John 16:13, “However when He, the Spirit of Truth has come, He will guide you into all the Truth”.
My dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious life-giving word of the Lord for today is taken from the book of John 16:13, “However when He, the Spirit of Truth has come, He will guide you into all the Truth”.
When the Spirit of God comes into your life then He will lead you into the Truth. The Truth here means “The Word of God.” So, when the spirit of truth comes, then He will lead you into the Truth. Why should a man be led by the word of God? This is a question that may arise while you read this verse. Why should a man be led by the word of God is because there is life for a man only in the word of God. There is forgiveness in the word of God and only through the word of God, He will be able to come out of all the knots that he is entangled in.
The word of God is like medicine, that heals the wounds of people and it comforts them. In the Bible, David says, “I have hid thy word in my heart that I may not sin against thee”. Word of God is important to protect us from committing sin in our life. The Holy Spirit will tell from within what to do and what not to do. He will guide you in the right way. That is why, Joseph when he was troubled by Potipher’s wife, to commit sin, he says, How shall I sin against God ? Saying this he threw away his mantle or cloak and ran away from her as he did not want to spoil the temple of God within him. Because he ran away from committing sin, what happened? He did suffer for sometime in the jail, it is true that he was punished unjustly but, in the end, a day came when God honoured his holiness. And since he obeyed the word of God and guarded his purity or chastity, God exalted him as the Governor of Egypt. So, we see that the Holy Spirit instructed him not to commit sin or do anything against his conscience. So, the word of God protects a man from committing sin.
My Dear children of God, let the Holy Spirit stay within you to guide you. Give room for the Holy Spirit into your heart today. When the Spirit of God comes inside of you then you shall receive strength. You should invite the Holy Spirit by saying “Lord, I invite you into my heart, to come and remain inside of me.’’ He will direct you in all circumstances how to speak, how to work, He will teach you everything. So today you give room for the Holy Spirit and the word of God that He teaches, into your heart. Then He will perform great things for you.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, thank you for speaking to us through the verse that ‘when the Holy Spirit comes into our hearts, He will lead us into all the Truth’. Holy Spirit come inside the heart of my children and dwell within them. Lord, help them to walk in the way of truth. Let the spirit of God break all the barriers, and cut down all the knots in their life and let all those who say that they are suffering from certain disease, receive divine healing in their bodies. Let the word of God deliver them from the spirit of darkness. Give them all that they need and honour them.
