📖: John 14:22-31
Confession: Psalm 23
A comforter is a person or thing that comforts; But “THE COMFORTER” is the “Holy Spirit”. Many are the gifts of God, but none is greater than the gift of the Holy Spirit. When we have the gift of the Holy Spirit, every other things will fall in the right places. The Holy Spirit is indeed a real living personality. He possesses a mind, emotions and Will. The Holy Spirit thinks and knows all things and even deep things of God( 1 Corinthians 2:10). The Holy Spirit is equal in every way with God the Father, and God the Son. God is a Holy Triune God. The Holy Spirit is considered to be the third member of the Holy Trinity that lives inside of us. He helps us avoid sin and stay on the right path as our Helper, Counselor, Intercessor, and Comforter. The Holy Spirit is the executive power of God and executes the Will of God on earth. He possesses the characteristics of God. The Holy Spirit can be grieved (Ephesians 4:30). The Holy Spirit intercedes for us (Romans 8:26-27). He makes decisions according to His Will (1 Corinthians 12:7-11).
When Jesus was on earth, He was God in the flesh that comforted us physically, and spiritually. Jesus Christ told His disciples not to allow their hearts to be troubled nor will He leave them as orphans, rather He promised to send them “The Comforter”. (John 14:26). The Comforter was not exclusive to the disciples only but by extension to all those that believe in the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus and that He is the Son of God. The Comforter, the Spirit of truth, the Spirit of God that will come and be our Helper and Comforter. The Holy Spirit is the bedrock of Christianity.
Sometimes we go through circumstances and trials, that we cannot solve on our own, and we fill lonely, rejected, miserable, and discouraged, up to given up. Jesus Christ is saying to us today, that the Comforter is with us to teach, protect, direct, and comfort us in times of discouragement and sorrow and to build us up. What is that problem or situation that is challenging our existence, joy, happiness, marriage, finances, or health? There’s nothing too hard for the Comforter to do for us. We don’t have to go through any problem or situation alone, the Comforter is with us to empower and strengthen us, give us the spirit of boldness, and courage to go through any situation. When we surrender to the Holy Spirit, through faith and prayers, we will develop and grow spiritually and have Christ-like character as it is written in (Galatians 5:22-23). With a renewed spirit in us, we are able to have a relationship with God and He will uplift and uphold us to fulfill our destiny. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:2). Stay connected! Stay focused! Have a blessed day. Shalom!!!
