God does need our help (or does He?)

It has been quite a while but Happy New Year to all, I often come here to reflect and write about how awesome God is and how He is constantly faithful even when I am not faithful which really demonstrates His Love for us who fail Him. Nevertheless, today I was inspired to write about whether God needs our help or not, now before we get into the main scripture for the current draft let us first remind ourselves of God’s initial and current order. Genesis 1 vs 26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground”.

This scripture is important because it indicates that God created mankind so that they will have dominion over the earth, a teaching by Dr Myles Munroe opened my eyes so much when he taught about the kingdoms. This means that God rules the Kingdom of Heaven, yet when it comes to earth He made humans to be rulers, before and after the fall we still remain the rulers over this earth. In other words, God as Sovereign as He is cannot take back His Word and suddenly rule over the earth as well, that would make Him a liar and we all know God is incapable of lying otherwise He is not God. We know who the liar is but anyway, God or any other spirit cannot intervene on earth without a body, so the body is important because without a body then you are just a spirit and as Dr Myles put it then it means you are illegal. Spirits are illegal unless they are in a body, hence Jesus had to come and die for our sins as a human, hence demons have to enter a body in order to operate.

See why we need to pray? God can only intervene here on earth with our permission as the rulers. When we pray we invite God to have His way over the earth or in our situations. Here is the scripture that got to me, Isaiah 44 vs 24 “I am the Lord, your Saviour I am the one who created you. I am the Lord, the Creator of all things. I alone stretched out the heavens: when I made the earth, no one helped me “. It blew my mind because recently, or maybe it had been occurring for a while but I can have this sense of having to do something in my own strength and without realising it, the flesh hates having to depend on the spirit which is in tune with the Holy Spirit for help. It is easier to do things using self effort, but this is not how it should be, we need to rely on the Holy Spirit to take a bath. So God was using this scripture to convict me and remind me that I do not need to “help” Him. He is completely God and will continue to be God regardless of what I face. I truly repent for this because it has left me burnt out, tired and demotivated because what you start with the flesh you have to sustain using the flesh. God understands our nature though but it is an important lesson.
