(AMPC) But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.
Have you ever wondered how the Holy Spirit will remind you of everything Jesus said to you? I finally figured it out the other day.
I learned that since Jesus isn’t standing in front of us today, teaching and telling us words of wisdom, it has to come when He speaks to you through scriptures. It is an “ah-ha” moment. You have to read your Bible. You have to sit under anointed teachers, preachers, ministers.
So since Leland moved to heaven, I have worked to ensure I don’t wallow in a spirit of grief. On the day he died, I was sitting in the bathroom staring at the wall, at nothing. I went in to wash my hands and just sat down. I asked God if I could just come on now.
Obviously He dealt with me about staying. That’s not the point here. The point is that I made the faith statement, “I choose to live a supernatural life.” I made the decision to live – for now. I had NO idea.
I had no idea that I would have to make that statement and that choice several times in the past 4 months. I had to fight to live and fight to resist the devil when he came for my peace and sanity. Instead of going to bed and staying there, I made the choice again and again to live.
During all this time, while our son Josh was dealing with his own grief, he constantly kept me on track. He kept throwing scriptures and words at me. He helped correct my thought process. He kept me going forward instead of sliding into grief and going backwards.
I expressed a little surprise at the wisdom coming out of his mouth. It’s not that I didn’t know he walked in wisdom but the depth and power behind his words, well, I realized Who was speaking through him.
He said, “I’m not telling you anything you and dad didn’t already put in me“.
Immediately the Holy Spirit spoke in my spirit (not an audible voice) John 14:26. He was bringing to Josh’s remembrance things Jesus said to him through his parents so he could turn around and bring those things back to remind me.
Another circle of life. Another form of protection – even if it’s from your own self.
