A dictionary is a map. It charts where we have been to get to the place where we are. It doesn’t suggest how to use a word, but instead documents how a word is commonly being used.
The Bible is a Map. It is a record of how far we have seen in various directions. It documents what we found where and when we found it. It has some information about lands and times that we have not seen yet, but the details are a little hazy.
The Holy Spirit is a Compass. He is a Level. He is a Standard we can compare to for measurements.
Read the Map. Study every detail you can find in it. If you are called to maintenance work in one of the locations you find on it, follow the Compass to that location and serve with all your heart and mind and soul and strength.
If you are called to go to a location that hasn’t been recorded on the Map yet, to build something we haven’t seen yet among people we don’t know yet, you will need to become intimate with the Compass, so that you can draw more map for those who are in the next generation who will follow you. Most of the land on the Map is desert. Some who were born in the desert are ready for their encounter with a Joshua or a Caleb to take them into the lands and times we have not measured yet.
