Each day, I reflect upon a word or phrase from the readings of the day. I encourage you to do the same and perhaps incorporate that word or phrase into your daily prayer.
“I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now. But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth.” (John 16:12-13)
THE SPIRIT WILL GUIDE YOU: Jesus told his disciples that there is much more he wants to tell them. However, he realized that they had taken in about all they could handle; they did not have the capacity to absorb anything more.
However, Jesus reminded them that the Spirit would come and would guide them to “all truth”. He foretold of his departure, while promising not to leave them to fend for themselves.
Just as Jesus reassured his disciples, he reassures us as well – not that the Holy Spirit WILL come, but that he already is among us!
We have access to the Holy Spirit. He seeks to enter our heart and desires to calm us and guide us.
Do we recognize the Holy Spirit working in our lives? If not, perhaps we need to invite him in.
