Monday 8/26 ~ I don’t know what to ask for

The scripture for today, August 26 (8/26), is Romans 8:26 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

Silver Cover-KINDLE-thumbnail“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 with groans that words cannot express.”

The Holy Spirit in the New Testament is always linked with communication between God and Man. Even the miracles, made possible by the Holy Spirit, were a guarantee that the words and teachings accompanying the miracles were from God. This was needed before the New Testament was written. But the Holy Spirit does more than this.

God speaks to you in his Word, the Bible. Then you speak to him in return in prayer. But sometimes all you can do is bow your head in silence and know that God understands ~ His Spirit communes with your spirit.  Further, you do not know the future, so do not know what will be best for your situation.

Yes, there are some things we know for sure are God’s will such as someone becoming a Christian and saving their soul from hell.  Most things, however, we do not know if it is God’s will.  You may pray to get that new car because you have the money for it. But God knows there will be a storm that will destroy your house or apartment, or a family member will be hospitalized and insurance will not cover all the bills, or your company will go out of business and you will lose your job. 

Life is so uncertain. No matter how hard you pray for something, may you always end each prayer or even each “groaning” with “Your will be done”.
