The Truth Shall Set You Free

John 16: 12 – 15 says, "I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for He will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that He will take what is mine and declare it to you”.

How many times have you said to yourself, “If I had only listened to that still small voice, I wouldn’t be in this position now?” Sometimes, people believe whatever others feed them, because it sounds more appealing than the truth. However, the truth serves to protect, guide and lead us in the right way, so that the enemy of our souls won’t be able to cause confusion, grave damage and havoc in our lives. The truth liberates us from doubts, illusions, and fears. Since God is the source of all truth, then the closer we draw to him and listen to His word, the more we grow in the knowledge of Him and of His great love and wisdom for us. Jesus told his disciples that He would send them the Spirit of truth who will announce to you the things to come.

So, the question of the day is: What kinds of things are you ignoring that the Holy Spirit has clearly made plain to you? How could your life be different if you would only listen to the Spirit of Truth?
