The Spirit Of The Lord
25: He Helps Us
In the same way the Spirit also comes to help us, weak as we are. For we do not know how we ought to pray; the Spirit himself pleads with God for us in groans that words cannot express. Romans 8:26
The Holy Spirit is also called the helper. He is also the comforter. The Bible says, “weak as we are.” This means that no matter how much we try to forget it, we are weak beings that need help. But where does our help come from? Our help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.
This realization and reality is what will motivate us to constantly rely on the Lord for help and the Lord on earth is the Holy Spirit. We constantly ignore Him and try to do it on our own but consider this. Would Jesus have promised and sent His Spirit – the Holy Spirit if we could succeed in life and Christian walk without Him. He is our powerhouse and without Him, we can do nothing.
Jesus went on to say, “In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me.” John 16:16
Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. John 16:17
Jesus promised to come back and be with us as the Holy Spirit. We need Him – His help and His comfort. If we do not desire help and ask for help, we are proud and will not receive help. We must constantly approach the throne of grace to receive help and mercy in time of need
May we realize and confess our absolute need for Him and constantly ask for help until we get to the fullness of grace where great things happen. May great grace be upon us like it was with the apostles. This great grace can only come through the Holy Spirit, the Spirit Of grace.
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16
As we fellowship with the Holy Spirit and minister to Him in dependence and need. He will reveal Himself fully to us. Come Lord Jesus.
