OUR COMFORTER

John 14:16 Amplified Bible - “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever … .” John 14:26 Amplified Bible -“But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name to represent Me and act on My behalf, will teach you all things. And He will remind you of everything I have told you.”
     In a world where the word 'comforter' can mean nothing more than a down filled throw that covers your bed when you are cold in the winter, we see scripture that speaks of a more important use of the word. It is a title of an entity who is traditionally referred to as the Holy Spirit of God; the 3rd Person of the Holy Trinity. God knows what we are in need of at all times, so He graciously & most willingly provided us with a ‘comforter’ to guide us thru this life. 
     I purposely used the Amplified Version of the Bible because it lists all the other meanings for the word “comforter” in the above listed verses. The Holy Spirit is all those things for us. He is also our guide when we are lost. He convicts us when we go against the will of God. Without the wisdom & direction provided by the Holy Spirit, we would stumble about like blind men.  The Spirit of God doesn’t force His will on us. We must seek His council & then listen for it. It will come in the “still small voice” rather than the clashing cymbals. It is in our quietest moments that we learn the most profound lessons. 
     This world is full of clang & clatter. Noise can be our greatest enemy when trying to discern what God is trying to tell us. Cloister yourself away when you can and listen. Read His word. Ask God for whatever you need & then listen for the Spirit of God. God has never failed you & He never, ever will. Trust Him in all things. Until next time, walk with the King & be a blessing!
