I spend most days visiting and praying with people in hospitals. I’m there in His Name, with His Word and His Spirit, sharing His love. And during my times there I see God do the sweetest things for people and hear God say the sweetest things to people.
That’s just what happened earlier today. The person I was praying with was moved to tears and asked God to teach them His ways.
I sensed compassion rise in my heart and I said something straight from the heart of God that ministered to me as much as it did the other person.
Parents teach their children how to tie their shoes. Right? Right.
During this time of training what do the parents do when the children’s shoes need to be tied? They help their children tie their shoes.
Our Father which art in heaven… (Luke 11:2, KJV)
Show me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. (Psalm 25:4-5, KJV)
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9, Amplified)
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things… (John 14:26, KJV)
Everything that the Father has is Mine. That is what I meant when I said that He [the Spirit] will take the things that are Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you. (John 16:15, Amplified)
We are being taught. We are being trained. And along the way we are also be helped… by Our Heavenly Father.
