THE HOLY SPIRIT AND REVELATION
And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you forever. (John 14:16)
“The Holy Spirit is a genius. If we listen to Him, He will make us look smart!” – B.B. Hankins
The Holy Spirit knows everything! If we would listen and respond to the Holy Spirit, we could avoid trouble in every area of our lives. We must learn to yield to and not resist the Holy Spirit.
In Greek, the word yield means “when a soldier presents himself to his commanding officer for orders.” This word yield shows us how important it is for each of us to daily acknowledge, recognize, and respond to the Holy Spirit.
Jesus emphasized a relationship with the Holy Spirit–our Helper and Strengthener. If we did not need a vital relationship with the Holy Spirit, Jesus would not have sent Him to live in us. Holy Spirit is the One who puts us over in life. The Spirit of God lives in us, and He is there to help us in every area of our lives. In this relationship, the Holy Spirit will show us truth, teach us truth, and guide us into all truth.
Confession: The Holy Spirit, the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, dwells in me. He is a genius. I will listen and respond to Him, and He will guide me into all truth.
