Nobody likes being lost when they’re on a journey.

Yes, it’s true that many male drivers refuse to ask for directions when driving in unfamiliar areas, but the principle above applies in a far larger context.

Many journeys are not geographical, but instead emotional or spiritual.

I’m trying to become a better sojourner in my spiritual life, encountering a decreasing number of occasions when I don’t know which way to turn.

The more I listen to and learn from the Holy Spirit, the more efficient will be my life of faith.

In my Bible reading this morning, I read these words:

“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth” John 16:13

Jesus would not have said this if it were not true.

This means that we can’t begin to grasp the dimensions of God’s truth if we rely only on our brains and hearts.

So many facets of faith can’t be understood without the Holy Spirit’s help.

If they could, then Jesus was lying.

Please don’t try to do the faith thing apart from a thirst for more and more truth filling your heart, mind and soul.

You’ll fail if you lean on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6).

We need more truth guiding us if we are to pursue that for which God created us.

Pray for the filling and leading of the Holy Spirit.

Make sure you’ve done what Peter taught in Acts 2:38 for receiving the Holy Spirit.

It’s the only way to really know if you’re heading the right direction in loving, serving and sharing a godly faith.

As always, I love you
