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. 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.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
It's been a week of letting the Spirit intercede in my prayers. Tough situations, leading to uncertainty, landing in a spot that I don't know if it's a blessing or a trial.
But God knows. I don't need to struggle with the circumstances because I know that as much as I don't know - He knows.
It feels a bit like swimming in the ocean and being caught up in a rip tide. All I see is that I'm being pulled out to sea. All I need to remember is that at some point, if I rest in it and pay attention, I will be released from its grip drawing me away from shore, and I'll be able to swim parallel to the shore. Once I'm outside that force I can swim back to shore safely.
The key things are to rest in it and pay attention to where I am. Don't struggle, or panic. If I do I will be spent of energy and can drown from the exhaustion of the struggle.
There's a pattern to it that I can't see from where I am in the water, but you can see it from above, it can be seen from the shore.
So I need to rest in this. Let the Spirit intercede.
God's got this.
Just another Jesus-girl on a journey...mostly around my home, but wherever else He drags me to. I love Jesus. Do my best at life. Write about what I learn. Always making messes on the table and in relationships. I take pictures of things others don't notice, craft and hand quilt, bake and cook and mostly I pray. Affiliate Links may be used.
