What has been promised will come to pass.
And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will. And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
The Holy Spirit, working on your behalf, is the proof that God is at work and that what has been promised will come to pass. When you experience blessings in your life despite your deserving of it, when you feel conviction or promptings to do something you’d never do on your own--that’s the Holy Spirit at work in your life. The Holy Spirit works in us, even when we don’t ask for help, and this gives us a foretaste of future glory!
As a follower of Jesus, even when you don’t know what to pray for or when the odds are stacked against you, the Holy Spirit is working in your life and praying on your behalf! Be assured today that the work of these promises being fulfilled has already begun inside of you.
