The Comforter By Brenda Drake

            There is certain reverence deep within at the thought of a love as tender and as respectful as when Holy Spirit touches a life.  There is nothing as beautiful, or more enlightening or as satisfying.  One day we will have knowledge of the full picture of all the Holy Comforter has done to build and to enrich our lives. 

The Comforter

There is One that dwells near that you cannot see
He is the One that dries the tears for those set free.
He walks where Angels cannot tread;
He hears every word ever said.
This One is always kind and gentle to the aching heart.
He is the One that kindles loves fires to start.
He builds up and makes strong the damaged or weak.
He gives comfort to the soul that seeks.
This One comes at the whispered prayer;
And He truly cares.
His healing touch raises the dead.
He nourishes the starving underfed.
The Comforter is sent to you as a gift from above;
To prove and to show the Father’s love.
He speaks of Salvation and He lifts up Jesus’ name.
When Holy Spirit enters; a life is never again the same.
Sweet words of wisdom fill the mouth with praise;
Great is the thanks of a soul that has been saved.
For they are greatly assured of the work of the cross,
So great is the peace – no longer are they lost.
The Light of the Universe lives within,
For the Comforter has made residence in him.
You too are able to reach and give comfort to another lost soul.
God’s love from within now overflows.
The Comforter even now gives this word of rhyme to touch the ear
With some more comforting words for you to hear

John 14:6
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

Romans 15:13
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Revelations 2:29
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Bullied by the Accuser By Brenda Drake

Before I knew the grossness and the penalty of sin I had very little guilty feelings, but aftertruly desired to live right, I was harassed with feelings of inadequacy to measure up to God’s Word.   One day the Lord showed me the absurdity of this.  He loved and died for me before I loved Him. Why now when I love Him would He love me less?  He would never need the help of His enemy to tell me what I need to do. 

Bullied by the Accuser

The enemy points out small infractions and paints them,
Seemingly into large, gross, unforgivable sins.
He lays condemnation upon you as a burden to pack;
He keeps piling things heavy on your back.
He points out everything to cause you shame,
He loves to accuse and enjoys casting blame.
Critical, unloving, and judgmental without any grace,
He brings before you anything to disgrace.
The accuser has no right to blame you anymore;
For your every transgression is covered by the Lord.
Your worth is not measured by what you do or do not do.
Your worth is measured by who dwells inside of you.
If your own heart convicts thee;
Take heed but do not be bullied by the enemy.
He does not point out sin to those that he easily tempts,
He accuses the ones who desire to obey and repent.
For if he can persuade them they are still full of sin.
He causes great discouragement in them.
Walk each day doing the best you can.
Do the work of God the best you understand.
If you sin, quickly repent in prayer,
And know you are forgiven for your God truly cares.
When you hear a taunt that will not cease its noise in your ear,
Rebuke it and turn away from it and it will not stay near.
One day you will behold the one that caused your heart and mind so much strife.
And you will see how pitiful and how weak he is beside your Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelations 12:8
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
