There is so much that Holy Spirit does as our Helper, more in fact than we realize.
John 16:12-13 – I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
We have spoken of the work of Holy Spirit to “reprove the world” of sin, righteousness, and judgment. But He has come not only to work THROUGHthe Church in the world, but also to work IN the church. Take a moment to read our Text for Today again. Holy Spirit has also come to “guide you(and me) into all truth.” Look at that statement! As our Helper, Holy Spirit is our Guide. The act of guiding (an active verb) is the work of a guide (a definite noun). Holy Ghost has come to “guide” (an active verb) “you (and me).” Knowing this action for which Holy Spirit has been sent in direct relation to me and my well-being, I can and do rejoice. Knowing that my God will “withhold no good thing from” me if I walk uprightly, I rejoice knowing that Holy Spirit will “guide” me so I may receive, enjoy, and utilize for His glory that “good thing.”
But just what is it “into” which Holy Spirit will “guide” me so I may indeed receive, enjoy, and utilize that “good thing” for His glory? It is “all truth.” Did you see that!? “ALL TRUTH!” What an enormous blessing that is which Father has already made available to us through His gift of Holy Spirit that He has poured out to come upon all flesh. It is through that gift that we can rejoice I in knowing that NO truth will be kept from us, that our old men shall dream dreams, that our young men shall see visions, that our sons and daughters shall prophecy. Oh, what a joy I having that promise given to us, knowing that Holy Spirit will “guide you into all truth” so we can see, learn, and walk in that truth as it happens about us.
Oh, my dear reader friend, Father wants you to know how to use “all things that pertain to life and godliness through the knowledge of Him that has called us to glory and virtue.” And that is possible because Holy Spirit has been sent to “guide you into all truth.” Oh, read it again; say it again; shout it to yourself again and again. THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD FOR YOUR LIFE. HE WANTS YOU TO LIVE IN VICTORY, TO LIVE IN HEALTH, HAVING BEEN HEALED AND DELIVERED, WITH EVERY NEED BEING ABUNDANTLY MET ACCORDING TO HIS RICHES IN GLORY.
