Morning Musings: John 16:13

“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.”  (ESV – Read the chapter)

If you are a follower of Jesus, you have the Spirit of God living within you.  Reflect on that for a minute.  The power and presence of the God who created the universe is dwelling within you.  That’s a pretty game-changing idea.

If you are a follower of Jesus and you don’t know where to go in life, you need merely to look inside of you.  And I don’t mean that in some kind of a new-agey way as if you were somehow divine yourself.  Rather, I mean this in the sense that if you are a follower of Jesus, you have within you the Spirit who can answer your questions.  Now, He may answer by telling you to go and consult with His word and other believers, but you can at least start there.  And His answers will not often come in the ways or times we would most prefer given our druthers, but they will come.  We can count on it.
