When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me.

John 15: 26


These are the words of Jesus, and he is describing basic and essential truth about God. He will never leave us alone or on our own; if we know the Father through our relationship with Jesus; then, we will have the Holy Spirit with us. God’s desire is to never be separated from his children again, and his promise is to always be with us.


There is nothing that we can encounter that God does not have an answer for; there is no where that we can go that he doesn’t know the terrain. We have been provided with the guide book to healthy living in the Bible, and God has given us the only authorized interpreter for when its words seem mysterious.


The Spirit of God is in this life with us without day off and without reservation or hesitation. Whether I am in the middle of a major screw up or a huge decision, God will speak to me and he will direct me to proceed in a way that will bring honor to him. I have a life resource that is unique to God’s children, who gives me the kind of constant feed back and guidance that I need to navigate my way through this complex world. I need to do three things in order to allow this relationship to flourish: I need to recognize that the Spirit of God is real in my life; I need to allow his voice access to my heart on a consistent basis; and I need to let go of my willful desire to be in control; then, I allow God to take me to places that are wonderful beyond my ability to imagine.
