Devotional: The Work of the Holy Spirit—Brings To Remembrance
Christian Devotion about the Holy Spirit Bringing Scripture to our Remembrance
"...But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you..." -
John 14:26 (AMP)
The Holy Spirit, whom the Father has given to us, will teach us all things. He not only opens our eyes to spiritual truths, but He also brings to remembrance what He has taught us in the past.
There can be times while reading the bible that we may feel like we're not really taking it in. We read the words, but it doesn't seem to come alive for us. This can often make us feel like giving up altogether. But I have found that scripture does get in. It could be months later, or even years later, when we are going through difficulties or facing spiritual warfare that the Holy Spirit brings previously read scriptures to our remembrance. And He does this to encourage us in God, to build us up in our faith and to remind us of the promises God has already made to us.
There is a wellspring of scripture within us, which we are unaware of. The Holy Spirit has stored it there as we have read His Word, so when needed, He can reach down and draw it up to the surface so that we can stand firm in the truth of God's Word.
