“Beloved. When you don’t know where to turn, turn to Me, My Child. I AM He who stands at your side.
I AM He who sticks closer than a brother. I have provided a Heavenly Attorney for you, the Advocate, the Paraklete. In the world, a lawyer can be expensive.
And they do not possess all knowledge or know your situation. But know this, My Child. You have an Advocate who abides with you and in you.
You have a Heavenly Lawyer, The Paraklete, who knows you and your circumstances intimately. The Price has been paid.
At your new birth, I sent My Spirit into your heart to dwell with you forever. Who will bring any charge against God’s elect? It is I who justifies.
Who is there to condemn you? For Christ Jesus, who died, and more than that was raised to life, is at the right hand of God — and He is interceding for you.
The Spirit does not join you in the pit of despair but He will pull you out of it. He will not agree with words of fear, but He will BUILD UP your faith.
He will not tear down, but He will fortify you and strengthen you. When you do not know what to pray, the Spirit Himself intercedes for you with groanings too deep for words.
The Spirit is the Advocate, the One who stands beside you. He will always make the right judgment call on your behalf.
When all hell comes against you, and accusations fly from the mouth of the enemy, it is He who defends you.
We are ONE, Beloved. Abba Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit and YOU. If your God be for you, who can stand against you?
You are never alone, My Child. I have made the call in your favor. The Spirit of Truth stands by your side in every situation. By Grace you are saved and by Grace, I AM your Defender.
For I came into the world, not to condemn but to save. There is now therefore no condemnation in Christ Jesus. I have never lost a case, Dear One.
Who shall bring a charge against My Elect? It is I who has justified you.
The Advocate will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have told you. Peace I leave with you; My Peace I give to you.
I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled; do not be afraid.
Believe My Report. Let Me defend you, Beloved. Let the Wonderful Gracious Counselor do the work that you cannot do by yourself.
You no longer walk after the flesh, but by My Spirit. The Advocate is fighting for you and the outcome is already decided in your favor! It is finished!”
