When Jesus was leaving He said that He will send the Holy Spirit as another helper like Jesus was to His disciples – Jn 14:16. The phrase another helper is translated from the Greek phrase Allos Parakletos. The full meaning of this phrase is another one of the same kind. In the same way that someone wearing a black round neck t-shirt can give you another round black neck t-shirt. If he gave you a t-shirt that was of a different color or style of neck it would not be another t-shirt of the same kind. Jesus was effectively saying that just as He was a guide, intercessor, companion, mentor, teacher, friend, prophet, etc. to the disciples the Holy Spirit would be the same to us.
In order for the Holy Spirit to help you, you must give him the permission; you must allow Him to help you. He lives inside of you but He will not suppress your will. In order for Him to move on your behalf then you must consciously allow Him. One of the ways that the Holy Spirit is meant to help us is in our prayers. There are so many things that we pray for. However there are so many more things that you should be praying for that you don’t even know of. This is where the Holy Spirit comes in. God has given us access to a supernatural language. The Holy Spirit guides you to pray appropriately as you pray using this supernatural language.
So in order to maximize your life and live to your fullest potential you will have to yield to the supernatural help from the Holy Spirit. To do otherwise is to live a limited life. If there was no value to His help, Jesus would not have sent Him to us. I want to encourage you today to allow the Holy Spirit to help you in every area of your life. Consciously ask for His help and assistance and be sensitive to His promptings. As you do so you will enjoy outstanding results – Job 32:8 & 1 Jn 2:20.
