Holy Spirit–Counselor and Power

The Lord Jesus called the Holy Spirit the "Counselor." The Holy Spirit is like a personal friend and teacher who can guide us any time, without having to make an appointment. He is with us forever, if we live by the Lord's words.

This Counselor teaches us to understand the truth, for he is the Spirit of Truth. "When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth" (John ). The Spirit opens our limited understanding, so we can comprehend God's will and ways, for "no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God" (1 Corinthians ).

Because the Holy Spirit enables us to know God's will and truth, he is able to help us pray effectively. "And he who searches the hearts of men knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God" (Romans ). Praying with tongues benefits ourselves, much more so than if we pray with our limited words.

The Holy Spirit also gives us God's power. The power to transform our lives. The power over temptations. The power to witness for Christ. "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth." (Acts 1:8).
