Our Advocate

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever- John 14:16

Before Jesus ascended to heaven he promised to send us an advocate (NIV), a comforter (KJV), and Helper (ESV) to live with us forever. Think about that, the power of God is living inside of you forever. The same power that rose Jesus from dead is living inside us (Romans 8:11)

The Biblical definition of advocate is  one who defends, one who pleads the cause of another and one who comforts

As God has promised he will never leave or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5) The Holy Spirit is with us always, we are never alone. We don’t have to worry about the trials and tribulations in our lives because God is with us. And if God is with us who can be against us? (Romans 8:31) We can have the Faith, Hope, and Love of God in our lives regardless of the circumstances because the our covenant with God is eternal

How can it be possible to feel love and joy when faced with a difficult situation? It’s because we have been given the Fruits of The Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) The Fruits of the Spirit are Love, Joy, Peace, Forbearance, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control. The power of God allows us the strength to do all things through Christ (Philippians 4:19) Why would you want to try and take the world on alone? God has equipped us with the Fruits of The Spirit to be overcomers, because Christ has already overcome the world in Jesus Name Amen
