Hi, David here.
We’re changing the format a bit on our Friday’s posts and offering an opportunity to take a deeper dive into the posts we do on Tuesdays. You could call it a devotional, a reflection, a study, but whatever you call it, it’s an invitation to do, to be, and to apply.
Last Tuesday Rob wrote about the groaning of our heart and reflected on how:
…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 (Romans 8:26-27).
It is probably just as well that God knows what we need before we ask, because sometimes we don’t have enough words or the right ones to express ourselves.
Some questions for you to consider:
1. If the Spirit helps us in our weakness, in what way doe He help us in our strengths?
2. If God knows what we need before we ask, what should our prayers sound like?
3. If we spend our prayer time listening, what would we hear, how would it shape our day?
4. What will you do differently, what will you keep doing?
This week may you know that God already knows you needs before you ask, may you experience the peace that God has for you in your weaknesses and strengths. May we learn to listen more, talk less, and hear from God. May this experience shape you.
It would be great to hear your thoughts, and experiences on this. Be brave, leave a comment, share an experience, give us feedback, tell us a story.
