Scripture Reading: Hebrews 5:11-14 (All Scripture quoted is NIV)
Scripture Quote: But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. (John 14:26)
As we deliberately study God's Word, the Holy Spirit, our Advocate and Counselor, will increase our understanding. He brings certain instruction to our remembrance as we live out a godly lifestyle. Christians lean heavily on inspiration so that we can understand and follow God's precepts. As we pray and study, we develop discernment to help us avoid Satan’s snares and all the world's influences. Christ told His apostles that when He died, He would bequeath to them and to all His followers, tranquility and happiness in the form of the Holy Spirit. Jesus promised us everlasting friendship with Him.
If we dig into Scripture daily, we develop the ability to apply the truth within to our lives. When difficulties arise or decisions must be made that are important or life changing, we will be fully prepared to follow God's path. Though at times our specific circumstances may not be directly addressed in the Bible, we still will have the principles and direction of all that we have learned from our study. The Holy Spirit will bring to our minds exactly what we need to make good, godly decisions - That, and the constant desire to emulate Christ, gives us all that we need to live a peaceful and blessed life.
Today’s meditation: Study and let the Holy Spirit guide your life.
Memory Verse: But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth. (1 Jonn 2:20)
