Constant and Proven Help in Distress

We all have been granted a gift that is constantly at our disposal and fail proof in times of need, distress and trials.

To put it into action we simply need to trust it and ask for His help!

Stay Strong!

"I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you."
   - JOHN 16: 7

Jesus' promise recorded in John 16: 7 contains a name for the Holy Spirit —
"Comforter" —that reveals the uniqueness of His nearness to us.

It's equally translated from the Greek into six other names, each describing a different aspect of the Holy Spirit's ministry in our lives:

Comforter: One who relieves another of mental distress.

Counselor: One who gives advice.

Helper: One who gives relief and support.

Advocate: One who pleads the cause of another.

Strengthener: One who causes you to become stronger, to endure and resist attacks.

Standby: One who can always be relied on.

Isn't it reassuring to know you have Someone in your life with all these attributes?

That Someone is the Holy Spirit, who is Jesus in you!

From " Fixing My Eyes on Jesus " by Anne Graham Lotz

Stay Strong!
