This is one of those Series that has taken some time to get my mind, heart and arms wrapped around – which am VERY glad that the time was taken to complete them. This is another large number of items Series – but they result from the work has been absolutely worth the effort. There are a whopping 30 items in this set – which sounds like overload, but in reality it is not. The lesson needed from this Series is actually what “is not there” so to speak, it was in the absence that a long sought after answer was found.
The Encouraging Sermon which this Series is based upon happens to have been delivered in a most special manner from a long time known fella who happens to do a decent job of preaching the Word… The focus was on the ultimate Helper, the Holy Spirit Who resides in every person who trusts Christ as their personal Saviour.
UNSEEN | Who Is This Helper?
As I’ve heard for majority of my life, the Holy Spirit is the third Person in the Trinity – God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. The “comforter” as described in the Gospel of John 14, 15 and 16 was given us when the Son of God, Jesus Christ, ascended back to Heaven. He is the small, quiet voice we hear as Christians, Who helps us in SO many different ways – will not begin to list them, or we’d need a new Series… One of those ways is when we read God’s Word, the Bible – He is the translating Agent such that we will understand what that Living Word is telling us given the place, time and season we are living. Essentially speaking – He is required for each of us to understand the knowledge of the Bible, otherwise it might appear to be just a book with LOTS of stories.
The Holy Spirit is not only an interpreter of the Word itself, He is also responsible to convey to the Father those things which we cannot or do not know how to convey – He is the ultimate prayer warrior. This Series is about prayer, the vantage point of doing so (levels) and the kind of Prayer He will do on our behalf – especially when we think all hope is lost…
FOCUS | Where Are We To Look?
The “catch phrase” for me, which did take a little digging to develop the more clear understanding of what it would come to being in meaning, is the word Perspective. A pretty simple definition of what is being referred to is: the way in which a subject or its parts are mentally viewed in contrast to others and the relationship they have to each other. Our perspective will change as we will allow the Holy Spirit to work in our everyday lives, notice God’s Perspective never changed – by His Word and Work, we are the ones changed more into the conformity of His Son’s Image.
Just as presented in each of the images for the Series, there will be something obviously used and/or missing from each individual print. For me, it was the missing part that needed to be caught and examined – because the prints are developed as a shell first most of the time – then it dawned on me that it wasn’t because something was missing, but rather some of the time it never had anything there to begin with.
This Series is about praying – the types of praying – and how the Holy Spirit works in the process of prayer, even when we have no real clue as to where to begin.
Intercession & Prayer
- Three Levels of Intercessory Prayer: Human | Heavenly | Heart
- The Holy Spirit Prays for Us: Personally | Prudently | Passionately | Perfectly
- The Access Plan: The Ground is Level at the Foot of the Cross
We can be sure that we have an Advocate in the Holy Spirit, which allows EVERY Christian access to the Heavenly Father for each and every need – even when we are praying for things that no other living soul may know about. Will we have our Perspectives changed? Even though we cannot see Him, can you feel Him at work in your life? This Series gives us a foundation for understanding that we are never alone to suffer or battle on our own. We have an Intercessor according to the Will of God and He knows that we are human! Indeed even, the Holy Spirit speaks in a soft, personal manner and He knows what to say when there seems nothing we can say…
