The Holy Spirit As A Guide
  By Charles Spurgeon

    "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 speaků" (John 16:13). God has provided the Holy Spirit to guide us.

    The Holy Spirit is infallible. He knows everything and cannot lead us astray. He is ever-present. When we have no commentator or minister to help us, we still have the Holy Spirit.

    The Holy Spirit teaches us in three ways: suggestion, direction and illumination. There are thoughts which dwell in our minds that are suggestions put there by the Spirit for us to follow. Sometimes He leads us by direction, leading our thoughts along into a more excellent channel than that in which we started. Sometimes He leads us by illuminating the Word of God to us.
