“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. – For the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will.”
Romans 8:26-27 (NLT)
Today’s passage puts a whole new meaning to the phrase, “You are never alone.” It goes way beyond telling someone, “God loves you.” It goes straight to our deepest needs. Paul paints a picture of the Holy Spirit coming before God in deep, deep concern, groaning as He intercedes for us, pleading with God Almighty to move in our life according to His will. Stop for a minute. Try to grasp what is going on. Close your eyes and see if you can picture it. The Holy Spirit praying, pleading, groaning on your behalf. What love, what empathy, what compassion. What peace, what comfort, what love. And it changes everything. We are not alone. We don’t have to live as if everything depends on us. We can put all our trust in Him. Today, might we have a deep sense of gratitude and love for the presence of the Holy Spirit in us. Might we be moved with a profound reverence and awe for our Heavenly Father who loves us in such an amazing way.
Oh Holy Spirit, how I marvel at Your intercession for me. How humbled I am that You would act with such love for me. How deeply moved I am that You would pray and plead on my behalf. Thank You so much for all You do and are.
