Who Will You Pour Your Heart Out To?
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is some, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself: but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.
Believers need to turn the knob on the lens of their heart's microscope and refocus.
We need to search deep into the heart of the things that truly matter. It's time to run to the real Source of our help and direction. Our guidance is not in a person or a best friend. Our counsel should not be in the group of buddies that always agree with us because they think, "He's too sensitive. Let's just agree."
When we sit in God's Presence, something is going to happen. The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth, (if we allow him) is going to set things right in our lives. (If we're willing to hear and receive the truth) You see, we may not like what he's going to say, but if we really sit and listen, we're going to get it like it is. He is not going to speak about anything else but God's agenda. He's not going to show us what we want or what makes us comfortable. He's not going to rub our egos and pump up our personal goals. We're going to get Heaven's Agenda, God's Kingdom recipe to make it through the good and bad times.
Does this mean we never trust people again? Can I be saying there are no such things as best or good friends? Let's clarify what I am saying. Don't put your wholehearted trust, surrendering your all into the heart and life or another. You see, they need the Lord to guide them and speak to the them just like you do. Your group of peers needs to run to sit in God's Presence so they can be used of the Lord to give the right counsel. If not, all the words that proceed from their mouths is vanity, because it is coming from them. The Spirit of Truth will speak of the things of God and nothing or no one else.
I'd love to know what you think. It matters. I know you've been hurt. I know you ran to people you believed were people there to counsel and help you and instead they let you down, took what you said in private and shared in public, and brought such pain. I'd love to know you will run to the Lord. His Spirit is ready to counsel you and me if we but take the time to open our hearts and listen.
