Holy Spirit Our Helper
by Diana Scothorn
The Holy Spirit is the most incredible soul winner of all soul winners! He knows what it takes to get those we love saved! He knows how to send laborers (people He sends to minister God’s love) to reach them. He knows where they are, mentally and spiritually, at all times! He knows how to FIND them, how to REACH them, and to LOVE them!
There is someone dear to our hearts that my husband and I have been interceding on her behalf. This young woman lives a promiscuous life beneath her worth and is in a state of deception. Her pursuit of fame and success has driven her acceptance from the world, regardless of how she gets it.
Of course, she is not aware of it because that is what deception does. Deception is defined as an untrue falsehood or the act of lying or tricking someone. Satan is the master of lies. He preys on our emotions and convinces us it is good when it is not good at all!
We have been praying God would…
…surround her with Godly influence in her industry. She does not even know we are praying for her. We don’t live in the same state or have communication, but we daily communicate with the Lord on her behalf.
So many times, when we pray for those we love day after day, with no evidence of change, you begin to think your prayer is of no avail! James 5:16 says, “the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” That means while we pray, Holy Spirit is working.
We are to believe God at His Word, not going by our feelings, which mean absolutely nothing, because it’s not about what we CAN or CAN NOT SEE, and the Bible calls it being double-minded. James 1:8 says, “a double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.” When we pray in faith, we discard what we feel and we choose to trust God, despite what our feelings are telling us.
Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” This means we believe in God even if we have no evidence to support our belief. I’ve learned through God’s Wisdom not to allow my feelings to vote!
Recently I saw one of her Facebook posts where she was introduced to someone she was promoting. She watched his podcast on the brain and was intrigued by the factual scientific explanation of having a healthy brain. She does not know; however, his teaching is based on principles with the underlying foundation on the Word of God.
Romans 12:2 says, we are not to be conformed to this world, but transformed by the renewing of our mind, that you may prove what is good and acceptable. That means when our thoughts are aligned with God; our life will go in the right direction.
We are to reprogram our brain to think thoughts that agree with God’s thoughts. When our brains are rewired, we think healthy thoughts, which produces a healthy attitude, which inspires exercise, eating healthy, and good sleep habits!
Ultimately a healthy brain helps us to think and respond differently and, in turn, make healthy choices for our future. My husband and I took this as a seed of confirmation that even when we think nothing is happening, the Holy Spirit is working behind the scenes! It is only a seed, but this seed is the “Beginning” of the “Finished Work” of God!
The Holy Spirit can save us from anything we need to be protected from. He can save our family, financial debt, broken marriages, lost children, addictions, sickness, and eternal darkness! Thank You, Jesus!
The Holy Spirit is gentle, kind, comforting, and will never harm us! He knows where we hurt and the exact way to tend to our wounds! The Holy Spirit’s job is to win souls; our job is to INTERCEDE and BELIEVE!
I want you to be encouraged to keep praying and believing for your family and friends’ salvation! The Holy Spirit is behind the scenes working on your behalf!
The Holy Spirit knows how to get the job done! As we continue to pray, we are able to stand front and center and boldly declare by faith, “As for me and my house, we all serve the Lord.”
