In the Book of Acts, speaks of Pentecost and the power that came because the Holy Spirit came.  Mighty and strange occurrences took place.  Holy acts took place.  That same Spirit of Holiness is with you and me today.  Odd as it looks, grief is a time when the Holy Spirit will intervene to make a tremendous difference for our benefit.

Life in Christ assures the presence of the Holy Spirit.  Even though losses in life do hurt, Jesus said He would not leave us comfortless.  He would send the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, to help us through difficult emotional times and challenges.  When we ask the Spirit to move in our hearts and in our circumstances, He will.  It may mean answers that we did not expect.  But everything the Holy Spirit does is done by God’s decree.  Therefore, inherent in an answer is love.  God’s unchanging love.

Lord, Thank You for Your promise to send to us the Holy Spirit to help us.  Lord, we are never without comfort and care–all because of You and Your perfect promises.  Thank You, Lord, for Thy blessed assurance in all we face in life.  In Thee, Amen.
