Ever just want to look smart? I know I have, the fact of the matter is we all want to look smart. On the job, in front of your friends or peers, even your children. No one wants to show up on the scene and look like a fool! Well good news. God has made a way for you to look like a genius every time, everyday.
You see, Jesus left us with the promise of the Holy Spirit.
John 16:13-15 NKJV
13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.[a]
You see these are the words of Jesus, He said the Spirit of Truth (Holy Spirit) has come, He will guide you into all truth; and He will also tell you things to come. He will speak to you and I from the authority of God, and what He hears God say is what He will speak to you and I.
Pastor B.B.Hankins said,
“The Holy Spirit is a genius. If we listen to Him, He will make us look smart. If we ignore Him, we look normal. If we would listen and respond to the Holy Spirit, we could avoid trouble in every area of our lives because He knows everything. We must learn to yield to and not resist the Holy Spirit.”
You see Jesus knew we were going to need Help, so that is why He sent the Holy Spirit. Many times in the scripture He is called our helper, our strength, our Guide. And see in the relationship that God gave us with His Spirit He was setting you and I up to look like a genius.
The problem many times is our mouth gets started before we even ask the Spirit of God what he thinks, or what we should say. I know from personal experience the quickest way to look dumb is to start talking without thinking, or without checking on the inside what God may want to say in a situation. No, God wants you and I to look and talk like a genius everyday, so lets take time to check on the inside to hear what God says and we can then speak what He says. That’s a sure fire way to look like a genius!
