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.
Are you waiting to hear that voice from Heaven tell you that God hears you and is watching out for you? You might be wondering, what must you do to break free from the troubles and distress of your life? What assures you that God is listening and working through your difficult 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 says above, the act of our obedience and keeping His commands, shows that we love Him. Great thing is, God helps us to be obedient, and His Spirit guides us and convicts us when we do wrong.
Our love for Him, demonstrated by our obedience, guided by the Holy Spirit, will give us assurance that God will work out our troubles for us.
