Story of the day: fighting the good fight
In the book Healing the Masculine Soul, Gordon Dalbey says:
When Jesus refers to the Holy Spirit as the Helper, He uses a Greek word, Paraclete, that was an ancient warrior’s term.
Greek soldiers went into battle in pairs, so when the enemy attacked, they could draw together back-to-back, covering each other’s blind side. One’s battle partner was the Paraclete.
Quote of the day: Tom Tripp
“Our Lord does not send us to fight the good fight alone. The Holy Spirit is our battle partner who covers our blind side and fights for our well-being.”
Bible verse of the day: John 14:16 (NIV)
“And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever.”
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for sending the Holy Spirit, my Helper, Whom is always there ready to be my battle partner in this good fight. May I never get the attitude that I can do anything on my own, for I know that all that I have and do comes from You. I love You and thank You for this blessed day!
In Jesus Name I pray,
