521 God Will Bless Those Who Sincerely Pursue the Truth
1 What is discipline by the Holy Spirit, what is blame born of human intent, what is guidance from the Holy Spirit, what is arrangement of an environment, what is God’s words enlightening within, if you are not clear about these things, you will have no discernment. You should know what comes from the Holy Spirit, what is rebellious disposition, how to obey God’s word, and how to throw off your own rebelliousness; you should understand the details of all of these truths, so that when something happens, you have an appropriate truth with which to compare it, have suitable visions as the foundation, have principles in every matter you do and are able to act according to the truth. Then your life will be full of God’s enlightenment, full of God’s blessings.
2 God will not mistreat any person who sincerely seeks Him. He will not mistreat any person who lives Him out and bears witness for Him, and He will not curse any person who is able to sincerely thirst for truth. If, while you are eating and drinking the words of God, you can pay attention to your own true condition, pay attention to your own practice, and pay attention to your own understanding, then, when you meet a problem, you will receive enlightenment and will gain practical understanding. Then you will have a path of practice and will have discernment for everything. A person who has truth is unlikely to be deceived, and is unlikely to behave disruptively or act excessively. Because of truth he is protected, and also because of truth he obtains more understanding. Because of truth he has more paths to practice, gets more opportunities for the Holy Spirit to work in him, and more opportunities to be perfected.
