“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever.” – John 14:16

Are you feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, or discouraged today? These are all natural feelings for our day and time. Things are going faster and faster and it is harder to keep up with it all. Recognizing the problem is one thing, but is there an answer? Yes, Jesus has it. The disciples had been through emotional trauma realizing that their hopes of positions in the kingdom were crushed and they were experiencing an awful loneliness as they realized Jesus was leaving them. Into that confusion and frustration Jesus said the Holy Spirit would be given as a gift now and forever. Today we are the temples of God and He lives in us by His Holy Spirit. He has planned our lives from before we were born. Today is part of that plan. Look to Him for direction and comfort. The Comforter was Jesus’ gift to His disciples in the middle of their frustration and He is Jesus’ gift to you today.
