~John 16:12-15 “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.” LASB
Truth is what I cried out for when I came back to the Lord. Truth, do we really want it? I said, “Yes.” One thing I’ve found out since crying out for the truth is: Truth is going to hurt you. It will mark you as never before. Also, it will challenge you and require you to take a long hard look at the truth you believe.The truth we need to hear is about ourselves. What do we need to do in order to go to the next level?
Why is it we can’t bear to hear what the Father has to say right now? Could it be we haven’t prayed ourselves to the place to hear His voice?
~John 15:26 “I will send you the Advocate—the Spirit of truth. He will come to you from the Father and will testify all about me.” In order for this to happen, we must be able to hear.
~Mark 4:24-25 “Pay close attention to what you hear. The closer you listen, the more understanding you will be given and you will receive even more. To those who listen to my teaching, more will be given. But for those who are not listening, even what little understanding they have will be taken from them.
We all get weary. We all want to stop, but there’s something down inside of us that will not let this happen. He keeps nudging us on. There’s more, there’s more. Just keep pressing for you shall see.
