But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Do you have nuggets stored?
Have you ever done a Bible study and then “forgot” about it? Then in a time of prayer or when you are trying to encourage someone or even yourself, it comes back to you. Now, you can always receive a supernatural word of wisdom or word of knowledge to help in a time of need. But there is a deeper sense of connection when you can apply something you know you have read, studied and gotten revelation on to a situation. You may not be able to remember the exact scripture reference, but the Spirit of the text is with you. The Holy Spirit stored it for you, it became a nugget.
1 John 2:20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One [you have been set apart, specially gifted and prepared by the Holy Spirit], and all of you know [the truth because He teaches us, illuminates our minds, and guards us from error]. (AMP)
Depending on the amount of time you spend with the Lord, you will have plenty of revelations stored. The thing is, if you don’t spend the time in worship, in prayer and in study; there won’t be anything there for God to bring back to your remembrance. It is up to you to enrich your relationship with the Lord and so He can place nuggets in storage for you to use when needed.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I thank You because as I continue to read Your word, and as I continue to come into Your presence, You speak to me. You give me knowledge, understanding and revelation. I may not need what You give me immediately; but in those times when I don’t know what to say or I don’t know what to do; the Holy Spirit brings back to me what You have taught me. I am reminded of what You say to me when I deal with stressful circumstances. I am also reminded of how You resolve the problems I encounter. You jog my memory on prayers I prayed and how You answered them. I remember the word and the clarity and understanding I gained. I am able to drink from that fountain again and again. When the enemy tries to plant seeds of bewilderment, loneliness, uncertainty, and abandonment, the Holy Spirit is there to remind me. You will never leave me, nor forsake me. Your grace is sufficient. You will give me a way of escape and I will be able to stand. If I am a faithful student, I will always have nuggets to draw on…
