Holding Hands…

“I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper to be with you forever, He is the Holy Spirit” 
John 14:16

We love walking along holding hands and enjoying every part of life together. We share as much time as possible side by side. It doesn’t matter whether we’re shopping, travelling or walking on the beach, as long as we’re together we’re happy.

Today’s verse lets us know about a relationship that is closer than that of a husband & wife. Jesus says that He has given us a “helper” who’ll walk with us. One who’ll stay with us forever. This helper is the Holy Spirit.

The word “helper” means comforter, advocate, the one who comes alongside. This is an important role that the Holy Spirit plays in our lives. He brings comfort & draws in close as we walk through life’s mountains and valleys. He brings counsel, wisdom & strength to us every day.

This week let’s take time to acknowledge the work of the Holy Spirit in our life. With Him beside us we will never be lonely or alone. We will have His wisdom, power and good counsel beside us every day. As we honour the Holy Spirit, we’ll quickly discover that the counsel we need is always available and our lives will become less stressful.
