Trouble Shooting Too - June 3, 2011

John 14:15-17(New International Version)
15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.

As I commented on previously, we wait to hear that voice from Heaven tell us that God hears us and is watching out for us. We wonder, what must we do to break free from the troubles and distress of our lives? What assures us that God is listening and working with us through our situation?

If we want to always have God's favor and know that He will work everything out for us, we need to walk in obedience. We need to follow His instructions found in His word and do what He asks us to do. As Jesus said above, our obedience, keeping His commands, shows us that we love Him. Great thing is, God helps us to be obedient, because His Spirit guides us and convicts us when we do wrong.

Our love for Him, demonstrated by our obedience, guided by the Holy Spirt, will give us assurance that God will work out our troubles for us.
