The Spirit of Truth and Wisdom
Scripture reading for April 26th: 1st Kings 4-6, John 16
Key Scriptures: John 16:12-14 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of Truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth, for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak, and He will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify Me (Jesus), for He will take what is Mine and declare it to you.”
Jesus explained to His disciples that He would teach them much more about Himself and in fact guide them into all truth. This would come when the Holy Spirit was poured out on them after His resurrection to the Father. This would be the Father’s gift. Each person would have access by the Holy Spirit to God’s wisdom.
1st Kings 4:29-30 Solomon asked God for wisdom —“And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and breadth of mind like the sand on the seashore, so that Solomon’s wisdom surpassed the wisdom of all the people of the east and all the wisdom of Egypt.”
Prayer: Lord, thank You that You know all things. Fill me with the Holy Spirit and wisdom that I might live fully in Your will and advance Your kingdom. Amen.
