1 John 2:27
But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true—it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ.
The Holy Spirit is the One who helps us to get revelation of the things of God in our heart. When revelation comes faith is there. It’s like walking into a dark room not being able to see the way out and then the Holy Spirit flips the light switch on. Once that happens you can see the way to go and act upon the Word of God.
A vital key in receiving this revelation is in how we read and listen to the teaching of God’s Word. Whether reading or hearing the Word taught, you must first recognize it is God speaking to you. It is not man’s words but God’s, for all scripture is given by God. Secondly you must give your full attention to God’s Word and not become distracted with other things. Pay close attention to what you are hearing.
Third you must learn to take verses that stand out to you and meditate on those verses consistently. Reading and hearing makes you aware of the Word, meditating on it is how you absorb God’s Word. Finally put what you know into practice for you deceive yourself if you are a hearer and not a doer of the Word. Put these truths into practice and His Word will become alive in you by the Holy Spirit.
