How can we be led in truth? Because we are believers, we understand that there are unseen, invisible realms as well as unseen forces. The power of God resides in His Word and we turn to His Word in order to learn about our topic.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; on You I wait all the day. (Ps 25:5) We, like the psalmist, can pray and expect God to lead us in His truth.
Oh, send out Your light and Your truth! Let them lead me; let them bring me to Your holy hill and to Your tabernacle. (Ps 43:3) God’s ways are filled with light and with truth. They will always lead us to Him and to His throne.
Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (Joh 8:31-32) As we familiarize ourselves with Scriptures, and live in obedience to them, we are abiding in God’s Word. The Gospel of Jesus Christ sets us free from all bondage. Jesus is the Living Word who sets us free.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (Joh 14:6) Jesus said of Himself, “I am . . . the truth . . . “ Jesus is the only One who has given mankind an example of complete obedience to God, and He will lead us if we will yield to Him and follow. He desires to lead us and guide us.
However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. (Joh 16:13) The Holy Spirit will lead us and guide us into ALL truth. Keep your spiritual ears open, and recognize that the Spirit will always speak in agreement and harmony with the Word of God. He will speak the Truth.
That, however, is not the way of life you learned 21 when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. (Eph 4:20-21 NIV) There is truth in Jesus, according to this verse. Believe Him and trust Him.
But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. (1 Joh 2:27) God has anointed all believers, and all we need to do is to follow Jesus.
In order to be led or guided by the Lord, we must be eager and willing to follow. All sheep follow and keep an eye on their shepherd. Every believer should joyfully follow the steps of Jesus because He is the Truth who leads us.
He will lead us into the glory of eternity! Hallelujah!
