John 14:26 – “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”
Jesus was getting ready to go to the cross in this verse. He is trying to prepare His disciples for this event. He wanted to give them comfort in their time of sorrow.
Yet, this verse reaches through time to provide comfort for us today. We know that we do not have Jesus to walk and talk with us physically, but we have the Comforter to do the same thing that we desire of Jesus. We have part of God walking with us and talking with us on a daily basis.
This is how we learn. The Holy Spirit teaches us all things. When you are sitting and reading your Bible, this Comforter is there with you showing you the truths of God’s word. When you are sitting in church services listening to a pastor or teacher, the Comforter is there with you opening your heart to the message God is teaching you. How cool is that!
And when you are out doing your thing during the day and someone brings up something about the Bible and they don’t remember it exactly, who do you think reminds you of what Scripture says? The Comforter. He helps you to remember where things are at in the Word. He helps you remember what the Word says when you are faced with difficult choices and decisions. He reminds you to pray. He reminds you to keep your mouth shut. He reminds you to open your mouth and invite someone to church or tell them about His saving grace.
Princess, the Holy Spirit is a portion of our life that I fear that we sorely neglect and fail to utilize. We need to engage this blessing and let Him show us the more Perfect way. So today, let me encourage you to give the Comforter room to work in your life. You can’t really go at it alone and expect to be successful. You have to let Him lead you in the way of righteousness each and every day that God gives us life on this earth.
