We are of God: he that knows God hears us; he that is not of God does not hear us. Hereby we know the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error (1 Jn 4:6).
Recently in my devotional reading I was reminded of a precious gift that is our heritage in Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit actively works in the child of God exposing error and revealing truth by His Word in our hearts. Praise His name! We are bombarded with error all the time by the working of the evil one, but as the redeemed of the Lord (if spiritually attentive) we can distinctly hear the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me" (John 10:27). I find this to be of great comfort in times like these. May God raise us up as a LISTENING church! Much of the deception of the enemy is intended to make us think we cannot discern truth and error; by faith let us affirm that we can by the Holy Spirit. In your scriptural meditation, make sure to spiritually listen, and be assured that our Lord will speak specific applications of His eternal word to our daily lives. This revelation is specifically intended to equip us to stand in the truth. Amen.
And when he puts forth His own sheep, He goes before them, and the sheep follow Him: for they know His voice. And a stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
