We can miss things. We don’t always see clearly and we aren’t always the first to admit when we’re wrong. It’s true of all of us.
That’s the beauty of the Holy Spirit living inside us. He reminds us of the truth of God’s Word. He brings the scripture, stored in our hearts, back to mind to convict, lead, and guide us. He searches our hearts and will often show us the very thing we wish not to see.
And he does all of this out of love. He loves us too much to ignore the things we cannot see. He loves us too much to let us be less than we could. He loves us too much not to search us. He loves us too much to lead us anywhere but everlasting life.
