CALLED ALONGSIDE

For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:5 (NKJV)

God stooped down from the heavens to rescue you from sin, and He continues to extend His hand to you each day to soothe your damaged emotions, your frayed nerves, your broken dreams, your heartaches.

“But He seems so distant, so remote, so detached at times,” you say. Although you may feel this way, it is not the truth. God said that He will never fail you, forsake you, or leave you without support. (See Hebrews 13:5)

What a promise! And God certainly keeps His word. He performs this divine pledge through the person of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is God inside you. He is called the Comforter, meaning “one called alongside to help and aid.”

When you are down, the Holy Spirit knows exactly how to encourage you. When you are grieving, the Holy Spirit knows the balance between shedding tears of grief and gently wiping them from your cheeks. He is at work to comfort you through every trial and adversity.
