JOHN 14:16-17 AMP
And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor–Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), to be with you forever– the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive [and take to its heart] because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He (the Holy Spirit) remains with you continually and will be in you.
When one says they are your stand by, what do they mean? According to the dictionary, a standby is someone to be relied on especially during emergencies. It is a favorable or reliable choice or resource it is one held in reserve ready for us.
The Holy Spirit who is God is standing by your side right now as you read this if you are a believer. You can rely on Him during an emergency no matter the magnitude of the emergency. Remember He is here to strengthen us. To imagine that the Holy Spirit who lives in me is on standby to offer help, to think that he never takes leave and He never loses focus and that He has my best at heart is mind boggling. This Holy Spirit who is all knowing and searches the deep things of God is our stand by.
If that be the case then, why should we be worried and why should we be afraid? He is right by our side ready for immediate action. If there is one thing you and I need to place emphasis on is fellowship with the Holy Spirit because He is the helper that God appointed to help us in our walk. May we learn this and not ignore Him because I believe if we do then we will begin to experience our Christian walk on a whole new level.
