John 16:13 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

John 16:13

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. 


This verse was so heavy on my heart in prayer today, not just for me but for all believers. This came to mind: why do people need a guide? People only need a guide if they are going someplace tough or someplace they don’t know or have never been. Truth is truth. Whether it’s easy to receive or hard to believe doesn’t change the fact that it’s true, and we need help getting there.


One of the biggest lies the enemy tells us is that a loving God wouldn’t send people to Hell, and from the outside, that looks like truth, but the truth is God doesn’t send people to Hell. We have a choice, and the choice is Jesus or eternal separation. God chose to send Jesus to the cross instead of sending us straight to Hell. Jesus made the way, the only way, and that is Truth! There is power, freedom, and hope in truth!


Let me share the revelation I got today. The truth is that God knows every sin I have or will commit, and He knew this when Jesus went to the cross. As they were driving the nails into my Savior’s hands, my sins were driven there too, and He still loves me! No sin or shame can separate me from the love of God through Christ Jesus and that, my friends, is Truth, and it has set me free!!!! I encourage you today not to look at “easy” or “hard” truth, but simply ask the Holy Spirit to lead you into ALL truth and experience the freedom found there!!!


Be honest, Be willing, Be a vessel, and walk in His truth because it’s the only truth there is!!!


I love you all. God bless, Glory to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!!!!
