THERE’S HELP FOR YOU
SATURDAY 4TH FEBRUARY, 2023.
And it came to pass, when God helped the Levites that bare the ark of the covenant of the Lord, that they offered seven bullocks and seven rams (1 Chronicles 15:26).
The Bible tells us how David got some Levites to move the ark of God into a place he had prepared for it in Jerusalem. But something striking that we observed is that the Bible says, “…God helped the Levites that bare the ark of the covenant of the Lord….” Isn’t it amazing?
Though the Levites were called to bear the ark, God helped them to carry out their ministry. God also helped a man named Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah. He had gone to battle against the Syrians in alliance with Ahab, the king of Israel. Having no idea that Jehoshaphat was in the battle, the king of Syria instructed his commanders to go after Ahab, the king of Israel.
“Don’t fight anyone else; just go after King Ahab andkill him,” he told them. When his men saw Jehoshaphat, they thought he was the king of Israel and cornered him. But the Bible says, “…Jehoshaphat cried out, and the LORD helped him; and God moved them to depart from him” (2 Chronicles 18:31).
The Bible also tells us about a young king, Uzziah, who started out as a teenager. He was responsible for several inventions and technological transformation of Judah. The Bible specifically says that he was marvellously helpedof the Lord until he became strong (2 Chronicles 26:15).
Isn’t this and more what we have today in the Holy Spirit that lives in us? He’s your helper! Is there anything you’re trying to achieve? Or are you experiencing some form of trouble? There’s supernatural help available for you.
The Holy Spirit is in you to help you in ministry, in business, in your finances and relationships. He’ll move trouble away from you just as He moved Jehoshaphat’s enemies away. He’ll give you creative ideas that’ll make your name spread abroad. You’re not disadvantaged in any way; the Helper is in you, and that’s the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah!
Dear Holy Spirit, I acknowledge you as my Helper; you’re always with me and in me. You’re my refuge and strength. I’m yielded to you, to be led, guided, strengthened and taught the things of the Kingdom of God. I’m rightly positioned in the centre of God’s perfect will because I’m under your influence and sway every day of my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
John 14:16ⁿ AMPC) And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever
Romans 8:26 (AMPC)So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.
