How to Overcome Overwhelm with Your God-given Vision (The Birthing Process Part 2)

How to Overcome Overwhelm with Your God-given Vision (The Birthing Process Part 2)

Last Sunday's devotional was different in that rather than basing my musings on a particular woman of the Bible, I spoke on a an experience that is unique to women- giving birth.

Whilst this process is understood as a natural or physical (reproductive) process, I spoke about it and related it to the process of giving birth to our spiritual children or brainchildren (ideas, goals, dreams, vision). This will be summarised briefly in today's post but, just in case you prefer to see the whole thing in detail, you can do that here).

On thinking about this process further I realised that birthing brainchildren doesn't just cause labour pains, it can also cause feelings of overwhelm (particularly when our goals and dreams are in the early stages of being manifest or their infancy).

Well... I say "realised" but it was less a realisation and more a personal experience with overwhelm myself in the beginning of the week (more about that in the video..)

So this is where the inspiration to give 4 tips for overcoming overwhelm (really 5, if I include the bonus one) came from- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

 

Lessons from Wisdom on How to be a Helper

Lessons from Wisdom on How to be a Helper

To excerpt from my guidebook, The Ultimate Guide to Eve-

The Holy Spirit (like God) has many different names, each reflecting an aspect of His nature. For example, He is called “the Spirit of truth,” (John 16:13; John 14:17; John 15:26), “the eternal Spirit” (Hebrews 9:14) and much more. However when Jesus first announced His coming, He addressed Him as “another Helper” (John 14:26; John 14:16) and outlined His role, which is basically to dwell within those that accept Jesus so that they might:

This is why on announcing the arrival of the Holy Spirit Jesus told His disciples that, although God’s presence had dwelt with them through Him up to that point, He would soon be in them (John 14:17). Through this indwelling of the Holy Spirit God is still able to manifest His powers through those who believe in Jesus, just like when He was present on the earth in human form. It is in this way that we are able to abide in Jesus as He abides in the Father and vice versa (John 15:5).

It is interesting to note Jesus’ use of the word “another” before the title Helper as it suggests that there had been a different type of helper prior to Jesus’ announcement, and there was- in the person of Eve- particularly in her role of wife (Genesis 2:18-25). The word “helper” is used to describe Eve specifically in Genesis 2:18, which suggests that Eve’s role as helper (and that of subsequent females) is actually symbolic of the Holy Spirit’s relationship to those who have accepted Christ (especially as marriage is a symbol of Christ's relationship with the church).
