The Spirit Knows

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 through wordless groans.

Romans 8:26

What a great gift that God has given us by sending the Spirit to live in us. The spirit that lives within our very soul and knows us better than we know ourselves knows what are needs are long before we do. The Spirit is already interceding with God for us, before we become aware of it. What a gift.

God has been preparing me for my journey my entire life. Looking back over the last 6 years I see ways in that He interceded in my life, nudged me in the correct direction, put the right people in my life at just the right time. Looking back in hindsight many of those moments are quite obvious to me. I’m sure thought that there are thousands of other moments that are not as apparent.

But the great thing is, the Spirit knows. The Spirit sees from the beginning to the end. He knows where we are going and the best path for us to get there. He is aware of the hurdles that will come before us and aware of the path around us. He sees how the enemy will try and thwart His goals and he knows how to guide us around those obstacles.

The Spirit, being aware of all these things, prays for us in ways we can not even imagine. We must still walk the path along the journey, we can know that he is right there beside us at all times.
