The Spirit Reminds You of the Word

  • John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
  • John 16:13-15 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.

The Holy Spirit reminds you of God’s Word. When you face a situation, the Holy Spirit will bring a scripture to your heart or mind, or He’ll lead you according to the Word. He can also provide an answer through Scripture.

Not only will the Holy Spirit bring what Jesus has said to remembrance, He will guide you into all truth and tell you what is yet to come. He may bring a verse to remembrance for something that may lie ahead of you. He may direct you to do something in preparation for the future. He may warn you of what is to come, e.g. He may direct you to take a different route than you normally take. Be attentive when Scripture comes up in your spirit and when you feel His leading or hear His still small voice.

How to allow the Spirit to remind you of the Word:
  1. Deposit the Word in your heart by reading or listening to it daily and meditating on it. Ask the Holy Spirit for guidance in given situations and He’ll be able to bring up a scripture in your spirit that will assist you.
  2. Take time to listen to the Holy Spirit’s still small voice inside of you in everyday situations. Write down the scriptures He brings to your spirit. If you’re guided to do something, ensure that it lines up with the Word. If it doesn’t, either Satan is trying to interfere or your flesh is.
  3. If the Holy Spirit gives you a verse for a situation, use it as an offensive weapon to counter the schemes of the enemy (if applicable). You’ll have success over your circumstance.
  4. Train yourself to listen to the Holy Spirit. He speaks often but we’re not listening.


Call to action:
Take time to listen to that still small voice trying to teach you, bless you with an answer for the circumstance you’re going through, or warn you or inform you of what is to come. When you’re experiencing a challenge, ask the Holy Spirit to give you a scripture for your circumstance.
