The Intercessor

Romans 8:26-27 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.   And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

Sometimes, we find ourselves in positions where we don’t know how to proceed, but thank God for the Holy Spirit.  God has not only given us the opportunity to pure our hearts and desires out to Him, He even provides the Holy Spirit to intervene in our prayers.  God knows we need an intercessor, someone who can interpret our inner thoughts to Him.

There are times we find ourselves incapable of uttering a word due to the emotional, physical or mental state we are in.  However, this is where the Holy Spirit comes in to help us, to speak for us, to translate our prayers according to God’s will.  While the Spirit intercedes for us, He is also asking God to provide us with our needs, with a remedy.

At times, all it takes is being still in the Spirit, just allowing Him to be the mediator between you and God for they both know what we truly need.

Psalm 33:20-22

20 We wait in hope for the Lord;
    he is our help and our shield.
21 In him our hearts rejoice,
    for we trust in his holy name.
22 May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
    even as we put our hope in you.
