“And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. “1 John 5:6 NIV
The Holy Spirit helps us remember the Truth because he is the Truth. If you are unclear of the truth, there is no better place to go then to the Holy Spirit for clarity. He is the Truth.
There is power in the Truth of God.
In fact, as we learned in our first series, Armor of God, it is the spiritual weapon that will slice away the lies of the enemy.
“In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.Ephesians 4:16-18
Remember that the Sword of the Spirit is the Word of God. It destroys and cuts down that which is not the Truth of God. It chops anything down to its core to reveal what is and what is not in alliance with God.
“When we think of death, we usually think of a physical death. But a lack of truth leads to a spiritual death. We accept the opposite of what we are promised by God.“The Spirit-led Heart” – Suzanne Eller (ch. 3)
We need to know the Truth so we do not fall victim to lies. Those lies are specifically designed to draw you away from God and away from your God Purpose.
Don’t be confused, distracted or misled for one more day.
