Holy Spirit is the third person in the Trinity – which is Father God, Jesus his Son, and Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit is fully God. He is omniscient, which means He knows everything, and He’s omnipresent which means He is constantly encountered. Although Holy Spirit is described as Wind, Fire or a White Dove, He is none of these. Holy Spirit is a person and not merely a force.

Lucia references the teachings of the Apostle Paul about the role of Holy Spirit in our lives as a Helper or Enabler, Teacher, Comforter, Witness and Guide. He is also the Spirit of Creativity.

Jesus knew that not only the disciples would need help after He went to Heaven, but that we would need help, also. In John 14:16 Jesus taught us, “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you.” Some Bible translations call Holy Spirit the Comforter, Counselor, or Helper in this verse.

Holy Spirit uses various pictures of Himself in the Bible, like water, fire, or wind, to reveal His works, His nature and various qualities about Himself. But most importantly, Holy Spirit will come to you the way you need Him the most.

He can come as a gentle Nurturer, like a mother who cares for her children. He can come as a brilliant and articulate Advisor when you’re facing a difficult decision or situation. He can come as a comforting Healer when you need physical healing in your body, or you have mental scars from a tormenting battle. And, if you need a friend, He’s a friend that sticks closer than a brother. You can trust Holy Spirit to reveal specific wisdom for your situation so you can live an overcoming, victorious life!
