God’s Good Plan

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

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good. Romans 8:28a

Have you realized how closely connected these passages are? I have typically separated these verses in my mind as two separate acts, but that is not the case. The Holy Spirit is interceding in your prayer life to help get your prayers into God’s good plan.

Has God ever answered your prayer in a completely different way than you originally prayed for? In those moments the Holy Spirit shows you how God’s good plan working in and through your prayers. Could it be that the “we do not know how to pray as we should” statement could also be in reference to when our prayers are not in line with the will of God? Even then, the Holy Spirit intercedes and molds those prayers so that all things work for our good within His plan.

  1. So true—I too have always separated these thoughts in my mind, never realizing how close they were!
