Our Helper: A Pentecost Devotional

John 15:26 – “But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me.”

The Holy Spirit is not only your Guide, He is also your Helper. However, having a Helper does not mean you are void of any hardship. Daily, you are faced with hard decisions to make, but the good news is that your Helper can guide your steps by reminding you of who is really in charge. John 15:26 shows that Jesus fully intended for the Holy Spirit to bear witness to the things of God — to help you out when you cannot see God in the details of your circumstances. We are a fickle people, and often (when we don’t see God at work) we forget He is working. The Spirit helps you keep the faith and to remember God is always at work in your life. God is still on the throne. Jesus is still your Savior. The Spirit is here to help. All hope is not lost. Some of you may need this reminder today.

The Bible promises God will never leave you or forsake you, in good times or bad. While this is true, God never goes anywhere uninvited. Seek the Holy Spirit in prayer and in His Word every day. When you do, a chain reaction begins. The more you seek the Spirit for help, the more you learn about who God is and how He works. The more you understand God, the easier it will become to understand how He is speaking to you when the tough times come.

Pray today and ask the Holy Spirit to be your Helper. Seek Him in all things and in all ways. In every decision you make, thought you think, and word you say, trust the Holy Spirit to help show you the way.
