What is a helper? To help someone is to aid someone. Do you ever feel like you need help with your chores, or with what ever you might be doing. How about in your Christian walk, do you need help with that? I do. All the time, every day and every minute of every day. I can never go alone in my Christian walk and neither can anyone else, even though they think they can, it will always be a failure, we just can't do it without our Helper.
That is why we have been offered a Helper, because God knows that we can't go it alone. I am so glad that He has been so kind as to supply us with all the help we need if we but ask for His assistance.
Romans 8:26 "Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered."
We may be weak and not even know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit takes over and helps in our weaknesses and turns our prayers into something beautiful before the Father. So take heart my friend and let the Spirit take over your life and mine and life will be so much better for the living.
John 14:16 "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever." He will be with us forever, did you get that. How great is that?
John 14:25,26 "These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. 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 things that I said to you."
You will never be left alone to fight the battle with the enemy, never. Only if you choose to go it alone.
The Holy Spirit is only a breath away, He is always near and ready to aid us in our battles of life. He comes to each of us individually, pleading with us to let Him help us. Are we willing to let Him in to dwell in us and do our battles for us. He is willing, are we?
Romans 8:1 "There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit."
We will not be condemned if we walk according to the Spirit and not according to the flesh, which is our carnal nature. Let's let the Holy Spirit overpower our carnal nature and be filled with his Spirit so that we can walk the walk of faith in Christ. Ask for His presence in your life and I will do the same and we can overcome together and be found faithful in the end. Grandma Joan
