“I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate … the Spirit of truth.” — John 14:16-17 NET
“It is to your advantage that I am going away. For if I do not go away, the Advocate will not come to you, but if I go, I will send him to you.”
The Spirit himself bears witness to our spirit that we are God’s children.—For you did not receive the spirit of slavery leading again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, “Abba, Father.”—The Spirit helps us in our weakness, for we do not know how we should pray, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with inexpressible groanings.
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe in him, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.—And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
By this we know that we reside in God and he in us: in that he has given us of his Spirit.

“I must find a home for you so you will be secure.” — Ruth 3:1 NET
Consequently a Sabbath rest remains for the people of God.—My people will live in peaceful settlements, in secure homes, and in safe, quiet places.-“-There the wicked cease from turmoil, and there the weary are at rest.”—“They can rest from their hard work.”
Jesus our forerunner entered on our behalf, since he became a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke on you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and my load is not hard to carry.”—“If you repented and patiently waited for me, you would be delivered; if you calmly trusted in me you would find strength.”
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He takes me to lush pastures, he leads me to refreshing water.
