“And I will ask the Father and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever, This is the sprit of truth, whom the world cannot receive because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him because he abides with you and will be in you.”
John 14: 16-17
Two tiny words, Lord.
– Barely noticeable within this powerful text full of hope and reassurance.
-A divine double distinction that You, Lord, deliberately chose to make a dramatic difference in our lives.
Two words: With and In.
You know him because he abides with you and will be in you.
Lord you come alongside of me and walk WITH me as an Advocate, Friend, Companion, Counselor, Comforter.
You stir up the spark of spirit you planted INside my DNA as you connect withIN my heart.
You are with me forever.
You are within me forever.
You abide, standing next to me.
You abide, dwelling within my soul.
I am amazed, Lord at your all encompassing, lavishing love that enfolds and inhabits.
Your spirit surrounds my being and sits in my deepest inmost core.
Enfolds and Inhabits.
With and In.
Thank you Advocate, Friend, Companion, Counselor, Comforter.
Thank you, Holy Spirit of God.
