Your Blind Side is Covered!

John 14:26 But the Helper [Paraclete], the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

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!
