Isaiah 47:10 ” I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.”

God’s plan and purpose…His Will for us,  has been set in stone since before the dawn of mankind.  His Will is that all may come to a saving knowledge of His Son, Jesus Christ.  He has established His Will for our well-being, that as long as we obey, we can only benefit from it.  So it’s preposterous for us to think that we can somehow manipulate God’s Will.  In Proverbs 19:21 it says, ” Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”  We can ignore Him, mock or defile Him…but we’re never going to change His Will for our life.

Romans 8:26 ” In the sameway, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.”

We’ve all been there.  That deep moan of grief or pain escapes our lips…but that’s all.  No words are spoken…because there are no words.  Our mind is a confusing  jumble of our frail mortal condition.  That’s when the Holy Spirit can express for us the unutterable, inexpressible words we can’t find.  And that’s when the Holy Spirit can step in and make intercession for us according to the Will of God. (Romans 8:27)  The indwelling Holy Spirit is always there to pray…when we can’t.
