John 14:25 “All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 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. 27 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.
Advocate: one who pleads the cause of another, defends and maintains a proposal and supports the interests of the cause.
The Word is so much more than just words. It is the place God captures our hearts through our mind. There is only one condition: you must accept that the Lord has placed His Advocate in your heart to begin the process of training your mind to first go to “He will” before it goes to that other place, “I should” which has a very different manager.
2 Peter 1:12 So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have.
“We let our mind descend into our heart and
there stand in the presence of God.”
