The Lord is the best teacher. He reveals things to us, to make us more effective in what we do. The classrooms He uses may not be optimal in our estimation but if you’ll listen to learn it will produce a demonstration of truth.
As the Lord trains us to be ministers of the gospel, He shares ministry truths you won’t learn in school. His Holy Spirit is the most adept teacher you will ever have. No wonder the apostle John said, “As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit–just as it has taught you, remain in him.” (1 John 2:27)
The Lord teaches us things everyday and many things we don’t share, because most are for our restoration not public proclamation. However, many things are for all of us. Today, I want to share a phrase the Lord spoke to me, for it will help us all as we minister to others. The Lord said, “Many people want to be heard not healed.” I hope that empowers you with understanding as you minister to others.
