Who's Your Teacher?

Updated on October 19, 2011

"But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." (John 14:26 - KJV)

There is a very powerful truth contained within the verse above. I believe that most Christians know it, but forget about it as they battle life.

We all know that life hits us in the face everyday. There are issues that need to be attended to, problems that need to be solved, along with all the other stuff that we have to do.

The powerful truth of this verse is that we have a teacher living within us that brings comfort. How do we forget about this as we get involved in the events of our day? We forget that the answer to the problems we are facing reside with us. Not within our brains, but within our spirits. Sometimes we can get so involved with our brains that we forget to check with the Comforter who is there to teach us.

Notice that this verse states that the Comforter will teach us "all things." Stop and think about that for a moment. If the Comforter has the ability to and has been given to us in order to teach us all things then we have the ability to learn how to handle "all things" that we come face to face with.

This is a powerful promise because more than likely you are facing something in your life right now as you read this article. You may have even wondered if there is an answer to your situation. According to the Word of God we can be comforted through the Teacher that has been given to us.

Think for a moment about how this teacher can bring comfort. Let's say that your home incurs some damage. In order to repair the damage you are going to have to attempt to do something you have never done before. I know for me this would be stressful because I am not handy in the area of fixing things.

I may get a book or look on the internet to try and learn how to do the repairs needed, but there would still be anxiety associated with the repair process.

In this same example let's say you are telling someone what you are going to do and they say, "I've done that a thousand times. Would you like for me to show you how?" You can imagine the relief you may feel knowing that there is someone equiped to instruct you in the proper way to repair the damage.

This is the example that Jesus is talking about. We have a teacher! There is not anything in life that we can face that is beyond our ability to handle. If we only can learn how to receive instructions from the Teacher.

God is interested in our lives. He has not left us to fend for ourselves, but has provided everything we need to face the challenges and obstacles of life.

Let the Comforter do what the Comforter was commissioned to do. Let Him instruct you in all things and see how powerfully successful in this life you can become.
