But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the truth(the whole, full truth) –John 16:13
It sounds like a pretty foundational point, but I believe there are many who still question whether God really talks to people. Have you ever wondered about this? Do you ask yourself if God will ever speak to you? You’ll be happy to know that the answer is yes.
Toward the end of His time on earth, Jesus told His disciples, I have still many things to say to you, but you are not able to bear them or take them upon you or to grasp them now. But when He, the Spirit of Truth comes, He will guide you into all the Truth.
When Jesus spoke these words, He was talking to men with whom He had spent the previous three years.. yet He still had more to teach them. This surprising, because I would think that if Jesus was with me personally for three years, day and night, I would have learned everything there is to know.
But Jesus always has more to say because we will always be facing situations in life that He wants to guide us through. That’s why we’ve been given the Holy Spirit — so that we can hear God speak, even though He may not be physically in front of us.
Through Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit, God wants to speak to you on a one-on-one basis every day. He wants to lead you step-by-step to the good things He has in store for you.
The Father will give the gift of His Spirit to all who ask for Him. I want to say again emphatically that each of us can hear from God and be led by the Holy Spirit daily. Are you listening?
