Living without Shadows


Help is defined as making it easier or possible for someone to do something by offering them your services or resources.

Jesus promised His first disciples that when He returned to the Father, He would send a Helper – the Holy Spirit.

When Jesus died, we gained an inheritance; all the resources of heaven are at our disposal. The Holy Spirit is the one who makes these resources real for us, He brings God’s presence.

For example, Adi and I were in a counselling situation recently. We needed God’s wisdom and asked the Holy Spirit to help us. He gave us supernatural discernment and led us to different Bible passages that proved to be key in dealing with the situation. Without the Helper’s help, we couldn’t have seen the person set free from emotional and mental bondage.

God helps us in our time of need whether that’s providing a job or helping you find a loo when you’re out. His help may not always come in the form we’re anticipating, but He is completely faithful. His thoughts are higher than ours and His ways are beyond finding out. He’s infinite. We can never understand Him. But we can trust Him.


  1. This is so true. It amazes me when we are directed to scriptures in ‘random’ ways to help in times of need. This happened to me twice within the last week and looking back, couldn’t have planned it with a concordance. What an amazing God.

      He is totally amazing Di, and we certainly wouldn’t have seen the freedom we saw without Him. x
