Daniel Fast- day 16-monday

Day 16 –John chapter 16

 

The Holy Spirit – Our Prayer Partner

 

“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard.” John 16:13 (NLT)

 

The Holy Spirit has many functions. He convicts the world of sin and God’s righteousness, guides believers in truth, glorifies Jesus, and speaks on the authority of Jesus. He knows the future. Jesus declared Him as our Helper. Who better to guide us in prayer than the Holy Spirit?  Even when we can’t pray or don’t know what to pray, He prays for us in ways we will never understand this side of eternity (Romans 8:26-28)

 

The Holy Spirit is always with us as believers.  He takes up residence within us when we become a child of God or get saved.  We are only commanded to “be filled” with Him.  Yielded, surrendered, controlled by Him is our position.  As we surrender to Him, day by day, moment by moment, we can have the confidence that He will “never” lead us in the wrong direction. He only speaks what He hears from Jesus.  Do you realize this; He will never lead us wrong because He speaks to us what Jesus tells Him to.  This is great news!  When we open our hearts during this time of prayer and fasting, the Holy Spirit will guide us, about whatever it is we are fasting from and for. He guides us in “the” truth and will bring joy and encouragement always, and during our prayer time.  As you pray and focus today, thank the LORD for giving you, and us, Holy Spirit as our prayer partner.
