I have help

“The Spirit helps 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

(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – Proverbs 4-6 & Romans 8)

The world sure is a big and busy place.  But God is not overwhelmed by what I consider big.

This verse suggests that in my weakness the Spirit takes over.  That is comforting given the magnitude of what is going on around me.

God knows what is going on in my life.  Often in prayer I decide that He doesn’t know, so I inform Him.  Another “often in prayer,” is when I try to tell God of the type of “fixing” I’m looking for………”give me a good day.”

I need to align myself with Him in prayer.  I need to realize that He is Almighty and not mighty.  I can never assume that I have any sense for what God wants done.  I certainly have no clue on His timing!

I need to trust Him with all my heart.  I need to remove my understanding from the situation or the solution.  Let God be God.  Let the Holy Spirit fill in the cracks.  I must let go and let God.

“Father, I submit to You.  My understanding is very limited, certainly not worth relying on.  You know everything.  You know my comings and goings.  You know what the straight path for me is.  I want to be on that path.  Guide me there, I beg!”
