"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, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.” - John 16:12-15 ESV
There are moments in our lives when the circumstances and events around us, whether our own doing or not, can begin to feel out of place or chaotic. In those moments, we need not scramble to make sense of everything, or to restore order, but to simply seek Holy Spirit’s guidance. We can lean into the promise that while the answers to questions may be ‘not yet’ or even feel like they are unheard, we have a friend who will guide us. Often the Lord will walk with us and reveal things to us one step at a time because to do otherwise would cause us to miss the mark entirely. He is a good and trusted friend and He will not lead us in circles. We do that to ourselves when we don’t trust His leading. Take the time each day to lean into His presence and seek His guidance. Follow peace and walk one step at a time with our good Friend who will not lead us astray and will fulfill the promises that are yes and amen.
