THE SOURCE OF OUR HELP

May 6, 2024

2 Corinthians 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.

As children of God, we constantly need divine help to fulfil the kingdom mandate upon our lives.

This help can only be accessed through having fellowship with the Holy Spirit.

Why do we need divine help?

We need divine help because we are incomplete and full of infirmities. (Romans 8:26)

Not that we are SUFFICIENT OF OURSELVES to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; [6] Who also hath MADE US ABLE MINISTERS of the new testament;… 2 Corinthians 3:5-6 (KJV)

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also HELPETH OUR INFIRMITIES: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. (KJV)

We are full of infirmities in all areas of our lives. That is why God has given us the Holy Spirit who helps us to wipe out our insufficiencies (inabilities) and make us able ministers.

Where does our help come from?

Psalms 121:1-2 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. [2] MY HELP COMETH FROM THE LORD, which made heaven and earth.

God is the source of our help.That is why we have to look to Him alone for any help that we will ever need. Matthew 19:26

However, God traffics His help through men. (Jeremiah 1:5)

A good example is when God wanted to take away the sins of Israel, He trafficked His help through John. John 1:6-9

We do not just need help but both help and the Helper.

John 15:26 (AMPC) But when the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, Whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth Who comes (proceeds) from the Father, He [Himself] will testify regarding Me.

The Holy Spirit is our Helper who constantly delivers this divine help and customizes it according to our specific needs.

Ask the Holy Spirit to help you to keep in fellowship with God and access the help that is available to you.

Further Study
Ephesians 4:4-6, Isaiah 9:6

God manifests as Father, Son and Holy Spirit but no matter the dimension He appears in, He will deliver the needed help.

Isaiah 59:1-2 and Romans 3:23

We were cut off from this divine help when we sinned but our Father’s love brought us to remembrance (John 1:17 and John 3:16)

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
