If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever. John 14:15-16
You need help. We all do. This isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a spiritual reality. And it is why God has given the holy Spirit to indwell us. In fact, telling us about His provision was Jesus’ way of informing us of one of the most profound truths concerning the Christian life, it’s impossible. The life Jesus expects from His followers in unattainable apart from His intervention.
This is good news for you today. God doesn’t expect you to face what’s before you on your own. He knows it’s unfeasible in your strength, so He sends His Holy Spirit to do His work in you, empowering you, conforming you to the image of Christ, and guiding you in your daily life.
So what should you do? Be aware of His presence and activity how He convicts you of sin, prompts you to act, and enables you supernaturally with wisdom, energy, and talent you don’t have within yourself. When you know what to look for, you’ll be amazed at how real the Holy Spirit will become to you. So accept the help that’s been given you and rejoice that the One who accompanies you can handle anything.
