You Are No Longer Alone

By Michael Youssef, Ph.D.

Read Exodus 14:19-22.

These days it seems everyone is looking for someone to follow. All you have to do is turn on the television, and you’ll see channel after channel filled with talking heads—experts with their opinions—telling viewers what to do. But there is only one guide for those who are new creations in Christ: the Holy Spirit of God, who speaks to us through the book that He authored. Every other guide will lead you astray.

When Moses led the Israelites across the Red Sea onto dry ground and then out into the wilderness, Scripture says there was a pillar of cloud by day and fire by night to show them the way. This cloud was symbolic of the Holy Spirit. And what does the Holy Spirit do? The New Testament says He is our Comforter, but He’s more than someone who offers a Kleenex and a pat on the back. The Greek word translated “Comforter” is also used to describe a warrior.

You see, Jesus did not leave us to fight life’s battles alone. Instead, He has given us a battle partner to cover our blind side. This is why no believer can say, “I am alone,” or, “I am comfortless,” or, “I am vulnerable.” For Jesus said, “When I go to the Father, I will send you the Holy Spirit. He will dwell in you and will be with you in each day’s battles. He’s your warrior, and He’s got your blind side.”

Prayer: Lord, thank You that You are with me to sustain me in life’s battles. Holy Spirit, move my heart to follow You and to build up my faith by feasting on Your Word. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

“Throughout the night the cloud brought darkness to the one side and light to the other side; so neither went near the other all night long” (Exodus 14:20).
