What do you do when you lack the ability to do what you want? Hopefully, you will ask for help. However, if you are stubborn, you probably won’t. You would rather fail than lower yourself to ask for assistance. One of those two thoughts describes all of us. Ask for help or struggle is the dilemma.
The Holy Spirit is always accessible because he is always with you (John 14:16).
Christians can be stubborn, but believers have a divine resource, the Holy Spirit, who resides within us. Because he lives inside of you, he can help you in the following ways:
The third person of the Trinity has a way of guiding you like no one else (John 16:13b). No one can teach you as well as He.
The Spirit knows when we need help. So, He prays for us in a way that we cannot pray for ourselves (Romans 8:26, 27).
God’s Spirit shows us what is true in demanding situations (John 16:13a).
Lastly, the abiding Holy Spirit opens our eyes to speak about the Lord Jesus (John 15:26). Jesus promises never to leave us or abandon us (Hebrews13:5).
It’s one thing to know the Bible’s truth. It’s quite another to appropriate it into our lives. Of course, it helps to read our Bible. But, applying scriptures to our lives is entirely different. Practicing biblical principles allows us to enrich others.
Individuals willing to venture out by faith will find the Lord guiding them. The choice is ours to walk into the unknown by faith or hold on to the handrails of experience. There’s a difference between a pat on your back or to hear the words well done by the Savior.
