Asking for Help

How do you ask for God’s help? The Bible says the Spirit of God lives within us when we accept Jesus as our Savior because of His finished work on the cross. He promised that He would send the Holy Spirit to live within us after His resurrection and ascension to the Father.


So when I sense that my flesh wants to rule my decisions and my life, (which is almost daily!!) I call out to the Holy Spirit to help me with my obedience and journey with the Lord. He is superior to anything I can think up. He is higher in every way than me. One way I do that is with this chorus:

Spirit of God within me rise up
Spirit of God within me rise up
Take ascendancy over my body
Take ascendancy over my mind.

Ascendancy means a state of being in the ascendant; governing or controlling influence. When I give God authority over me I give the Trinity the right to determine the best for me, the power and authorization to guide and direct my life.

Are you willing to yield to the work of God in every area of your life? Do you believe that His ways are higher than your ways, His thoughts higher than your thoughts? Isaiah 55:9


Try calling out to Him in this way. It may take hours, days, weeks or months to sense results; however, if you are faithful to be obedient and yield to what He asks of you, I believe you will know His touch and His help in more areas than you ever thought possible.
