Praise God! It just hit me.
I was talking to some people [most if not all are former JWs] awhile back online. I remember we were talking about the Trinity. I didn't understand it. How is it possible that there's people who just don't understand. Well, I think I was told it has to come to them by the Holy Spirit. They just can't understand it on their own.
I understand that now. No human can just tell someone and they automatically understand.
I also know I haven't been trusting Him enough. I so need to trust Him more.
Now I get it! He will reveal the truth in His own time.
Hey, I just remember something my old pastor said [I say old pastor because I have no way to get to church anymore]. We can't convict anyone. That's the Holy Spirit's job.
I haven't been trusting the Holy Spirit to convict like I should have been. I've fell back into the trap of thinking all I need to do is talking to them/give them answers.
That's why prayer is so powerful! The Father draws them towards Jesus,the Holy Spirit convicts them and Jesus gives them eternal life.
King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
I'm not sure of a verse that says the Holy Spirit convicts, I just know it's got to be in there somewhere!
Wow, now that is beautiful! God, the Father,Son and Holy Spirit is involved in a person's salvation.
Woah...between praying and trusting in the scriptures. I wasn't sure exactly what to do. Now I surely do though!
Praise God! I have been under tremendous anxiety lately. But, now the anxiety feels like it's just falling off. :0)
