Hey y’all, I just can’t fathom why God would lean down to speak to me! Day 7 provided some needed insight, and now, the Lord of the Universe goes and does it again! As a child of the King, every spiritual gift that is waiting to be had is not just for the elite, or spiritual, or educated, or white, brown, or black~ The King eternal loves YOU and ME so much He died for YOU and ME. But not wanting to leave us alone, He sent His Helper to YOU and ME. And if you are His child, He has provided everything you need to be a success.
I am always amazed at His patience and willingness to take baby-steps with me, always drawing me to Himself and clearing the cobwebs away so I can see and know Him more fully. And, experience Him like never before!
“The Helper will be with you and in you…” (John 14:17).
David, the author of most of the Psalms, cried out to God, “O Lord, be Thou my helper” (Psalm 30:10). He also reminded himself and his people, “God is my Helper; The Lord is the sustainer of my life” (Psalm 54:4). “The Lord is on my side as my helper” (Psalm 118:7).
Recognizing I can’t is what the Spirit, our Helper, longs to hear.
Man’s help is more a one-size-fits-all, but God relates to us and helps us as individuals, each unique in His sight. God is intensely personal with us. He gives me what I need, which is different than what you may need.
In our culture, we often believe we are more advanced and much smarter than previous generations. Truth is our hearts and our self-will—the flesh—remain equally depraved and utterly unchanged.
Jesus said it this way: “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all” (John 6:63). So why would we rely on ourselves or anyone else over the Holy Spirit who has the answers and help for this life?
Our emotions and thinking can be fed by the whispered lies of our enemy. Or our minds and hearts can be fed by our Helper who uses God’s Word to strengthen us, to shield us from enemy fire, to provide solutions to our many needs, to heal us, to remind us of His great love and His ever near presence. He will be your Victory!
“Thus says the Lord who made you, who formed you from the womb and will help you; For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust” (Psalm 103:14). Because of His great love, He is eager to be our help, every day in countless situations and circumstances if we will ask.
