John 16:13 “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.”
The Holy Spirit will give witness of what He hears from the Father in your spirit. The more in tune you are with the Spirit of God, the more you will experience a ‘knowing’ within you. We are always growing in this. The freer we are of our selfish love the more we will hear God’s voice within us. You don’t necessary know how you know, but you just know if something is authentic or not. You cannot discern anything correctly without the Spirit of God, which we call the Holy Spirit.
To become more in tune with the Spirit of God, we first have to be willing to obey God. The more obedient we are to God the more He will favour us with His Spirit, which is also called the Spirit of enlightenment. To know God is to have the mind and heart of God. Of course we are so insignificant before Him. It is only His love for us and the price Jesus paid for us that made this possible. We are so small, we are smaller than a molecule before Him. I obviously don’t mean we will ever equal Him, but we are of the same wave length so to speak. We are made in His image, we are like a very tiny mirror reflecting the sun. Even though a tiny mirror is no way equal to the sun, when it is reflecting the sun, it can blind you with its brightness. Jesus is the light of the world and we have become a light of the world too, because of what Jesus has done for us, so that we are not only saved through believing in Him we also have The Holy Spirit that dwelt in Him.
The Holy Spirit Dwells in a Believer
So when the Holy Spirit dwells in us, after we are born again. That is completely surrendering ourselves to God on His terms, which is believing Jesus is His only begotten Son and our saviour. Depending how deep the conversion has taken place we will have the ability to recognise the true voice of a person. If the person is a fake or not. Are the people are who they say they are Etc. If they are of God they will have qualities of His character for example God is not cruel, barbaric, hypocritical, double minded, selfish, lustful etc. Many people hide behind religion and pretend they righteous people when they are in truth not. Wolves in sheep skins, beware not everybody who smiles at you can be trusted.
We are all at different levels of maturity and we are always if we are real believers in Jesus are always finding more things about ourselves we have to strip away. That is a good thing because it means we are growing. If we are content with ourselves and think we a good Christians and worst still, consider ourselves better than others that is a dangerous place to be. You are in a good position to back slide, because you are not being alert of what needs improving in you.
Isaiah 32:17 And the effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever.
If we are living in union with the Holy Spirit of God, there is always peace and righteousness. True righteousness, shines and glorifies God. When a person pretends or is misled in thinking he is righteous there is never going to be true peace, because you have to be real with Jesus. We can’t serve two master and I am afraid that many do and don’t realise it. For the last year I have had to chuck things out of my home, after realising they are not pleasing to God. I had a beautiful dragon that I love and it was a gift from somebody who is now deceased, so I also had a sentimental attachment with it. I kept saying to myself and to God that it is just an ordainment. Something inside of me kept persisting that it was not right for me to have it, so I end up chucking it and now feel a lot more happier because of it. It does win to do the will of God and you do receive peace and it is worth the sacrifice. God can’t give you blessings if you refuse to obey Him.
