Reflect: Did you drive before there was a GPS to guide us? For a short time in life, I was an insurance claims adjuster. Part of this job was driving to various claimants’ homes to inspect and estimate their property losses. I have no sense of directions, so would consistently get lost, even after routing my destination from a paper map. I was pondering this one-day and thought how much time and energy I used to waste driving around lost. Getting my first GPS changed my life. Often, we go through life’s journey trying to figure complex situations out on our own without any type of roadmap. We miss left turns, go down unnecessary winding streets, and can spend years on a dead end road. It’s like we’re looking at a paper Thomas Bros. map in the dark when Jesus has given a GPS that lights up and can direct us on our life’s journey. The Holy Spirit wants to guide us through all of our circumstances today and tomorrow, as we walk into the future. In verse 13, Jesus tells us the Spirit will guide us in all truth. The word “guide” in the Greek, hŏdēgĕō, is the word used for a guide who shows a traveler the safest course through an unknown country. This means Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to be your Guide through the unknown twists, turns and decisions you need to make in life - especially when it’s unknown territory. He wants to show you the safest way to go. The Greek word for “all” is pas and it means: all, any, every, the whole, always, as many as, thoroughly, whatsoever, whole, whosoever. This word makes it pretty clear that you have access to this awesome Guide in anything and everything you are going through in life.
