The question was asked, “How would you feel if Jesus was right beside you, living with you like He did with the disciples?  Awesome!  Things couldn’t get better, could they?

“But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name (in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf), He will teach you all things.  And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.”  John 14:26 Amp  “You know and recognize Him, for He lives with you (constantly) and will be IN you.”  John 14:17b Amp

Jesus was WITH His disciples, He was not IN them.  There were many times when the disciples were “on their own” as Jesus was at another location.

Jesus said, “I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send him to you.” (John 16:7) He did not leave us as orphans.

 Look at Who is IN us: The Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby!  Not only that but Eph 3:16 says that we are “strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the Holy Spirit Himself indwelling our innermost being and personality!” 

Before I get out of bed, I ask and thank The Holy Spirit for leading, guiding and directing me throughout my blessed day. 

Be aware of the Holy Spirit IN you.  He is your Helper!  Strengthener!  Advocate!  Counselor! 

Many Blessings,
