TRUTH! Today it feels like their is so many versions of truth. My prayer for my children is that they will know THE TRUTH!
John 16:13 says:
13 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.
The Spirit of Truth is: THE HOLY SPIRIT who is with us always, and always ALWAYS guides us into TRUTH! He is the messenger of God and a critical part of the trinity, for he brings with him such hope and promise of the future, as well as comfort while we wait for that truth to come.
The funny is when we think of Truth, a lot of our worldview goes to the “truth” about science or math or world history, BUT this truth we are talking about in this verse ‘guiding us into truth’, is referring to spiritual truth that we need for growth in godliness.
SO my prayer for my kids is that they may KNOW God’s truth.
Lord, I pray that as my children learn more about you that they may KNOW YOUR TRUTH. I pray that our conversations will be guiding them into the LIGHT of your TRUTH. That they will search after and find the Spirit of Truth. Thank you for sending your Holy Spirit to be the messenger and comforter.
Join me, as well pray for the Spirit of Truth to be known in our children’s lives. And pray they KNOW TRUTH!
