He Guides Me

Many people wander through live, never quite figuring out what their assignment is, continually asking if they are in the ‘will of God’; some live in continual fear of being deceived and being lead astray; some live in a state of ‘am I saved?’ or  ‘will I make it to heaven’?

“…He will guide you into all truth… ” John 16:13

Many people wander through live, never quite figuring out what their assignment is, continually asking if they are in the ‘will of God’; some live in continual fear of being deceived and being lead astray; some live in a state of ‘am I saved?’ or  ‘will I make it to heaven’?

How can we live our daily lives with confidence knowing that we are making the right decisions for our lives and our family?  How can we navigate in a world that is full of opinions and ideas?  How can we function from our position as a son of God?

John 16:13 shows us that He is the Spirit of Truth.  He will guide us into all Truth, the whole, full Truth.  He speaks what He hears the Father say.  He will announce and declare to us things that are to come, things that will happen in the future.

If we understand the role of Holy Spirit in our lives we can live at rest.  We can live at rest because  Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth; this builds trust in us.  He is Truth!  He will not lead us in a lie or in ways that are not for our good.  What He hears the Father speak, He speaks to us.  When you understand the attributes and character of God, this is very powerful to grasp!

What He is speaking to us is coming out of the attributes and character of God.  He sees the beginning from the end, His thoughts towards us are good, His love for us is great, He cannot lie, He is full of justice, He is faithful, His Word cannot return void.  When we consider the source and authority behind what is being spoken to us, we can rest in His guiding.

Guide means to literally show the way.  The Holy Spirit was given to be our Guide, to show us the way, to be our leader and our guide.

When we seek out the counsel of the Holy Spirit daily, we walk with more confidence, hope, assurance and rest.  He loves to communicate with us.  He desires to talk with you and walk with you.   Read His Word, ask Him questions today, ask His opinion, ask Him to guide you, to help you make the right decisions.  He may quicken a verse to your mind, He may give you revelation about a verse, causing it to become a Rhema word to you.  He may speak to you in a still small voice, He may send someone along your path, or He may speak to you in a dream or a vision.  He wants to be involved in every area of your life.

Holy Spirit is the source of all Truth.  Seek Him daily. Delve into His Word and ask Him to guide you and show you the way.  He will never disappoint!

Reality or Truth?

truth-and-reality-hi

What is reality and what is truth? 

Sometimes I think we get confused and lump them both together.  If this is really happening, if this is how I am feeling then this must be truth.  But I have discovered that this is not the case. There is a BIG difference between reality and truth.   The definition of reality is ‘the state of things as they actually exist.’   The acceptance of reality is acknowledging the state that we are in.

Sadly many people stay in this state.  They have acknowledged and accepted that reality and that’s where they stay.  They acknowledge, I am not having a good day, I am sick, I don’t have enough money, I am depressed, etc….

But what is truth?  TRUTH is what God’s Word has to say about you and your circumstances.  Discover what His Word says about you and your circumstances. (hint: this is usually the opposite of our feelings).

Now I have the opportunity to come into agreement with myself and negativity or I can come into agreement with God’s Word and declare TRUTH over my situation and circumstances.  By taking this step of faith, I am now positioning myself to receive and move into what He has spoken.

I am not suggesting that we deny the state that we are in.  I am suggesting that we are not destined to stay there!   But to move forward, we must change our mind set and stop looking at our reality as truth.  We must view our reality for what it is, the state that we are in at the moment, and this is NOT truth.

Begin to speak God’s Word, what He has spoken, what He has promised, what He has decreed over your life and circumstances!   Stand on TRUTH!
