All things for our Good!

Rom 8:25   But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

Rom 8:26  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.

Rom 8:27   And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Rom 8:28   And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Humanity carries with it so many limitations.  These verses in Romans chapter 8 remind me of just how limited we are.  In the stress of every day life. we often do not even know how to pray.  Is this the will of God for our life or not?  Should we take this action or wait for a better way?

When you are truly trying to follow God’ direction in your life the Spirit of God will assist you.  Interesting that when I do not know how to pray, the Spirit of God will pray for me. (8:26) The Spirit of God takes the groaning of my heart, the things that are beyond my ability to express and He declares them before God.  He prays for me according to the will of God for my life.  There is a great confidence in knowing that where we falter God has provided his own Holy Spirit to pick us up by praying for us.

The result is that even in the bad times we can know that the pain is just part of a master plan where all becomes good for those that love God! And I do love Him!

Keep Looking Up!
