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 through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.”
I believe so strongly that the Holy Spirit is alive and well and at work. I believe that if I have put my life in Jesus it is my foolishness if I do not begin to explore the reality of the teaching, supporting and personal guidance God has promised that Spirit will give me according to his will. I may get wrong at times…but then I’ve been wrong many times for nowhere near as good a reason as trying to find faith in my daily life.
It’s the groaning part I understand the most; mine first, and then the Spirit’s as he and God strategize about my journey to holiness. That advocate who can explain me to God is great but here’s the rest, and the best, of the plan from my human standpoint. It’s the purpose and promise that the Holy Spirit will Show Me…to Me. It’s a really big deal.
