Topic: Our Winning Advantage
”But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come” – John 16:13 NIV
God is always on the side of His children and always wants to protect us from our enemies. This is why we must maximize our relationship with the Holy Spirit. He wants to help us; therefore we have to choose to listen. We have to drain out the noise and find his voice.
In 2 Kings 6:8-12, Israel won the battle because the Holy Spirit played a major role in helping them strategize and reposition themselves against the intelligent schemes of their enemy, the King of Aram. God’s Spirit through His prophet Elisha always leaked the secret of the Arameans’ plans to Israel.
If the King of Israel had thought that something sounded impossible and had doubted the instruction of the Spirit of God, Aram would have won the battle but he wholly obeyed the voice of the Holy Spirit. This is also true for us today; lest the enemy should take advantage of us, but Glory to God we have the Holy Spirit, our winning advantage.
“Build up yourself in your most holy faith”
