  • The Trinity: My Helper
    So we may boldly say: ‘The LORD is my helper;
    I will not fear. What can man do to me?
    Hebrews 13:6
    Hear, O LORD, and have mercy on me;
    LORD, be my helper!
    Psalm 30:10
    The Lord is your Helper; He is the One who comes alongside to assist you in doing what you can’t do. In other cases, the Lord assists you in doing what you should do but you don’t want to do. All three persons of the Trinity are your Helpers: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. First, the Father is your Helper. Psalm 30:8 describes, “I cried out to You, O Lord.” The Lord did not ignore the cry, nor did the Lord leave that person unfulfilled when he cried, “Lord, be my helper” (Psalm 30:10). Second, Jesus is your Helper in danger or trouble; He “will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). Since the Father and Son will help us, we should not fear what our enemies can do.
    Lord, You are my Helper; I can’t make it without You. Because You help me through trouble and frustration, I will trust You.
    Jesus promised us the Holy Spirit to help us (John 14:16, 26). The Helper helps us find salvation, regenerates us with the new birth, indwells us with His presence, baptizes us into the body of Christ, seals us until the Rapture, and guarantees our eternal life. The Holy Spirit will convict us of sin, teach us what we need to know, guide us, give us gifts for service, and fill us with power in our ministry.
    Lord, thank You for sending the Holy Spirit to help me find salvation. Thank You for the Holy Spirit who helps me in Christian service and uses me in ministry. Amen.
