So often I read things on how I should act or think or believe and it makes perfect sense. I know that if I just reacted a given way, my thoughts and feelings would move in the direction I should be moving. Always easier said than done.
I don’t understand myself at all, for I really want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do the very thing I hate. -Romans 7:15
As Christians, we need to decide to believe. We want to understand everything, but God doesn’t always give us understanding, our mind then refuses to believe what it doesn’t understand. I think that our minds are often bound up by the enemy to keep us from believing what we know to be true.
But God provides us help here too.
And the Holy Spirit helps us in our distress. For we don’t even know what we should pray for, nor how we should pray. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. -Romans 8:26
I’ve talked about this verse before in one of my Bible Study Minutes. It’s amazing to think that we have someone praying for us even when we don’t know we need prayed for. Remember James 1:2-8 where we see we can ask God for wisdom in trials and he will give it to us and show us what to do.
