth today? He is listening. He is ready to teach you.
The Holy Spirit is the best teacher.
“But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you” (John 16:7).
Lord, I will take you at your Word. You have said that the Holy Spirit will teach me, guide me, and be with me forever. Help me to seek truth through the Spirit that comes from God. Thank you for always being with me through the Spirit. Amen.
Take time today to ask the Lord to reveal His truth to you through the Spirit. Then, listen for Him to speak to you all throughout the day.
