Re:Verse passage – Romans 8:26-27 (day five)

“In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness… but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words… because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.”

Isn’t the Holy Spirit amazing?  We are told (and rightly believe) that the Lord is watching us. Proverbs 5:21, “For a man’s ways are before the eyes of the Lord, and he ponders all his paths”. In the same way, we also believe that God knows us- Psalm 139.  And with the power and presence of the Holy Spirit, we can be encouraged that God understands us.  Being understood is one of our biggest needs.  How many parents have been told by their teenage children, “You just just don’t understand”?  Not so with our Heavenly Father. He has provided a means for us, even in our own confusion (distress, angst, suffering) or lack of understanding, a way to be perfectly (according to the will of God) understood. What peace, comfort, and confidence believing that truth can bring to the heart of a believer!!
