Daily Devotional for May 19

“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth… he will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.” – John 16:13-14 (NIV)

How the Holy Spirit Works

Understanding how the Holy Spirit works in your life is essential for deepening your relationship with God.

Jesus emphasized the importance of the Holy Spirit, describing Him as the Spirit of Truth who guides you into all truth. When you seek to know what Jesus is saying to you, the Holy Spirit communicates His words, helping you hear God’s voice as you read the Bible.

Guiding You into Truth

The Holy Spirit’s guidance is invaluable. He reveals Jesus’ truth to you, helping you discern and understand God’s will (John 16:13-14).

Whenever you seek direction or clarity, remember that the Holy Spirit is there to lead you. He illuminates the Scriptures, allowing you to grasp and apply their meaning to your life.

Directing Your Steps

Not only does the Holy Spirit speak Jesus’ words to you, but He also directs your steps.

Paul writes that those the Spirit leads are controlled by Him, not by their sinful nature. The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, giving life to your mortal body (Romans 8:9, 11).

This means the Holy Spirit is the source of divine life within you, influencing your thoughts, attitudes, words, and actions. He directs your path, keeping you from sin and leading you into the abundant life Jesus promised.

Bestowing Spiritual Gifts

The Holy Spirit also bestows spiritual gifts, equipping you to serve in the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:7-11).

These gifts are essential for the church to function effectively. They enable you to proclaim the power of Jesus to those who need to hear it. Embrace the gifts the Holy Spirit has given you and use them to fulfill your role within the church.

Empowering You to Proclaim

One of the most remarkable aspects of how the Holy Spirit works is His empowerment for proclamation.

In the book of Acts, we see how the early church boldly proclaimed the Gospel, filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 4:5-12).

Once fearful, Peter spoke courageously before powerful leaders, declaring that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. This boldness was only possible through the Holy Spirit’s empowerment. You, too, can rely on the Holy Spirit to give you the courage to share your faith.

Guaranteeing Your Hope of Heaven

Finally, the Holy Spirit guarantees your hope of heaven (Ephesians 1:13-14).

When you believed, you were marked with the seal of the Holy Spirit, a deposit guaranteeing your inheritance. This assurance means that despite Satan’s attempts to make you doubt, you belong to God forever. The Holy Spirit’s presence in your life is proof of your eternal inheritance.
