THE HOLY SPIRIT OUR STANDBY COMPANION

Have you ever had a friend in life with whom you were tight? It’s like the two of you are inseparable twins. When one shows up, the other is definitely round the corner. God has given us the Holy Spirit as a friend who stands by us through the different seasons of life. He literally stands by us to celebrate the victories we achieve as well as encourage us when we are faced with challenges. That is why He is referred to as the paraclete. Have you ever seen a bride at a wedding function? They are literally taken care of, given almost all of what they want and escorted everywhere because nobody wants anything to go wrong with the bride on that day. This and more is what the Holy Spirit wants to do in and through our lives as we commune with Him. The first step to walking in this dimension is to recognize that He is present. He is available.

SCRIPTURE READING: John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.

DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, Thank you for giving us an ever present friend in the Holy Spirit. Help me to remember His continual presence in my life so that I will commune with Him continually in Jesus Name Amen.
