He’s Not Weird.

He’s Not Weird.
 
Things that ARE weird:

Balloons are so weird… “Happy birthday, here’s a plastic sack of my breath.” –Bill Murray

Eyebrows– “Eyebrows are so weird when you think about it, they’re just lines of hair on your face.” -Anonymous

Clapping– “When you think about it clapping is so weird. ‘Oh, I like what is happening right now let me smash my hands together to express my delight’.” -Anonymous

Those are just a few examples of weird things, and I am sure we can come up with so many more!! Weird means to “induce a sense of disbelief or alienation in someone.”

The Holy Spirit. He’s NOT Weird.

In fact, based on the definition of making something weird, he is the opposite. He does not induce disbelief, instead he brings confidence. He does not alienate, he is close and eliminates feelings of isolation. He is not weird, he is God, and our gift to connect us to a creator that we cannot speak with or see.

The Holy Spirit convicts and comforts, affirms and denies. I see him as my mirror. As decisions are made, or thoughts are considered, he will reflect me to myself saying “How does that decision look to you?”, or “How does that feeling look on you?”. When I am insecure, he will hold up a mirror and say, “You are fearfully and wonderfully made” (

Psalm 139:14). When I am afraid, he will hold up a mirror and say, “You do not have a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7)

He is our reflection of ourselves and of God simultaneously. He can show us what we look like in a moment by convicting us, and at the same time display the will of God to reassure us. He is our conscience, our confirmation, our teacher and most importantly our friend. He will never leave us alone, or ask us to try to decipher this life’s ups and downs without aid.

If we ask him to, he will be by our side through every single moment, forever.

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.” – John 14:26
