A few nights ago, I wasn’t able to sleep. So I thought that I would finish some work for my church. I sat down to my computer, logged in, and the screen went black. I dropped my head in sorrow knowing that my completing this work was important. I tried numerous times to reboot my computer but nothing worked. It was without life. Then I thought about what God’s Word says.
“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—” John 14:16 NKJV
Why do I tell you all this? Isn’t this like our lives? We are broke down sometimes. We try and try and try but feel dead in our efforts. We’re lost. But God loves us so much that He gave.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 NKJV.
We also have access to our “helper”. Who resides in us to help and intercede for us to bring us back to life. Jesus is Alive and His Holy Spirit is in us ready to guide us along the path to fulfill God’s purpose.
Yes. My computer works again. Seems small and it is but the Holy Spirit not only helped me but took me through a life lesson. I pray you too will rest in the knowledge that the Holy Spirit is your helper, but there are so many people lost who are wandering around dead. We can show them the Way, the Truth, and the Life. And they too can receive from God eternal life and His Holy Spirit. They’re living with a black life but can be restored and come alive in Christ and be a bright beacon of love and hope to others.
Don’t believe me. Believe God!
