Romans 8.26 – In the same way the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.
“Groanings which words cannot be uttered are often prayers which cannot be refused.” Charles Spurgeon
Mine probably sound more like “sighs” lately. I’m thankful the Spirit intercedes for me, because though I think of Him often, but I forget to pray and know not the words to pray, I just pray.
I’ve invited myself to this spot, asking God to open and close doors. I’ve seen the gloves come off. I’ve been asked to “Stand and wait.” So, I will, in faith. I silently say “But LORD, I’m ready to see the plan.” Maybe the lesson is there is no plan, so far. That’s what makes it exciting. God is working and something is happening that words, frustration and complaints cannot express. Too much. I just pray. I submit and stand in faith. The LORD will show up. David said, “I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.”
I do know my faith is growing, but my pride is shaking. I am in a near all-time low, and from my old standards I would be miserable, depressed. I fight it now, and find my hope in the LORD. I hold fast to JER. 29.11-13. I trust his way is better than mine and am thankful today that I don’t own everything. Geez, in fact, I hardly own anything.
Put rightly, I own nothing. El Senor, es mi pastor, nada me faltara. God is good, all the time.
Pray for me today God. Pray for me.
