Hallelujah that God understood and knew (obviously) that I would have a natural need for companionship.
In John 14, Jesus wanted the disciples to know He was not going to leave them alone. He talked to them about who the Holy Spirit was.
I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever… You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Yet a little while and the world will see no more, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. John 14:16-20
“Holy Spirit, another Helper, just like Me.”
A Helper, one who walks alongside, one who assists us, one who is a constant companion. A person of the Trinity.
The Holy Spirit is the One who helps and enables me to do what God would have me to do, how He desires for me to live. He is the energy and mind of God, helping me understand God’s Word, helping me live, keeping me from sin, giving me faith. He is a vital part of my life.
The Father is in Heaven, Jesus is at His right hand, the Spirit is down here listening.
I am the most like Jesus when I am totally surrendered to the Holy Spirit. God knew that I would never make it without His Spirit inside me. A Divine indwelling by a person of the Godhead, what a gift. It is freeing and comforting to know that I am never alone, that I have God’s Spirit energizing me, leading and guiding, strengthening and helping.
The Holy Spirit enables me to become who God wants me to be, and I am never alone.
“Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hand for battle; he is my steadfast love and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield and he in whom I take refuge…” Psalm 144:1-2
He is my steadfast love. My ally. A constant Presence.
A beautiful reality.
