The Teaching Spirit
“The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: He wakeneth morning by morning, He wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.” - Isaiah 50:4
Do you have difficulty remembering things? One little lady said, “My memory is what I forget with.”
Thankfully, we have the Holy Spirit, who has a ministry to our subconscious. He is there not only to teach you the Truth, but also to help you recall the Truth and apply the Truth in every situation.
Over and over again, the Holy Spirit has done this in my life in the midst of preaching, witnessing, or counseling. The Lord has given us the “tongue of the learned” (Isaiah 50:4). Isn’t that wonderful? You may not have a formal education, but you can still be a counselor to others in trouble. Why? Because God lives within you.
When you walk in the Spirit, He will give you the words to speak in season to someone who is weary. But He cannot remind you unless you first learn it. How we need to open our hearts to what the Blessed Advocate is doing as He tries to make Jesus real and vibrant in our lives.
