am grateful to
have the opportunity to commune with You, Holy Spirit!
I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans
for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.’
– Jeremiah 29:11
when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the
truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He
hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. –
Good morning Holy Spirit!
Good morning Jon!
Me: The enemy, I know, is constantly waging a propaganda war, detracting from the message of Truth and hope. He even has his mouthpieces spouting that their particular lie is the truth, that we should be incensed about whatever they are harping about and revolt against that which, I can often see, is proceeding according to Your plan.
is not new. It has been this way since he showed up in the garden to
tempt Adam and Eve. Jesus spoke of it in
are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your
father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in
the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie,
he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of
lies. – John 8:44
who will turn their hearts to Me and put on the full armor of God
(Ephesians 6) will be able to extinguish the fiery darts of the evil
one by the shield of faith. As
the schemes of the devil progress, you will continue to see stronger
polarization in beliefs. I am watching over My Word to perform it

Have I not said it, and will it not come to pass (Numbers
11:23, Psalm 33:9, Isaiah 55:11)? Those who are open to Me will have

8. Their hearts are hardened. This was predicted:
man, you are living in a rebellious house. They have eyes to see but
do not see, and ears to hear but do not hear, for they are a
rebellious house. – Ezekiel 12:2
Thank You Holy Spirit! Thank You
for Your guidance, for revealing the truth and the promise of the
future, for giving hope! My faith is in You, God, for You are good
and nothing that stands against You will prevail! I love You!
Listen to counsel and accept discipline, That you may be wise the rest of your days. Many plans are in a man’s heart, But the counsel of the Lord will stand. Proverbs 19:20-21
Who doesn’t want to be wise? And, I like this plan better than any of my own:
For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
So, what’s the problem? It is not about a lack of competent instruction, or the good will of God. Maybe, as the proverb above starts out, the trouble is listening and accepting. Maybe there is a need to walk in faith toward that hopeful future.
