But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Wouldn't it be nice if God nailed a sign in front of us when we were going astray?
Good news! He sent the Holy Spirit to us. God in us, teaching and guiding us. How cool is that?
So why is it we don't get the message?
- Lack of developing a relationship with the Holy Spirit.
I don't do this nearly enough. Get away, leave the stuff behind, and get quiet before the Lord. Think how quiet your house sounds when the electricity goes off. We don't recognize how the noise of the world infiltrates our lives. This helps develop that relationship. The Holy Spirit is often that still small voice from the midst of you. He can be warning of danger or simply letting you know yes you do need milk from the store. Learn to recognize that voice and act on it.
Don't grieve the Holy Spirit. Don't ignore Him. Hear and obey.
The signs are there - in fact, in you if you but listen.
Discern His voice and follow Him and He will lead you in paths of righteousness.
