I am thankful for the Holy Spirit, the Comforter from God. God has graciously given Him to His children for guidance, illumination, conviction, and comfort. I can imagine the Disciples’ confusion each time Christ foretold of the looming betrayal and death which He would soon experience. And yet, He also told them about the Comforter Whom God would leave with them. I’m reminded of this privilege daily.
Over the last few days I’ve read about Joseph’s reuniting with his brothers. What a lovely picture of grace! I wept as I read of Joseph weeping, and trying to restrain his tears, or be out of sight when overwhelmed. I thank God that I still am touched by Scripture. Thank You, Lord.
