Being Taught

Psa 32:8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
Psa 32:9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.

A well taught child hears his father's voice, he knows his ways and one look from him is all he needs to be corrected or to be given permission to do something. We are the adopted children of our Father God and we are to know his will and be guided by his Spirit.

We are to be close to the LORD as our source of wisdom and we are to live out our lives as he teaches in his word. We are guided and given direction through the eyes of the Holy Spirit. We must be attentive to understand and to do his will as he guides us in all our steps. We are not as brute beasts held in place by bit or bridle. Pay attention to the word of God, do as you are taught and you will see clearly what to do.

The Holy Spirit is the best teacher

1Jn 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

1Jn 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
1Jn 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
1Jn 2:20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.

unction, chrisma, the special endowment (“chrism”) of the Holy Spirit: - anointing, unction.

You are chosen and anointed for service as the adopted children of God, to learn and to obey in all holiness.
