NEVERTHELESS I TELL YOU THE TRUTH;
IT IS EXPEDIENT FOR YOU THAT I GO AWAY:
FOR IF I GO NOT AWAY, THE COMFORTER WILL NOT COME UNTO YOU;
BUT IF I DEPART, I WILL SEND HIM UNTO YOU
Believe that the Lord Jesus has sent you a Helper—His own Spirit. You have an Adviser…a Sustainer…a Maintainer. You are not companionless…unaccompanied…alone. You are not forsaken…pushed aside…betrayed. You have a Helper who is IN you.
AND I WILL PRAY THE FATHER,
AND HE SHALL GIVE YOU ANOTHER COMFORTER,
THAT HE MAY ABIDE WITH YOU FOREVER
I bless you to be comforted and encouraged. God sent the Comforter to be IN you—to help you from the inside-out. You are never alone. Do not be intimidated by your surroundings and circumstances. You are not abandoned. You are not floating around in thin air. You are grounded. You are safe. Your Counselor is in you. Do not be anxious about anything. Do not be afraid to be by yourself. Your Encourager abides with you forever. You are complete. You have everything you need for Life and Godliness—God’s life-giving Spirit IN you.
THOUGH MY FATHER AND MOTHER FORSAKE ME,
THE LORD WILL RECEIVE ME
I bless you to know that even if your father and mother have forsaken you, the Perfect Father has received you. Be comforted and healed from your abandonment and rejection.
I WILL NOT LEAVE YOU COMFORTLESS: I WILL COME TO YOU
Are you suffering from feelings and beliefs of abandonment and rejection—feeling left, forsaken, or pushed aside?
Where have this abandonment and rejection entered your life for the very first time? I bless you to go back to that place and invite God to replace that empty spot in your heart with His very own Presence IN you—the Comforter.
PRAYER: Lord God, I open my heart to You. I submit this empty spot of abandonment and rejection in my heart, along with the circumstances through which it formed in my heart, to You. Come and fill my heart with Your Presence.
Maintain an Awareness
Often times, we use the same defense mechanisms we saw our parents or other authority figures use, during our childhood lives. If they hid behind a smile to pretend that everything was OK, we learned to do the same.
