The God who sees ME

The God who sees ME

El Roi is my favorite name of God because it means the God who sees. He sees me. He wants to have a relationship with me and wants to know every detail of me life even though He is KING of the Universe. He is so good to me. He is my Lord and Savior. Nothing shall separate me from His love. He is All that I need and MORE!

The Holy Spirit is the Counselor

Here's another excerpt that really touched me yesterday. The Holy Spirit meets our every need!

The Holy Spirit is the Counselor

"The Amplified Bible gives six other names that could be equally translated from the word in our text for "Counselor." Each name, as it is defined by Webster's dictionary, describes a different aspect of the person of the Holy Spirit. He is our:

1. Counselor: One whose profession is to give advice and manage causes.
2. Comforter: One who relieves another of mental distress.
3. Helper: One who furnishes with relief or support. One who is of use and who waits upon another.
4. Intercessor: One who acts between parties to reconcile differences.
5. Advocate: One who pleads the cause of another.
6. Strengthener: One who causes another to grow, become stronger, endure, and resist attacks.
7. Standby: One who can be relied upon either for regular use or in emergencies. 

Can you imagine how wonderful it would be to have Someone with these attributes in your life?
Are you distressed today?
     Then you need the Comforter.
Are you facing a major decision?
     Then you need the Counselor.
Do you need relief from, or support in, your responsibilities?
     Then you need the Helper.
Do you have a broken relationship?
     Then you need the Intercessor.
Are you being criticized, falsely accused, misunderstood?
     Then you need the Advocate.
Are you constantly defeated by habits of sin?
     Then you need the Strengthener.
Are you unprepared for an emergency?
     Then you need the Standby.
The Holy Spirit is fabulous! He's everything that Jesus is!
have you ever wished Jesus could be to you what He seem to be when you were a child? Did He seem so real then, so close, so comforting, so understanding, so strong and protective? Have you ever wished Jesus would come in the flesh, sit next to you, take your hand in His, tell you how much He loves you,talk to you about your problems, and give you wise advice? He has come! His is here in the person of the Holy Spirit who make Jesus real to you and me. He is the "Spirit of Christ"!"
