Who Do You Consider To Be Your Ally?

"However, the Comforter, who is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things and bring all things to your recollection, whatsoever I have spoken unto you," John 14:26.

An ally is a person or thing that comes to the aid of someone, who has superior talent in one or more areas, assisting them in overcoming, defeating, or escaping tyranny by an aggressor or dominant conditions.

When it appears that he or she may not be able to tackle a crisis alone, one usually seeks for an ally. For example, if a nation realizes that it is unable to defeat another nation in battle, it may establish an alliance with other nations that are also at odds with the one it is fighting.

The Moabite, Ammonite, and Mount Seir alliance that rose up against the Israelites is an example of this (2 Chronicles 20).Despite this coalition, the descendants of Israel destroyed the three nations because they had the Greatest Ally fighting on their side.

Elymas the sorcerer met Paul and Barnabas when they took the gospel to Paphos (Act 13:6-11). This sorcerer would have thwarted the effort to convert a significant figure to Christ if it hadn't been for the Greatest Ally. Paul, with His assistance, pronounced sentence on the spirit of sorcery who was at war with them, and the result is recorded in Act 13:12.

“Then the deputy, seeing what had been done, believed, startled at the Lord's doctrine.” One crucial takeaway from this narrative is that witnessing for Christ without the Holy Spirit's help may not be effective.

The Holy Spirit is the perfect Ally of the church in the duty of enforcing and spreading God's kingdom, as the Lord Himself confirms (Act 1:8).I refer to him as my Senior Partner, but he is much more than that in reality. Beloved, be sure you have the Holy Spirit on your side. This, however, is only achievable if Jesus Christ is both your savior and your Lord.

Regardless of how hopeless the situation appears, success is guaranteed if we have God as our Ally, according to Romans 8:31. A similar principle is echoed in (2 Kings 6:16). When Prophet Elisha awoke one morning, he found himself surrounded by hostile soldiers on horses and chariots. Nonetheless, in (2 Kings 6:16), the prophet comforted his fearful servant by saying: “...fear not: for those who are with us are greater than those who are with them.”

In Jesus' Name, I declare that the Greatest Ally will rise on your side today in the name that is above every other name, and the adversaries who have been keeping vigil over your life will suddenly be outnumbered by the host of heaven. One with God is, without a doubt, a majority. Thank you for taking the time to read today's article, beloved. God's Blessings on You!

Prayer: Father you are my most powerful ally; please rise and assist me in the name of Jesus.
