A Prayer to Look to the Lord as Mighty God
By Chelsey DeMatteis
“In the identical method the Spirit additionally joins to assist in our weak spot, as a result of we have no idea what to wish for as we must always, however the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with unstated groanings. And He who searches the hearts is aware of the Spirit’s mind-set, as a result of He intercedes for the saints in response to the need of God.” – Romans 8:26
For 2 weeks, I sat fumbling with phrases, ideas, and emotions that felt opposite to the religion I knew lived inside my coronary heart. “Why me? Why now? Why am I wrestling with this?” These are three issues that got here to my thoughts through the swirling chaos. I’m certain you’ve felt this sooner or later too.
On a Thursday evening, I sat with the phrase “unstated” stirring in my coronary heart. I would had two mates just lately share the phrase with me all in a matter of every week. When the stirring would not subside (thanks Holy Spirit!), I made a decision to search for what God’s Phrase needed to say about this phrase. It is referenced twice, as soon as within the Previous Testomony (Proverbs 27:5) and as soon as within the New Testomony (Romans 8:26).
“In the identical method the Spirit additionally joins to assist in our weak spot, as a result of we have no idea what to wish for as we must always, however the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with unstated groanings. And He who searches the hearts is aware of the Spirit’s mind-set, as a result of He intercedes for the saints in response to the need of God.” (Romans 8:26).
Moments into studying this scripture and sitting with the reality of God’s Phrase, I felt the phrases effectively up in me that I could not fairly articulate days prior. The Holy Spirit lastly dropped at the floor all of the lies from the enemy that have been coming in opposition to me. Lies of deceit and confusion. And I knew in that second the Holy Spirit was rebuking the issues occurring in my coronary heart that I could not see or communicate of.
Ponder this with me, the Holy Spirit, which was gifted to us by our Mighty God, lives inside our hearts and rebukes issues inside us we can’t detect within the flesh. How wonderful is that this? How MIGHTY of God is that this and John 16:13 offers us the reason. “When this Spirit of Fact comes, it can information you into all reality.” John 16:13
My coronary heart is deeply inspired and grateful for this present. We’ll all discover ourselves in a season of religious battles being waged in opposition to us. It could be sensing one thing is off, one thing is unsettling in your spirit, or the belongings you’re considering are clearly not from God. While you sense these items, tune into the Holy Spirit. Pray the reality of Romans 8:26 and belief that the Holy Spirit is interceding once we cannot see what’s going down inside our hearts and within the Non secular realm.
As we discover ourselves within the season of celebrating Jesus’ delivery and all He’s to us, I pray that your coronary heart could be softened to see the nice, intricate works of our Mighty God. And will you’ll find your self in awe and marvel at His works.
Father, thanks for sending your son, Jesus, to dwell amongst us. Thanks for the present of the Holy Spirit that we get due to what your son did on the cross. I pray for a coronary heart that seeks you above all issues throughout this season of Creation. I reward you for being Mighty God. In Jesus’ title, amen.
