Word of the Day..... June 18, 2013

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things…”  ~John 14:26~

I am so happy that we have a Lord who cares for us so much that He didn’t leave us as orphans when He ascended into heaven.  He sent us the most awesome Helper.  The precious Holy Spirit!!

It is amazing what the Lord can do in our lives if we allow Him to.  We have a completed Bible and when we take the time to really get into the Word we begin to find out that this very special book is alive!  Every time I read the Bible the Lord shows me something new that I can apply to my life.

I never will forget the day I came home from lung cancer surgery and the Lord gave me this scripture.  It just seemed to jump off of the page to me and I love it.

4 When Jesus heard that, He said, “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”  John 11:4 

It was profound and insightful.  I knew that the Lord was speaking to me through His Word.  From then on I realized that this is no ordinary book. When we are reading the Word under the illumination of the Holy Spirit it has the power to change our life for eternity!  It is like the Lord wrote it exactly for you.

This can also happen to you when you are in church.  Have you ever come to church and all of a sudden every single thing that you pastor is talking about is like a personal message to you and you alone?  Then you think wow this word is just for me!  It is as if the pastor has the power to read your mind or to look into your life.

 But this is the work of the Holy Spirit. Only He can do that. He not only converts us and assures us of our salvation, but He teaches us as well.  All we have to do is pray and open The Bible….  God bless you!!!
