We Are Not Alone

We will never have to go through life alone as long as the Holy Spirit is with us.

We are not alone. At least, we should not be alone. Why? Anyone with experience in strategic thinking and planning will tell you that it can be mentally exhausting. Oftentimes, it takes multiple people participating in the process to be effective. Having more than one isolated perspective can be extremely beneficial in the end. The Bible teaches us,

“Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” (Prov. 11:14).

Sometimes life can make us feel so lonely…

This same principle applies to our daily lives. As I often say, “No one has a monopoly on knowledge.” So we must seek out those who can present the same situation from differing vantage points for us to make informed decisions. When Jesus prepared for Calvary, He promised to never leave us comfortless, and that He would send us “another Comforter” (Jn. 14:16,18). We know that He was speaking of the Holy Spirit.

This is what we need to remember because Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to walk through daily life with us.

The word, Comforter, comes from the same Greek word, parakletos, which means “one who has been called to help,” especially in the sense of a legal advisor. As we prepare to enter our areas of promise, we will need to receive wise counsel above our personal knowledge and understanding. In other words, we need a Chief Strategist. We need someone with the ability to provide insight into forming the proper strategic measures. Therefore, as our Chief Counselor, the Holy Spirit leads us and “…guide us into all truth…” (Jn. 16:13).

Because of this truth, we know that we are not alone alone…neither will we ever be…
