Last week I memorized Isaiah 9:6 and acknowledged God as the Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace.
This week, I want to further recognize the Holy Spirit as my Counselor (other translations read “Helper” or “Advocate”).
“But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
– John 14:26-27
“One of our greatest needs as women is to become women of the Word, so that our prayers, our responses, and our words are saturated with God’s way of thinking…Each of us should be able to use the Word effectively, not only in our worship and our own walk, but also in ministering to the needs of others. If we’re going to be women of the Word, we must make a priority of spending time daily in the Scripture – reading, studying, memorizing, meditating, personalizing, and praying it back to God – letting Him teach us His ways.”
