We need to know that felling in our heart is the Spirit and it is in us helping us live a life that is glorifying the Father. It is so important to realize that voice is there to help and guide. I truly believe when we are in God’s word and praying that voice is loud and clear, giving us our direction. When we get caught up in the world and what is going on we don’t slow down enough to hear it clearly. It says, “…He will guide you into all truth.” So I say pray to hear Him and open your heart to listen and don’t just use your ears. To me it is nice to realize the Spirit is the little voice I hear and not just my conscience or me trying to figure out each situation.
In verse 15 it says, “All that belongs to the Father is mine; this is why I said, ‘The Spirit will tell you whatever He receives from Me.”
It is clearly sent from God and we need to work on slowing down and listening to Him. I have noticed that usually when I slow down the very first feeling I get is the Spirit guiding me to truth. But sometimes I say “no” or I try and hear something that I think is right. I want to learn and I think it’s important that we all learn to pray, hear and then follow the Spirit even when we are not happy with what we hear. As we see and grow in our relationship with Him we truly fall into place of servant and we start to follow Him instead of trying to lead asking Him to come along.
In the final verse of John chapter 16 Jesus says, “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in Me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
All I want to do is say thank you and then do all I can to grow and learn to be like Him. Amen
