The Spirit of Truth

Joyce Meyer (7)

Revelation goes beyond the mental, feeling or seeing realm and knows that God is.

It’s so important to know God through revelation and not just head knowledge or with your feelings, because what we think and feel change easily and this can deceive us. When this happens, if we don’t feel warm and joyful, we think God has left us. When we encounter a trial or tribulation, we wonder if God loves us. If God delays an answer to our prayer, we wonder where He is and why He’s not working.

John 14:17 (AMP) says, “The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to its heart), because it does not see Him or know and recognize Him. But you know and recognize Him, for He lives with you [constantly] and will be in you.”

It’s impossible to know God except by revelation because He’s a Spirit and your mind cannot know Him. You can know about God with your mind, but what you know about Him spiritually is not something you can explain. You just know.

God has given all of us a measure of revelation, but not everyone understands it. That’s what makes sharing the Gospel difficult sometimes, but don’t ever get mad at someone because they don’t get it.  To people who have never had a revelation of who God is, you might as well be speaking a foreign language. In the meantime, try to meet them where they are without compromising who you are in Christ.

We need to be careful not to pressure people when we witness to them – or pressure ourselves to do it. It’s so important to be led by the Holy Spirit when we share the Gospel with people because He knows just what we need to say and what they are ready to hear. When God gives you an opportunity to share about Jesus, do it with a sweet, patient spirit, but the minute any tension rises, take a step back and get out of the situation.

Instead, pray for those people to have “a spirit of wisdom and revelation” because when God shows them the truth, it will be clear to them what they need. Then they will finally get it, and I love to watch what happens when they do.
