the Holy Spirit is our Helper

“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you” (John 14:16-17).

Help is Here

As I worshipped God this morning, I thought about the millions in need of help to recover from coronavirus. Life’s problems are pushing many people to their breaking point. In a world filled with darkness, people are worried about violence, their health, and paying their bills. Many people who have never needed assistance are standing in food lines for their next meal. Our nation needs healing. Despite what we are going through, it is refreshing to know that God answers prayer, and we have an ever-present Helper.

Lifting my hands in worship, I began to worship God and thank Him for sending the Helper to help, counsel, intercede, advocate, and strengthen me in times of trouble. The Bible says that Jesus helped everyone who implored Him for help. “Great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all” (Matthew 12:15). Friends, I want you to know that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. That means He is still helping those who call on Him for help.

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth, and He will be with us forever. However, people of the world cannot receive Him because they do not know Him. But if you belong to Christ, the Holy Spirit lives with you and in you, and He will be with you forever. In a world filled with lies and uncertainties, we can look to Him for truth and guidance. So whatever you need help with, be it health, finances, friendships, drug addiction, or family, the Holy Spirit is available to help you.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, I thank You for the gift of Your Holy Spirit. I acknowledge Him as my Helper and my Counselor. Today, I pray that Your Holy Spirit will guide me in truth and intercede for me throughout the day. I trust that Your Holy Spirit will be my defense against the schemes of the devil. Thank You for Your strength and wisdom. I pray that You will keep me safe, healthy, and secure throughout the day. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Greetings in Jesus ‘ name

“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jeremiah 33:3

Prayer is fellowship with the Unseen and Most Holy God. It is the essence of true religion and the channel of all blessings. It is the secret of power and life not only for ourselves, but for others, for the Church and for the world. God has given the right to take hold of Him and His strength to prayer. The promises wait for their fulfillment.
If you ask, He will be delighted to take you to closer fellowship with Himself and teach you to pray.

Recovery From Emotional/Psychological Trauma

Emotional trauma is the result of stressful events that shatter your sense of security, making you feel helpless in a dangerous world; it can leave you struggling with memories and anxiety that won’t go away.
Emotional/psychological trauma could be caused by accident, injury, an unexpected violent attack, living in a neighboring known for crime, battling a life threatening illness; it could also be as a result of experiencing traumatic events that occur repeatedly like domestic violence, sexual abuse, bullying, loneliness, and addiction. It could also be caused by the sudden death of a loved one or deeply disappointing experience.

What are the symptoms of trauma?
*Anxiety and panic attacks; anger and irritability
*Fear, emotional numbing,depression and confusion
*Racing heart beats, mood swings, muscle tension and agitation
*Shame, guilt, feelings of sadness and hopelessness
*Fatigue, feeling of worthlessness, withdrawing from people.
*Ache and pains, obsessions and feeling of being overwhelmed.

What do you do to recover from emotional trauma?
1. Don’t isolate: Make an effort to maintain your relationships and avoid spending too much time alone
2. You don’t have to talk about the trauma all the time
3. Participate in social activities.
4. Join a support group for trauma survivors: connecting with them help reduce the sense of isolation; and hearing how others cope could help in your own recovery.
5. Volunteer to help others: In fact, this is a great way to challenge the sense of hopelessness that often accompanies trauma. Remind yourself of your strengths and reclaim your sense of power by helping others.
6. Make new friends if you live far away from family and friends; and avoid toxic people.
7. Self regulate your nervous system: No matter how agitated, nervous, or out of control you feel; it’s important you know that you can calm yourself.
8. Take care of your health
9. Get plenty of sleep
10. Avoid alcohol and drugs as their use can worsen your trauma symptoms, and increase feelings of depression, anxiety and isolation.
11. Eat a well balanced diet to keep your energy up and minimize mood swings.
12. Reduce stress by relaxation techniques such as meditation, deep breathing exercises and schedule time for activities that bring joy to you such as your favorite hobbies.
13. Forgive all hurts and forget the past as this can also worsen the symptoms.

Recovery from trauma takes time, and everyone heals differently. So, avoid being negative or hard on yourself.

Beyond all the tips mentioned above, is the power of God to heal your broken heart and mend your broken life in Jesus’ name.

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
But, for you to be healed with His stripes, you need to be reconciled with Him.
Jesus is the only Mediator between God and man; and you can only be reconciled to God if you believe in Jesus; in what He accomplished on your behalf. What did He do? He, being the Son of God and the Mediator between you and God, paid the price of your iniquities(sin) by leaving His abode in Heaven, became flesh, at the appointed time, He was betrayed, crucified, died and was buried; but He rose on the third day granting victory to whoever believes in Him. He was sinless but He tasted death for you and me. He paid the ultimate price to grant us access to the Father and to His Kingdom because no one can access the Father without Him.
He says : “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man cometh to the Father but by me.” John 14:6
We can’t access God’s Kingdom with good works, morals and religious activities alone; they are not enough to save your soul and reconcile you with your Maker, because it is written: “For all have sinned, and have come short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23
So, you simply need to believe in Jesus, repent of your sin, and be saved
“Whosoever call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”
Talk to Him and He will heal you.
