There’s another lesson God has been wanting me to learn from the past many weeks of preparation for our Christmas production. That lesson I’ve hit upon in the past few days, but God was bringing it to mind again this morning as it relates to my everyday living. This is the point of God/Jesus/Holy Spirit being my Helper and not my lead. (This may sound trite to some, but to me it is a visual I’ve needed). All through scripture there are references to biblical characters asking for God’s help. In the New Testament Christ points out He will send The Holy Spirit who will Help. John 14:26 says, “But THE HELPER, the Holy Spirit, who the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”
God has been wanting me to learn that I don’t need to be replaced, I need to be helped. He never once intended for me to believe the lies I was fed. Help is what He wants me to ask for, not replacement. Believing, Trusting, having Faith are the big ingredients for being HELPED. I was believing I couldn’t be helped enough, I needed to be replaced and that’s the big lie. This morning I asked God to HELP me believe as He wants me to believe from this day forward. As I said yesterday, it will be one day at a time and one moment at a time. I’m ready to be a new creation who believes better than I’ve ever believed before!
