“…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 that I said to you…” —John 14:26 (NASB)

One thing that has become very common amongst believers today is that they are journeying through life without the help of the Holy Spirit. Whenever they need help, they go to man for help and when they don’t get the help they are looking for, they lose faith in God and in most cases, they get depressed, which shouldn’t be the case. You must understand that as far as life is concerned, there are lots of things that will seek to throw you off balance. There are lots of situations that would make you lose your faith in God but with the help of the Spirit of God, you won’t fall for such a situation. It is for this reason, the Father gave us the person of the Holy Spirit to be our helper, counsellor, teacher and all you can ever think of. But sadly, many are not taking advantage of His presence in their lives, in fact, one of the personalities that are greatly ignored today is the person of the Holy Spirit, which is not supposed to be so. God gave the Holy Spirit to us as a gift to be our helper in all things and at all times. Before our Lord Jesus Christ left this world, He said, “…I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever…” John 14:16 (NKJV). Did you see that?

Now, the helper our Lord Jesus Christ was talking about here is the Holy Spirit and today He lives in you. The question is would you lean on Him for help? Would you go to Him for counsel, direction and instruction? Well, you should because that is the purpose for which He has come to live in you. Give Him the chance to help you in your business, academics, family and other areas of your life that you will need His help. Stop trying to fix that problem alone, stop running up and down the place looking for someone to help you. Instead, go to the Holy Spirit for help and in due time, He would offer you a solution that will literally turn your situation around. You might say but I have tried to go to the Holy Spirit for help in the past but nothing came out of it. Well, it’s possible you weren’t patient enough. You must understand that when you are dealing with the Holy Spirit, you are dealing with God Himself. Therefore, you must be patient and attentive. Don’t try to rush Him, instead wait on Him for it is written, “…those who wait on the Lord that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint…” Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV)


Take advantage of the presence of the help of the Holy Spirit, partner with Him to have a fruitful experience in life.


Dear Lord, I thank you for giving me a helper in the Holy Spirit. I acknowledge today that I can’t do it all on my own, and therefore I declare that I will always rely on the Holy Spirit to help me and guide me in all things in Jesus name. Amen!
