The Intercession Of The Spirit

The Intercession Of The Spirit

Romans 8:26(NKJV) - Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

For many Christians, the biggest dilemma they have ever faced is figuring out The Will of God for their lives. If they only knew what God was thinking in a given situation so much stress would instantly disappear. Instead, they just pray to the Father in the name of Jesus according to John 15:16 hoping that He would just work it out in their favor. What about you? Have you ever considered what The Holy Spirit would pray for if He was praying to The Father directly? Since 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says that all scripture is God-breathed shouldn't we be fine if we just pray scriptures?

Maybe that's true but depending on the context, certain scriptures appear to contradict themselves. In fact, are you considering merely reciting them in hopes that your situation changes or declaring your interpretation of their meaning? Well that problem is solved by the intercession of The Holy Spirit. Since none of us know how to pray the way we should, He volunteered Himself to pray on our behalf. He knows what's on The Father's heart and how it can become a reality. So acknowledge The Holy Spirit today and thank Him for a job well done as your personal intercessor.
