God, the searcher of the heart, knows fully our longings, yet he also understands the desires of the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit passionately pleads before God for us, his holy ones, in perfect harmony with God’s plan for our destiny. (The Passion Translation, edited)
Do you realize the Holy Spirit is interceding for you?
Are there times when you want to pray about your situation and you just don’t know what to say? Do you think you have an idea about what God is doing but you are not 100% positive? If so, be at peace. Rest on the fact that the Holy Spirit knows what is in your heart and also knows what is in the heart of the Father. He is the perfect advocate and the best counselor. The Holy Spirit can minister to you while pleading your case. He does not fumble with words or a lack of understanding about what is going on. He has the big picture.
John 14:16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), to be with you forever— (AMP)
You can choose to take advantage of the blessing available to you through His intercession at any time. It does not matter if you have made a mess of things. The Holy Spirit is always available to you and advocates for you.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I thank You for the Holy Spirit who makes intercession for me. I thank You mostly because He helps me realize I just don’t have the big picture. If You handled my situations the way I thought You should; I could not number the additional disasters that would have to be resolved. I thank You for Your heart for me. The thoughts You have for me are good and not evil; You have an expected end for my life. You designed my path and You laid it out. You order my steps. You intervened when I did not know it. You have my future orchestrated. You are making things happen I won’t know about fully until I am living in the results, my “suddenly” moments. So, I stand on Your knowledge, Your love and Your plan. You love me and know want what’s best for me. When I forget, You hold the world in Your hands; when I forget You are Alpha and Omega; thank You for the Holy Spirit. He is right there to speak to me, to give me guidance and to make intercession for me…
