“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.” John 16:13
I was watching some Canadian Geese fly over yesterday, and then circle to land on the lake near our home.
There was one group that was leading, and one goose that seemed to be leading that group. But then another group came in, mixed in with the first group and suddenly they were flying into each other, wings touching as they tried to circle around and glide down.
I watched the confusion, then watched as they seemed to sort themselves out and begin to land on the water.
I was reminded of how we can also get confused if we follow others that do not know where they are going.
Those that do not have a solid foundation of faith in Jesus Christ will flounder as they follow the flock, not understanding the eternal consequences of their decisions.
But we that have the guidance of the Holy Spirit can trust Him to lead us in the direction of God’s will. And if we follow that direction, we will never be confused or left floundering.
