7. God is our Counselor.
Slide 7 of 7
Consider the difference between a stranger waving and smiling at us versus a friend’s attempt. One knows us by name. The other? Not so much.
The Holy Spirit, like our familiar comrade, intertwines and enhances our life with familiarity. We’re not strangers to Him. He offers wise counsel, insight threaded with a beautiful, personal touch. When our faith collides with such counsel, footing for solid faith awaits. Our question finds its answer, and we’ll likely never be moved again.
“But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you.” (John 14:26 WEB)
May the verses lending assurance of our Father resonate well with those of us questioning now.
If you’re asking, “Are you real, God?” consider uttering the words of this prayer:
Father, thank You for the one reading this. You know their questions. You know their heart. May this one come to a very personal, Spirit-led answer that yes, You are real. I pray their faith deepens as a result of these solid answers, that they allow Your strong counsel to prop them solidly in Christian faith. And may they never again be moved. In Jesus’ mighty name, amen.
