John 16:13-15 Voice; “The Spirit of truth will come and guide you in all truth. He will not speak His own words to you; He will speak what He hears, revealing to you the things to come and bringing glory to Me. The Spirit has unlimited access to Me, to all that I possess and know, just as everything the Father has is Mine. That is the reason I am confident He will care for My own and reveal the path to you.”
Did you know that we have unlimited access to Jesus through the Holy Spirit. There is absolutely no reason that we shouldn’t know which path to take with that kind of knowledge. The only reason I can think of is, we just don’t take the time to ask or listen for the answer. We’ve adapted the worlds ‘instant’ mentality. When we need something, we want it now! When we want something, we want it now!
Say I have a recipe I want to make for dinner. In my refrigerator is everything I need to make this wonderful dish, but instead of opening the door and retrieving what I need, I simply stand there waiting for them to come set themselves in front of me so I can continue. How many know that we’re not eating tonight! No, I must first open the refrigerator and gather the things I need, put them in a bowl, mix them together, put them in a pan and bake them all in the oven. It’s only then that we can it it.
God has given us wonderful stories in His Word which contains the ingredients for life and godliness. If we fill ourselves with His Word, we will eat and be satisfied. Not only that, but we will have a continual supply of Words in us to encourage, build up and strengthen ourselves and others. You can’t eat unless you open the book and pull some things out. The greatest part is when you partake, you end up with a feast to feed thousands and tens of thousands because what is in you multiplies. When you understand the great love of God, you become a conduit for that same love to change people around you. When you understand the power of God, you become a conduit for signs, wonders and miracles in YOUR workplace, YOUR community. YOU become the preacher, teacher, leader that God has called each of us to be.
Father, I see now that I am full of the Spirit you sent me and that He is the one who leads me and shows me things that I simply couldn’t know myself. I’m not humanly smart, educated or wealthy, but in the Spirit, I have access to everything Jesus had to operate here on earth. I have the answers because YOU have the answers and you show them to me. Oh man, that makes me so excited for my future. I have Your favor living inside of me and things are about to get very interesting. I’m excited for all the recipes I’m going to partake of as You reveal to me the things that have remained hidden in Your Word. It’s to Jesus I give all the praise and honor for glory, Amen
