Whom I will send to you from the Father,
The Spirit of Truth, the Father’s Holy Spirit, is with us and in us.
This is not meant to be self-pitying or self-indulgent, but hopefully these rough meditations upon the Holy Spirit's loving ministry in the midst of our weakness will encourage you to keep going, too. Because He is already victorious.
NB: I looked up ‘standby’ and found this: someone who is a staunch supporter; one who can be relied upon; one who is ready to serve; one who is ready to step in, even at the last minute; one whose help we can choose to use regularly; one who is ready to serve as a substitute when a gap needs to be filled.
Holy Spirit helps me when it seems like no one else will or can.
Holy Spirit is my Advocate, when no one else is on my side.
Holy Spirit, Spirit of the Sovereign Lord:
