“In the same way the Spirit also joins to help in our weakness, because we do not know what to pray for as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with unspoken groaning.” (Romans 8:26)

One of the great encouragements in the Bible is this statement the Lord gave us through Paul, as he sought to encourage the Romans in their walk with the Lord. The Holy Spirit within us, Who knows everything there is to know about us, including that which we ourselves do not consciously know, intercedes on our behalf before the Father and the Son with deep groanings that express an unspoken reality.

Is there a “groaning” in your heart today? Is there some matter going on either within you or somehow in relation to your life and relationships that you can’t quite identify? Is there something you want to say to God but do not know how to say it or express it? If so, then keep listening. You may hear a spiritual groaning in your mind and heart. That is the Holy Spirit who is expressing this for you.

Whatever you face today, know that the Spirit of God is right there with you, and He will be interceding for you in ways you cannot.

Thank You, Lord. Amen.
