DAILY WORDS OF HOPE
BY PCG, HOPE CONGREGATION–SAK. EST
TODAY’S VERSE: JOHN 14:15-18
THEME: THE HOLY SPIRIT, OUR ADVOCATE
WORDS OF HOPE:
The coming of the Holy Spirit is a great blessing to believers. He is described as an Advocate. From the Greek word, “paraclete” – someone who is called to help especially in times of trouble, one who pleads another’s cause before a judge, act as a defence counsel etc.
As believers, we do not have strength of our own, we draw spiritual resources for survival from above as God deposits in us the Holy Spirit – who is our Advocate. In various countries, advocacy groups stand for and defend the course of others who don’t have the strength, power, resources etc. to defend themselves.
Many of such civil groups have made the voices of vulnerable persons such as women, children and the disabled to be heard and empowered for greater tasks. As an Advocate, the Holy Spirit knows we are weak, poor, sick, powerless, spiritual orphans, lonely, guilty of sin and needing help. The Holy Spirit acts as an Advocate by standing in for us by providing us with the strength and comfort; and directing us to our helpers, resources, providing us with knowledge and wisdom to overcome challenges.
Rely on Him, He is proven to be a great advocate that manifests in the physical realm. The Holy Spirit is our Advocate, always with us and for us.
• Thank God for the advocacy role by the Holy Spirit in your life.
• Pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to defend you in all situations to give you victory.
• Pray that you will understand the Holy Spirit`s role in your life
Thank you Lord for not leaving us as orphans and through your Spirit constantly defend, protect and guides us daily. We embrace your works and love in our lives and glorify your glorious presence and care always. Amen
