Advocate, Comforter, Friend

Posted: June 05, 2017

"And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever"  John 14:16

Here, Jesus is talking about the Holy Spirit.  The Bible calls the Holy Spirit our comforter.  So many people are uncomfortable when we talk about the Holy Spirit, but He was sent to be our comforter, solace, support, reassurance...He consoles us, soothes us, calms us, uplifts us...that doesn't sound scary at all!  God is a loving father and He never wants to frighten us or cause us to avoid Him.

Father, thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to go with me and comfort me when I need it.  Help me to learn to recognize Your presence.  I desire to grow in all the ways You have for me.  Thank you for being a loving, gentle Father who is always for me.  Amen.
