7 Reasons Why The Holy Spirit And Not Mankind Is Our Destiny Helper – Benny Shobo

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Our Destiny Helper is no other than the Holy Spirit. I have often heard people refer to mankind as their destiny helper when they pray to God; asking God to send them their destiny helper. This is by no way the truth because John 14:26, “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and remind you of all that I said to you”. This clearly states that the Holy Spirit is our Helper in all things. We must be cautious how we refer to people as our destiny helpers.

One major role of the Holy Spirit, is to help the Children of God achieve their destiny purposes in Christ. God can use anybody at any time to fulfil His will on the earth. In other words, God is not limited to one alone. For example, if Jonah had persistently refused to deliver God’s message of warning to the people of Nineveh, God being not limited to only one person, would have raised another person in place of Jonah to deliver that same message to the people of Nineveh. So clearly then Jonah was only a tool in God’s hand and not the destiny helper to the people of Nineveh. Our Destiny Helper is always God the Father, Jesus His Son and The Holy Spirit. John 15:26, “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me”.

When God enabled to Elijah help the widow of Zarephath, that did not make Elijah the destiny helper. Elijah was merely a vessel that God used to send help to the widow in time of famine. It was God that instructed Elijah to go to the widow in the first instance, and it was God who directed Elijah to the widow because He knew that she needed divine help. 1 Kings 17:8-9, “Then the word of the Lord came to him: “Go at once to Zarephath in the region of Sidon and stay there. I have directed a widow there to supply you with food.”

Another very good example is seen the story Joseph in Genesis 41:9-14. Here, we clearly see that although Pharaoh’s cup bearer recommended Joseph for his dream interpretations gift to interpret Pharaoh’s dreams, that did not automatically make the cup bearer Joseph’s destiny helper in anyway. It was God who caused Pharaoh’s cup bear to remember to recommend Joseph before Pharaoh at the appointed time. The cup bearer was only an instrument in God’s hands.

Lastly, in Acts 10:1-11:18, we see how the Holy Spirit instructed Peter to go to the house of Cornelius with the Gospel of Salvation. Now, when Peter led Cornelius and his household to receive salvation in Christ, that did not make Peter Cornelius’s destiny helper because Peter was only a vessel which God used to fulfil His divine will for Cornelius and his household. It was the Holy Spirit (our Destiny Helper), who directed Peter to minister to Cornelius in Caesarea. Again, we must remember vividly that salvation comes from no other person but God. Psalm 121:2, My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth”.

7 Reasons Why The Holy Spirit And Not Mankind Is Our Destiny Helper.

1.  When we refer our destiny helpers as mankind, it shifts our focus from God unto mankind.

2.   When we see mankind rather than the Holy Spirit as our destiny helper, we become reliant on mankind and not God. We learn therefore to run mankind and not to God.

3.   When we consider mankind our as our destiny helper, we are prone to give the glory to mankind rather than God.

4.   When we refer to mankind as our destiny helper other than the Holy Spirit, we become indebted to mankind.

5.   When we call mankind our destiny helper and not the Holy Spirit, we limit what God will do in our lives. It limit God’s purposes for our lives.

6.   When we make mankind our destiny helpers rather than the Holy Spirit, we limit how the Holy Spirit will render us help in time of our need.

7.   When we receive mankind rather than the Holy Spirit as our destiny helper, our prayers become mechanically and not spiritual, distracted and not in faith.

Praise God!
