HOLY SPIRIT: OUR HELPER AND INTERCESSOR

TEXT: ROMANS 8:26-27
In the same way the Spirit helps us in our weakness; we do not know what we ought to pray for, but the spirit himself intercedes for us with Groans that words cannot express. And he who searches the heart knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will. (Romans 8: 26-27).
Everybody needs help to be able to do one thing or the other, there are some things that you may find difficult to do with your level of knowledge, wisdom or strength. There are some things you may not know how to do right or perfectly with your ability, unless we ask for assistance from somebody that knows better than us.
As Christians, our strength, knowledge and wisdom are limited, so we need the help of the unlimited God to do all things. Our weakness may be in the area of prayer, enduring hardship, wisdom to run our homes, strength to go through our Christian journey, the grace to put our flesh into subjection and living in holiness, getting out of any bad habits and so on. The Holy Spirit is our ever present help in time of trouble; he will never leave us to ourselves. He has promised to be with us to the very end of age. (Matthew 28:20). It is a difficult thing to know what to pray about when you are weak and distressed, but the Holy Spirit our helper and our intercessor has made provision for our weakness, he is ready to take over our prayer session and intercede on our behalf in accordance to God’s will. When you pray amiss; you may not receive answer to your prayers (James 4:3). That is why the Holy Spirit is taking it upon himself to pray and intercede on our behalf so that we would receive answers to our prayers. When we need strength to face the challenges of life and to carry on our Christian race without failing God, the Holy Spirit is there to renew our strength and replace our weakness with God’s strength. (2 Corinthians 12:9). When you need divine wisdom to run your home and business, he is willing to endow you with wisdom. (James 1: 5).
When you need the grace to put your flesh into subjection, His grace is available for you. “Let us approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”(Hebrew 4:16). Call on your helper today, for without him you can do nothing. (John 15:5).
