The Holy Spirit: Our Helper

‘And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— ‘ John 14:16

‘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 depart, I will send Him to you.’ John 16:7

When Jesus concluded His earthly ministry, He promised to send us a Helper – The Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit’s assignment is important because it’s through His ministry that Jesus entrusted the continuity of His work to believers not because we have the capacity on our own, but through His help.

As the Holy Spirit’s help is so vital to our journey, then we must understand what He helps us with. Most times we think of Him in terms of helping us pray, but there is so much more to Him and His role in our lives. This series we are diving into some of the ways the Holy Spirit helps believers to be all Jesus desires us to be. Click Here to download the series.

The Holy Spirit Our Security In Famine

‘…And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.’ Matthew 24:7

‘What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.’ Ecclesiastes 1:9

‘They will not be disgraced in hard times; even in famine they will have more than enough.’ Psalms 37:19

All the way from Genesis through to Revelation the Bible speaks of different occurrences of famines which impacted people to varying degrees. In Matthew 24, Jesus Himself tells us that the last days will witness multiple famines – which can also be termed recessions in today’s context. And we are seeing a lot of this across the globe today.

While famines/recessions today and onwards will have their nuances, we know for certain that they will come. Our prayer as we delve into how to prepare for what is to come or already happening in some environments is that the Holy Spirit helps us understand what happened in the past, how best to position for what is to come and that He guides us through such seasons when they come so we are not overwhelmed.
