Preventer of Mistakes
The Holy Spirit points you in the right direction; even from days of old.
“And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, ‘This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left’.” Isaiah 30:21
I truly love the fact that the Lord has always had our proverbial backs. He not only will direct us, as we are in route to do something, as mentioned in the above verse; He will also tell us about things that are going to happen, before they happen - Amos 3:7
However, if we look at John 16:13, we shall discover something that is truly remarkable.
“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.”
What this verse is really saying is that the Holy Spirit will guide you into truth about yourself; “truth as a personal excellence that candour of mind which is free from affection, pretence, simulation, falsehood, deceit” https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/Lexicon/Lexicon.cfm?strongs=G225&t=KJV.
What he hears from Christ concerning you, he will share with you. (“You” are the object of the verb); what is being told, or guided is “You”. Consequently, with the aid of the Holy Spirit, you can better know yourself. Thus, the easier it will be for you to avoid some very bad mistakes.
Thank you Jesus, for revealing me to me!
