Counselor, Comforter: The Holy Spirit comforts, counsels, and gives strength
Paraclete is the Greek word behind this name. It refers to an advocate, someone called alongside to strengthen and fight on behalf of another.
The Holy Spirit is our strength and comfort. We are to turn to Him when we are in trouble and when we are weak, being assured that He intercedes with and for us.*
The quiet hour of prayer is one of the most favorable opportunities He has in which to speak to us seriously. In quietude and solitude before the face of God our souls can hear better than at any other time. O.Hallesby
When He gives quietness, who then can make trouble? Job 34.29
