Divine Instruction by Keith Miller

You also gave Your good Spirit to instruct them and did not withhold your manna from their mouth”—Nehemiah 9:20.
Dear Friends, the Precious Holy Spirit will lead, instruct, and daily teach us!
The Lord gave His Good Spirit to instruct the children of Israel . God’s Good Spirit, by Moses, instructed them fully, and as they followed the Lord’s guidance, they could always be certain of provision and assured of His very best.
The Lord gives us His very best in the Person of the Holy Spirit to instruct us. The word “instruct” in Hebrew means to have success, to have wisdom, to make wise, to guide wittily, or to give understanding. Jesus expounds on the sentiments of this verse in John 16:13 when He shared, “However when He, the Spirit of Truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”
 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My Eye” (Ps. 32:8).
The context of the word “instruct” in this verse means to be prudent, be circumspect, wisely understand, prosper, to have insight, to teach to act prudently, act wisely, to have success. “Teach,” here means to throw or shoot, to point at or like an archer shooting an arrow. To “guide” here means to advise, consult, to give counsel.

The fullness of the careful choice of these words in this verse gives us the sense that with His instruction, teaching, and guidance, we will be able to “see” through God’s Eye the beginning from the end and the end from the beginning. Joshua saw it so that he could say at the end of his life: “Behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth. And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you; and not one word of them has failed” (Joshua 23:14).
Inevitability and certainty stands for generations when God counsel, instructs, teaches, and guides us, “Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure” (Isaiah 46:10).

When you let God’s Good Spirit, the Spirit of Truth’s counsel guide and reveal to you how to have insight, how to act and live wisely, how to be successful, and how to prosper, you'll be as a well-tuned arrow that hits the mark often, and this will happen in succeeding ages, even to the end of the world.

May the Lord release a fresh grace and anointing upon you to direct your ways!
Lord I pray in the mighty name of Jesus that every person who reads this would know a deeper union with Your Precious Holy Spirit. We thank you for deep, deep communion with the Holy Spirit, such that we can live, move, and have our being in tune with the plan and purposes of the Father.  This is a powerful time in You Father. This is a time of Greater Realms of Glory and Greater Displays of Your Glory. Thank You, the Precious Holy Spirit will guide us and anoint us for this Season of Increase of the Glory! In Jesus Mighty Name!
