Luke 12:12 ERV "The Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.”
TAUGHT BY THE SPIRIT
People who talk so much about their pastors and prophets don't impress me at all. It only reveals to me their levels in spiritual things. My goal is not to raise people who rely solely on me, but to raise able and mighty men and women, full of the word, strong in faith, relying on the Lord, in personal fellowship with the Holy Spirit! That's not to say you shouldn't honour, appreciate or celebrate your teachers, I'm only asking you to be a man too! You should be inspired to be like, or even greater than your pastor!
The Holy Spirit is for every believer. And He desires to work with each and every one of us the same way.
The Holy Spirit is our Teacher. You see, something is wrong if you have been doing everything all by yourself. Something is wrong if all you have ever achieved is by your own sweat! And something is wrong if everything about you is natural: there ought to be supernatural results to the glory of God! You should enjoy the help of the Holy Spirit! You ought to receive fresh ideas from Him, new instructions, guidance and inspirations. I love what Elihu said, "I thought, ‘Age should speak, and experience should teach wisdom.’ However, there is in humans a Spirit, the breath of the Almighty, that gives them understanding." Hallelujah!
