Meditation on John 14:16-18

“I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor [“Paraclete”: Comforter, Encourager, Advocate] to be with you forever – the Spirit of truth… You know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you (John 14:16-18).

1st Reading: What is one word or phrase the Holy Spirit impresses on you? Meditate on that.

2nd Reading: Enter into the Scripture passage. What do you feel? What specific situation in your life today relates? Write down a prayer or pray quietly.

3rd Reading: What is God's personal invitation for you from the Scripture? You can write down what God may be saying to you or a prayer of thanks. Or rest quietly in God.

LORD SPIRIT and LIVING Messiah Jesus; I need you to be my counselor, comforter, encourager, and advocate today. Bring me truth. Come to me today. Let me be aware of YOUR presence over me, around me, and in me. Help me feel adopted and not abandoned. Amen

You are adopted not abandoned
