The Holy Spirit Brings God’s Truth to Mind
By Rick Warren
“The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and make you remember all that I have told you” (John 14:26 GNT).
God speaks through the Holy Spirit. He gives you thoughts. He gives you suggestions. He puts impressions or notions in your mind. When the Devil talks to you, he tempts you. But when God talks to you in your mind, he inspires you.
Jesus says in John 14:26, “The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and make you remember all that I have told you” (GNT).
If you are a Christian, then the Holy Spirit is your teacher and counselor. Some people spend thousands of dollars on a life coach. You’ve already got one!
Notice that John 14:26 says the Holy Spirit will “make you remember.” The Holy Spirit speaks directly to your mind. He doesn’t speak in an audible voice. Why would he need to? He doesn’t need to go through your ears. He goes directly to your mind. “His Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children” (Romans 8:16 NLT).
The Holy Spirit brings God’s truth to mind, but he relies on you to put God’s Word in your mind. That’s why you need to get into the Bible. When you read, study, and fill your mind with God’s Word, you are storing up truth inside of you—truth the Holy Spirit will bring to mind at just the right time.
