Truth Guides My Steps

"But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come." (John 16:13 NIV)

In faith, I know this to be true:

The Spirit of truth works within me, and he guides me deeper in God’s truth. The Spirit of truth guides me to find truth wherever it can be found, because all truth is God’s truth (John 16:13).

The Spirit of truth has no agenda except to speak the truth, and he guides me into what is yet to come (John 16:13).

The Spirit of truth encourages me to take each step of faith. I know this to be true and will live accordingly. I believe, Lord; help my unbelief. The Spirit of truth guides me to the places where I will face my fears, and, as I face them in God’s strength, they wither away like vines overwhelmed by the brightness of the sun.

The Spirit of truth will lead me through a wilderness meant “to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant” within my life (Jeremiah 1:10 NIV).

And I will fear man no more, because I trust the Lord will keep me safe and keep me true to the truth (Proverbs 29:25).
