TOPIC: It’s Better This Way
SCRIPTURE: However, I am telling you nothing but the truth when I say it is profitable (good, expedient, advantageous) for you that I go away. Because if I do not go away, the Comforter…will not come to you…but if I go away, I will send Him to you…. — John 16:7(AMPC)
Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional 29th June 2022 MESSAGE
The presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives is wonderful beyond what we can imagine. He is our Comforter and that means He will help and comfort us anytime we are hurt as we journey through life. I like to think of the Holy Spirit being as near to me as my breath.
The Holy Spirit leads and guides us into the plan of God for our lives. Learning to follow His leadership is definitely a journey. We are accustomed to living by our own thoughts, feelings, and desires, but as Christians we need to learn to be led by the Holy Spirit. Jesus came in the body of a man and understands all that we go through in life. It gives me great comfort to remember that Jesus understands me! He is patient and will continue working with us as long as we are willing to continue learning.
Why would Jesus say that it would be better if He went away and sent the Holy Spirit? What could possibly be better than having Jesus in person on the earth? Jesus could only be one place at a time, but the Holy Spirit can be everywhere, working in everyone all at the same time. It is amazing! He never leaves us, not even for one moment. He knows everything about us and is working to heal all that is broken or wounded in us, and to put everything in its proper working order. Every day we get better and better in every way through the awesome power and wisdom of the Holy Spirit.
PRAYER STARTER: Lord, I rejoice knowing that Your way is the best way, and that you are with me at all times, working in me and through me until everything is good working order.
