Hope Notes – It is better?! – Nov 20,2011

I love Jesus/Yeshua!
If you know me at all you know that is the center of my heart!
You know I love Him!

I think often about what it will be like to be with Him someday. I think what it would have been like to be here with Him on this earth….
I play one of my favorite songs and I think about how glorious it will be someday, when we are joined with Him in the heavens!! “Will I sing Hallelujah? Will I even be able to speak at all….”

I love Him. He is my Rock. There are no words for it, my heart sometimes is so full with it that I can only worship Him with tears….Just think of it………

Well you get the idea! πŸ™‚
So when I see this next scripture, I’m often taken aback…

John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.

WHAT?! It’s better if He leave?! How can that be!!!
My mind struggles to wrap around it, but it’s truth, so my mind must come into obedience to it.
How can this be?!

It is better for us to have the Helper, the Holy Spirit, than to have walked with Jesus while He was on this earth.

Today, I learned that my son’s best friend died suddenly. To hear the pain in my son’s voice from so far away was almost more than I could bear. As I loved my son and mourned with him I could feel the Holy Spirit working in me and in my son. I had just been reading and studying the Word on this verse.. “It is better that I go…I will send Him to you..”
I was so very thankful for the Holy Spirit filling up my heart, and my son’s heart during this horrible time and that He had prepared me for the evening, just a few hours prior, in a way I hadn’t imagined.

It is better for us to have the Helper, the Holy Spirit, than to have walked with Jesus while He was on this earth.

Are you walking in that truth? I know I want to and I press into it to understand and have my mind renewed in this area more and more. There is power in knowing that the Holy Spirit was sent to you and in you! More power than when Yeshua walked on the earth….. to quote Rick Renner… Think about it……

Be blessed
