Holy Spirit, We Need Your Help.

If you had a plant holder with dirt in it, it only takes one seed to make a change. Every act of obedience to the Lord makes a difference. We must have faith to continue to water what we don’t see. If the seed is in the ground, then that seed will grow if you water it. You must give faith time to display what is already done. The seed must develop roots before it brings up roots. The roots are the source of nourishment. A plant that grows fast without roots will not last.

When that plants comes out of the ground, he must deal with something he has never dealt with before. The plant must deal with storms, extreme heat, extreme cold, and pests. During all these challenges the roots are what keeps the plant nourished during adversity.

We must plant spiritual seeds and not worldly seed. Worldly seeds produce worldly roots. We must plant God’s seed first every day. The Word of God is a seed we must read every day to be rooted in Christ. Another way we grow in God is to share the Gospel (the Word of God) with others. We can’t just go to church and come back home. Share what you have learned with others. You must say more than hello and be kind to your neighbors. That is not the kind of witness God wants. God wants us to share the Gospel with our neighbors.


  • John 16:5-7 New King James Version – The Work of the Holy Spirit – “But now I go away to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’ But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.

We can’t just serve God mentally. We must serve Him in spirit and in truth, doing the will of The Father. Some of the primary functions of the Holy Spirit are to lead us, teach us, remind us of everything Jesus taught, convict us of sin, comfort us and to transform us into the image of Christ. But the primary role of the Holy Spirit is to help us to take on the ways of Jesus. When the Holy Spirit is planted as a seed in our heart, change will come. The question is–Are we nurturing our relationship with the Holy Spirit?

The Word of God can help us stop sinning, display self-control and change our attitude. Imagine a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. The change is so dramatic, if we didn’t know caterpillars turn into butterflies we would never believe it was the same creature. When we plant the Word of God into our hearts and nurture our relationship with God through the Holy Spirit, we will experience metamorphesis as dramatic as that of a caterpillar that crawls on the ground to a beautiful creature with wings that can fly!

The changes that God wants to make in our lives takes time. We must be patient. Transformation doesn’t happen overnight. God wants us to get to a place where we trust Him enough to take a leap of faith, no matter the circumstances. When we obey the Voice of the Holy Spirit we will be on the path to transformation. It’s God’s job to move obstacles out of our path. It is our job to obey Him. We need to take our hands off the wheel and let the Lord drive the direction of our lives.

  • Romans 8:14 New King James Version –  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 

Sometimes the Lord will take us a way that we wouldn’t go. But, the Lord knows exactly what He is doing in our lives. If we trust Him, everything will work out for our good.

  • Proverbs 3:5-6 New King James Version – Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

God will not move the obstacle until we get there. The Red Sea did not part for the Hebrews leaving slavery in Egypt UNTIL they reached the Red Sea. Don’t move ahead of God’s timing–TRUST GOD!

Stop lying. God hates lies.

Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.Ephesians 4:25-28

To be in relationship with God you must be honest. When we make excuses, we are lying. God hates lies and liars will not enter the kingdom of Heaven. Give no place to the devil. The devil is the father of lies and he was kicked out of Heaven.

  • Revelation 21:8 – 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
  • Proverbs 6:16-19 New International Version – 16 There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

Don’t let your anointing or your gift deceive you. You can go to church and have bible knowledge and not be saved. Ask yourself three questions…

  • Do you know where you will spend eternity?
  • Do you know if you’re going to Heaven?
  • Do you know if you are truly saved?

To get saved you must repent of your sins, ask Jesus into your heart and life and live for Jesus on a daily basis. If we sin, we have an advocate with the Father through Jesus Christ.

  • 1 John 5:13 – I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
  • 1 John 1:9 – If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

The Role of The Holy Spirit

We have a work to do on this earth. We don’t find ourselves or our true purpose until we find ourselves in Jesus Christ. There’s no need to go around the world to find yourself. If we reach out to our Heavenly Father, then we will find out who we truly are and what His desire is for our life.

Our life is not about us. It’s about serving God and others. In order to get to know God better, we need to listen to the Lord and not just do all the talking during our prayer time. To get to the Lord, practice sitting in silence before the Lord for 15 minutes. It’s easy to let our mind drift. So try this habit of solitude to practice hearing from God. During that time, open up your Bible and start reading.

  • Acts 16:6 – Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia.

In this passage, the disciples were forbidden to go to Asia to minister by the Holy Spirit–and they had no idea why. It is very important for us to listen to the leadership of the Holy Spirit for guidance even when we don’t understand. Obeying the Holy Spirit ALWAYS leads to a result that is best for us.


When the Holy Spirit guides us, we can’t allow what we see, think or feel interfere with our obedience. We must obey in faith because God often leads us to something that is impossible for us, but very possible for Him.


Live a life of readiness–ready to obey God, ready for the Lord’s return or our own death. The Holy Spirit will lead us to a life of readiness for the kingdom of God.


  • 1 John 3:9 – Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.
  • 1 John 3:9 AMPC No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, for God’s nature abides in him [His principle of life, the divine sperm, remains permanently within him]; and he cannot practice sinning because he is born (begotten) of God.

Don’t allow people to drop negative seed in your spirit. You don’t have to receive everything someone says. The Holy Spirit will let you know what to receive and what not to receive from people.


Sinful habits and mindsets don’t appeal to us as we draw closer and closer to God.
