Sometimes God holds back. He does. But we lose track and misunderstand it. Why? Because it's more than you can bear. We often ask Him for insight but he doesnt allow you to know and we must understand that, like the disciples, we too aren't always ready for what He is about to do. This is specifically why we need the Holy Spirit to open up your understanding and PATIENCE to wait.
As I was studying and reading John 16:1-14 I came across a few verses and here is what it says:
If you want what He wants, you must hear what He hears.
What are you listening to that brings about the direct opposite of what He wants from you?
8 When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 about sin, because people do not believe in me; 10 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; 11 and about judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.
I have a few things that we have to understand is that God is more concerned with your obedience than He is your comfort. Here are some thoughts of what the Holy Spirit will do if we allow Him to do it. Verse 8 holds the key to it all:
1. Clarity of SIN (verse 8)
2. Clarity of RIGHTEOUSNESS (verse 8)
3. Clarity of JUDGMENT (verse 8)
We must know and be clear as to what He wants from you. These three thoughts are made so clear in this passage. Clarity of Sin & Righteousness. Darkness & Light. God & Satan. Carefully thrown after these two is JUDGMENT. I think sometimes we miss it but PLEASE .... don't. His desire to speak to you is immensely more than your desire to hear.
When you take a moment and pray, ask Him is there is anything He has tried to shield you from that you run TO instead of FROM.
He love you more than you know.
