Don’t Be Troubled or Afraid

Don't Be Troubled or Afraid

“I am telling you these things now while I am still with you. But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative — that is, the Holy Spirit — he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you. I am leaving you with a gift — peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid “ – (John 14:25-27)

In a world of chaos and uncertainties as well as trials and difficulties, we rejoice. Not because we are out of touch or in denial, but because the presence of the Holy Spirit, our Advocate, within us brings us our Father’s comfort. The Spirit teaches us about Jesus and his great love and sacrifice for us.

The Spirit comforts us, ministering to our interior world — our spirits. This gift of peace is not something anyone can have without the Spirit. Yet because of the Spirit’s presence, we are blessed in ways that those without the Spirit cannot know.

Prayer: O Father, thank you for the peace that the Spirit brings. Thank you for the peace that comes from the Spirit’s presence. Thank you for the peace that the Spirit leads me to find. Forgive me for trying to rush my way through life out of touch with your Spirit and trying to control the circumstances of my life rather than relying on the guidance of the Spirit. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

  1. It is different when you are facing fears in the corse of natural life cicumstances. When you are trapped in a world of deciept, brutal maltreatment it is an example of not just normal fears. Fears of this nature are perpetrated, justifed maybe even in the name of god. The biggest sin a person can commit. Yet some people are talented in the ways of satan. There hearts and souls are empty, cold devoid. Some even relish in others pain though being cared for. I dont believe it is abnormal when a person is hurt and angry due to such emotional and psychological brainwashing. Its always a habit of the perpetrator to blame the victim. Its there own fault . Hes a fool mocking him to her friends as he digs deep into his soul wounded again to help provide. So lets not confuse regular fears if you will as compared to the brutal sadistic nature of some women. Of course they cant help it because there submissive. The prayer i say is not for my fears but for her soul. Somehow she feels justified. I only wish i knew how to do that. Because the amount of emotional harm and pain conducted on me are 1000 worse then covering up hurt feelings with anger. Some people dont deserve oeace or god. If it werent for the child i could leave again,. It is so clear
