If you have the Holy Spirit, you have more than an army on your side. When the Holy Spirit helps us, He ensures that we are marvellously helped until we are strong. When we say the Holy Spirit is our helper, we should know what that help does not include:
1.He is not a replacement for our common sense.
Many have lost in life because once they got the baptism of the Holy Spirit and began to speak in tongues, they stopped thinking and assumed that they have all that they need in life and that is not true.
2.He is not a replacement for our senses.
This is important because there are situations that your 5 senses are what you need. For example, when you are driving, you should follow your eyes that show you that a car is in front of you. Don’t follow your spirit when your eyes can tell you to step on the brakes.
3. He is not a replacement for our intelligence
God did not give us intelligence for nothing. Instead He is an extension of our common sense, our senses and our intelligence. God will allow you to use your five senses, your common sense and your intelligence to handle some things but there are things that will elude you if that is all that is available.
There are realms of life that these three cannot penetrate but the Holy Spirit helps us to access those realms so that when we are making decisions in life we have a complete picture. Without this access through the Holy Spirit, you may be a victim in some realms of life.
Prayer: Holy Spirit, I receive your help in all the affairs of my life that I may not be in the dark in Jesus’ name. Amen.
