ANOTHER DIVINE HELPER

John 14:16-18 (KJV)

 

                “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may                     abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive,                       because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth                         with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.”

 

Reflect:

Have you ever wished you had an emergency 911 number that rang in heaven whenever you had a need? Well, I have good news for believers. We all have divine assistance that’s even closer than a phone call: our Helper dwells within us. But if we are unaware of Him, we’ll miss many opportunities to benefit from the greatest asset in our Christian life—the Holy Spirit’s presence.

 

Christ knew that when He left the earth, His disciples would be totally inadequate for the task He was giving them—to evangelize the world. Though they’d spent three years with Jesus, all they had seen and learned would still not sufficiently equip them for what lay ahead. They needed supernatural help, and so do we—someone who will come to our aid, empower our service, and transform us from the inside out. The Holy Spirit is the only one who can achieve all this.

Consider His qualifications:

1. He is a personal Helper, not some inanimate force. God’s Spirit is a member of the Trinity and coequal with both the Father and Jesus Christ

(1 John 5:7).

 

2. He is a practical Helper who involves Himself in every aspect of our lives (John 14:26).

 

3. He is an adequate Helper because He’s omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent (Romans 15:13).

 

4. He is an available Helper who permanently lives within us (John 14:16).

There are not many things in the world that could trouble the Son of Man. But one trial really did weigh on Him – being separated from God. Yet, out of His love for His Father, out of His deep love for us, He still boldly went onto the Cross (Rom.5:8 / Phil.2:8).

Do you have any need that requires more power than omnipotence? Are you facing a decision that requires more knowledge than omniscience? Nothing we encounter is bigger than the omnipresent One who lives within us.

Be calm and confident. No matter what challenges you face, He can help.

 

Prayer:

 

Blessed Holy Spirit, you’re the most misunderstood part of Trinity. Thank you that You are with us and in us in all our challenges in life. Thank you that by the will of God in the name of Jesus, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, we can conquer all tough challenges and trials in life and come out victorious through Your help. We praise and thank the Lord Jesus for sending You to us as our helper. In His Name l pray, Amen.
