Imagine having a companion who goes everywhere you go. A companion who never gets tired and neither does he sleep. This companion is all knowing and he is also all powerful. His agenda is to help you, to ensure that you succeed. Now wouldn’t that be something powerful? The reality is, if you are a believer, you already have such a companion.
John 14:16 (AMP)
16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another [a]Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), to be with you forever—
Jesus promised that he would not leave us alone like orphans but he would send us a helper, the Holy Spirit and we know from the bible that he did so. The promise is that the Holy Spirit would be with us forever! If there is one encouragement that we all should find strength in as believers, it is the fact that God has not left us helpless.
Romans 8 tells us that the same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in us, what a blessing! Sometimes when we are in the heat of challenges and all manner of discouragements we tend to feel like God is so far away and He is so hard to reach but nothing is further from the truth. For the believer, God is always with you wherever you go. His Spirit lives in you and not just for the sake of it, there is a purpose. Because of lack of understanding, many miss out on that purpose. He the Spirit is your helper, you can call on Him anytime for help, remember he knows all things past present and future, He is God. He is your comforter, to encourage and comfort you because the walk can get tough and weary. He is your advocate to argue out your case for you because we have an enemy who is the accuser of the brethren and he is consistently looking for an opening to accuse you. The Holy Spirit prays for you; imagine God himself is praying for you. To add to that Christ is at the right hand of God the father also making intercession for us. Wow! That is what I call a set up to succeed!
You are never alone, God promised that He would ensure that never happens and we know He did. So take heart and be encouraged because your creator is always with you He will never leave nor forsake you, He is your helper, all you need to do is ask!
I have a helper, one who is all knowing and all powerful. My counselor and helper, the one who makes intercession for me and teaches me how to pray my comforter advocate and strength. He will never leave me nor forsake me, I am never alone!
