Jason wailed as his parents handed him over to Amy. It was the two-year-old’s first time in the nursery while Mom and Dad attended the service—and he was not happy. Amy assured them he’d be fine. She tried to soothe him with toys and books, by rocking in a chair, walking around, standing still, and talking about what fun he could have. But everything was met with bigger tears and louder cries. Then she whispered five simple words in his ear: “I will stay with you.” Peace and comfort quickly came.
Jesus offered His friends similar words of comfort during the week of His crucifixion: “The Father . . . will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth” (John 14:16–17). After His resurrection He gave them this promise: “Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). Jesus was soon to ascend to heaven, but He would send the Spirit to “stay” and live within His people.
We experience the Spirit’s comfort and peace when our tears flow. We receive His guidance when we’re wondering what to do (John 14:26). He opens our eyes to understand more of God (Ephesians 1:17–20), and He helps us in our weakness and prays for us (Romans 8:26–27).
He stays with us forever.

Jason wailed as his parents handed them over to Amy. It was the two-year-olds first time in the nursery while mom and dad attended the service and he was not happy. Amy assured them he be fine.
She tried to soothing the toys and books by rocking in a chair walking around standing still and talking about what fun you could have, but everything was met with bigger tears and louder cries. Then she whispered five simple words in his ear. I will stay with you. Peace and comfort quickly came in John chapter 14, Jesus offered his friend similar words of comfort during the week of his crucifixion. The father will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever. The spirit of truth.
After his resurrection, he gave them this promise in Matthew chapter 28 surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Jesus was soon to ascend to heaven, but he would send the spirit to stay and live with in his people.
We experience the spirits comfort and peace when our tears flow. We received his guidance when were wondering what to do.
He opens our eyes to understand more of God and he helps us in our weakness and prays for us.
He stays with us forever. Today is Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from John chapter 14 verses 15 through 21 and 25 through 27.
If you love me, keep my commands and I will ask the father and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever. The spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me because I live, you also will live on that day you will realize that I am in my father and you are in me and I am in you. Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me the one who loves me will be loved by my father and I too will love them and show myself to them, and now verses 25 to 27 all this I have spoken while still with you, but the advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Let's pray dear God, we thank you for your promise that if we love you.
You will never leave us, and that your presence is always with us through your spirit. Thank you for always remaining by our side. It's in Jesus name we pray. Amen. Today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
