Holy Spirit Guidance

"When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future." - John 16:13

Before starting out on a trip, I enter the destination in the GPS and then proceed to the route. My GPS tells me how many miles to travel on a certain road, what exit to take, and how to get back on track when I take a wrong turn.

One night while traveling from Athens to Columbus, OH, my GPS told me to take a certain exit off Highway 33. I knew better, or so I thought, and ignored the instruction. Within five miles I was in the middle of a traffic jam due to an accident that had occurred. I was delayed 2 hours because I chose to ignore the instructions.

The Holy Spirit is the believer's internal GPS. He guides you to the right path and instructs you regarding exits and dangers ahead. When you choose to ignore His instructions you end up stalled or moving in the wrong direction.

When have experienced the Holy Spirit's guidance in your life?

"Holy Spirit, Thou art welcome in this place. Holy Spirit, Thou art welcome in this place. Omnipotent Father of mercy and grace; Thou art welcome in this place place." Amen. - Chorus by Dottie Rambo and David Huntsinger, 1977
