Scripture Reading: John 14:15-17

“And I will ask the Father , and He will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him or knows Him. You know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.” (John 14:16,17)

We must remember that we are never alone. We have the Holy Spirit dwelling in us — “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God?” (I Corinthians 6:19) The Holy Spirit came to dwell within us when He caused us to be born again. He will never leave us. We are never alone!

Jesus called the Holy Spirit our “Helper.” He is the helping presence of God within us. He helps us in our weaknesses. He helps us when we lack direction. He empowers us to face difficulties. He comforts us in our times of pain and sorrow. He helps us in our battle against sin and Satan. He equips us for ministry and service. He produces spiritual fruit in us — love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22,23).

The Holy Spirit is also known as “the Spirit of Truth.” He is the One who guides us into God’s truth — “When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth, for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak, and He will declare to you the things that are to come” (John 16:13). The Spirit illuminates our hearts to receive God’s truth, for without the Spirit we cannot accept the things of God — “The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually appraised” (I Corinthians 2:14).

The Spirit of truth, our Helper, will be with us forever. He will never leave us. He will help us in whatever we do and in whatever circumstances we face. He will guide us into God’s truth. We are never alone!

Spirit of Truth, my Helper, thank You for Your presence within me. Thank you that I am never alone. You will give me all I need to face whatever comes my way today. You will guide me into truth and will lead me as I make decisions and choices each day. Thank You that You are the helping presence of God within me.
