Jesus not only had to offer His life as a sacrifice so that our sins would be forgiven...He loves us SO much and He didn't want to leave us alone on earth after He went back to Heaven, so He sent us the Holy Spirit.
God not only sent us His one and only Son, but also the
Great Comforter for when His Son went back to Him...so we would never be alone.
I've read so many times how God says He will "never leave us or forsake us," but today it didn't click until my Papa said it out loud. He truly has never and will never leave us.
It's been a rough year and sometimes I get so caught up in my world that I step out of His and forget. Fear takes the Peace and strangles it in dark silence...and I'm left alone. But as we were talking, I could feel the very Spirit we were discussing soothe my troubled soul, and Peace was mine once again because I KNEW...just KNEW that He's been with me. He Sees Me.
Like Naomi in the desert, the one human (a woman I might add), with the gall to NAME GOD. Like her I cry that He is the God who Sees me...and I am at Peace.
Thank you Lord...for You, Your love, and Your most precious Spirit.
