The Lord gave us His promise to send us a helper -- the Holy Spirit. The word for *helper* in the NT Greek is *paraclete*. This word has more meaning then simply *helper* -- it was also an ancient term used in warfare. When Greek warriors went onto the battle field, they went out in pairs, so when the enemy attacked they could stand back-to-back, covering each other*s blind side. The battle partner in Greek was called a *paraclete* -- he was there to watch your back!
The Holy Spirit is more than our helper and comforter -- He*s our battle partner who covers our blind side and protects our well being.
You*re not in this fight alone. The Lord has given you a *paraclete* to go along with you. Don*t grieve Him -- listen carefully -- let Him lead as you fight the good fight of faith, and don*t worry about your blind side -- He*s got your back!
