1 John 2:26-27

These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.
1 John 2:26‭-‬27 NASB

God, You have not left Your people without discernment, direction, or truth revealed. Father You sent Jesus, Your Son, to make this possible in our life. When Jesus ascended He asked on our behalf to give us a Helper, the Holy Spirit, to be with us forever!! How blessed to have an anointing from the Holy One who lives in us and whom we know. Praise You God for the confidence, security and peace my soul knows because You abide in me and I in you. Holy Spirit, teach me all things and bring to remembrance from Your Holy Word all I have read and studied so I will always abide in You. God, may I know the things You have freely given through Your Spirit. Thank You God for letting me know You and the many blessings that have come by You. I give my life to honor You, my God, by the life You have freely given me. In the glorious name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
John 14:16/1 John 2:20/John 14:26/1 Corinthians 2:12 NASB

🌹that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.
John 14:17 NASB

Our Helper

“These things I have spoken to you while abiding 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 that I said to you.
John 14:25‭-‬26 NASB

“These things I, Jesus, have spoken to you”. The spoken word of Christ to His disciples. Who is Jesus?
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 NASB1995
Jesus, the Word made flesh. Jesus who spoke truth to His disciples. How do we hear Jesus? Through the Bible. Do you want to know God, His plans, His character, His love for you? Pick up the Bible and read it. Read it daily. Read it often. Listen to it. Obey it.

If you are a born again believer you have the Holy Spirit of God in you. How awesome is that?! He was given as a Helper who will teach us. As we read the Bible the Holy Spirit teaches us like Jesus taught the disciples. His spoken word.

The really awesome part of having the Holy Spirit residing in us is that when we fill our mind and heart with the word of God the Holy Spirit uses the Bible to direct our steps, speak truth, testify of Jesus and brings to remembrance the Word of God when needed.

🌹Jesus. Savior. Promise Keeper. Thank You for sending forth the promise of the Father, the Holy Spirit, upon us, who clothes us in the power from on high. The Holy Spirit, our Helper, sent by You, the Father, is the Spirit of truth who testifies of Jesus to us. Help us to believe the Scriptures and the word which You, Jesus, have spoken and to be obedient and learn from the teaching of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus name, amen.
Luke 24:49/John 15:26/John 2:22 NASB

God Speaks to You

The Lord said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes him mute or deaf, or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.”
Exodus 4:11‭-‬12 NASB

For I (Jesus) did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak.
John 12:49 NASB

But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.
John 16:13 NASB

🌹From the Old Testament through the New Testament God has always spoken to His children. Today is not different. God speaks through His Holy Spirit to us. Are we listening and obeying?

Present Every Person Complete in Christ

For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the Lord and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances in Israel.
Ezra 7:10 NASB

Is your heart set on knowing, studying God’s word? Knowing it and walking by God’s word? Practicing leads to telling others about God’s awesome plan. God’s plan is for you to walk closely with Him in an intimate, loving relationship.

If you are not reading daily and putting it into practice, how about starting today. Besides changing your life you could change someone else’s life.

🌹We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ.
Colossians 1:28 NASB

Seek And Find

Now the Spirit of God came on Azariah the son of Oded, and he went out to meet Asa and said to him, “Listen to me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin: the Lord is with you when you are with Him. And if you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you. For many days Israel was without the true God and without a teaching priest and without law. But in their distress they turned to the Lord God of Israel, and they sought Him, and He let them find Him.
2 Chronicles 15:1‭-‬4 NASB

For many days Israel was without the true God and without a teaching priest and without law.

🌹I can’t imagine being without the Lord for many days much less His word or someone to speak the truth to and with me. I don’t know about you but I need the Lord every minute. His word is my daily nutrition for my mind, heart, and soul. God’s church is my family to learn from and with. God’s plan is perfect when we walk according to His will. Are you seeking? If so God will be found!

Continually Seeking Him,

Is

“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts.”
Zechariah 4:6b NASB

“But by My Spirit”

“Woe to the rebellious children,” declares the Lord, “Who execute a plan, but not Mine, And make an alliance, but not of My Spirit, In order to add sin to sin;”
Isaiah 30:1 NASB

“but not of My Spirit,”

“Thus says the Lord, “Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind And makes flesh his strength, And whose heart turns away from the Lord.”
Jeremiah 17:5 NASB

We make plans. We put our trust in alliances that are not of God. We trust in our own intellect, our own weak strengths. But did not God give us His Spirit to teach, guide, protect, strengthen by His power and might? Our hearts are turned away when we trust in anything or anyone other than the Lord Himself.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord And whose trust is the Lord.”
Jeremiah 17:7 NASB

Not only trusting IN Him but whose trust IS Him.

Is: be: continuous action

🌹 Is your life demonstrating that God IS your trust?

Apple of His Eye

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness,
Psalms 33:18 NASB

Wow! To think that God’s eye is upon me is enough for me to fear, be in reverential awe of, Him. Who am I that the Holy God of the universe would have His eye on me?! It is enough to draw me close to and hope for His lovingkindness.

When we draw close, seek Him, stand before Him in reverential awe we are right in the midst of His love, kindness, protection and guidance.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Psalms 32:8 NASB

Do you realize how precious you are to God? He will fight for you. He will protect you. He will teach you. He will guide you. Guide your EVERY step. Will you let Him?

For thus says the Lord of hosts, “After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye.
Zechariah 2:8 NASB

🌹Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings.
Psalms 17:8 NASB

For You Are God

Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God;
Let Your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
11 For the sake of Your name, O Lord, revive me.
In Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.
12 And in Your lovingkindness, cut off my enemies
And destroy all those who afflict my soul,
For I am Your servant. — Psalm 143:10-12

You are my God and I am your servant. Teach me Your will. Lead me. Revive me. Protect me. All for the sake of Your name. Your glory. Your will. Your purpose. Your righteousness. Your lovingkindness.

Amen

Continually seeking Him,

Testimony

“Only give heed to yourself and keep your soul diligently, so that you do not forget the things which your eyes have seen and they do not depart from your heart all the days of your life; but make them known to your sons and your grandsons. — Deuteronomy 4:9

You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up. — Deuteronomy 11:19

Train up a child in the way he should go,
Even when he is old he will not depart from it. — Proverbs 22:6

Do you have a testimony to share? Is God alive in your life? Do you walk with Him daily? Have you seen the power of God working in you through His Word?

We have lost the power of a testimony in our world. If God is alive and working in our lives we are commanded to not forget what our eyes have seen and to not let them depart from our hearts but to tell of them. Let us pass the legacy of Jesus Christ onto our children and grandchildren by telling them of the great and wonderful things He has done in our lives. But don’t stop there. Tell everyone. You could be encouraging a brother/sister or introducing Jesus to someone. Let us not be silent.

Guide Me

Philip ran up and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and said, “Do you understand what you are reading?” And he said, “Well, how could I, unless someone guides me?” And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. — Acts 8:30-31

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 that I said to you. — John 14:26

If Jesus is your Savior and Lord you are never without the Teacher. Don’t be afraid. Open your Bible and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you.

But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. — John 16:13
