“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered”.
The phrase, “helpeth our infirmities,” is from a Greek word meaning, “take hold together with, against”. When the Bible says He helpeth our infirmities, it means the Holy Ghost takes hold together with us against whatever infirmity we have. The word “infirmity” goes beyond sickness. The Bible says, “we do not know what we should pray for as we ought.” but we receive help from the Holy Spirit because our human ability often falls short of knowing how to approach our problems.
This shortage is a consequence of the fall of Adam because when Adam fell, there was a gap created between man and God that the devil exploited and is still exploiting. This affected the human race and led to all manners of personality defects. For the Holy Ghost to take hold together with us against our infirmities, we need to be honest with Him so that we are made whole within and without and not a failure inside when everyone believes we can succeed in life.
This shortage is responsible for the lack of self-esteem that has resulted in the loose behavior of some young ladies that any slight expression of love from men is misconstrued as acceptance and automatically leads to a sexual relationship. Only the Holy Spirit can take hold together with you to lead you to your victory.
Sometimes you have to deal with some health conditions and the pain is so severe that even drugs cannot stop it. You need the Holy Spirit to take hold together with you against that pain. Some experiences can knock the word of God out of your mouth but the Holy Ghost will take hold together with you if you call on Him.
