From time to time, I have a situation where I actually
don’t know how to pray about it. If it’s happened to you, I don’t need to explain. If it hasn’t,
it will come at some point. It comes from many different directions. One might be that an acquaintance or even a loved one
has done something that had terrible consequences that he or she actually brought on themselves, and you find yourself saying,
"What were they thinking!" Do you pray that God will somehow get the law to look the other way? Do you ask God
to do the same…to just forgive and forget, because they should have known better? It can be a real dilemma.
And that’s where the Holy Spirit comes in. Romans
8:26-27 says "…for we know not what we should pray for as we ought; but the Spirit itself maketh intercession
for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because
he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God." And as God cares for the saints, He loves the
sinner even more, if that’s possible.
This is why the Holy Spirit is called "The Comforter." God is in three persons, and each has a
way for you. The next verse, Romans 8:28, says "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love
God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." We find that difficult to understand…that ALL things
part, but God has His ways, and even the sinner is in His plans. We pray that he will one day give his heart to Christ, because
God has a plan waiting for him, too. "Wherefore comfort one another with these words" (1st Thessalonians 4:18).
Too many folks get tied up in the Bible’s words about "tongues," when they should first let The Holy Spirit
help with their burdens.
when all is said and done, if you don’t understand all you want to know about the Holy Spirit, above all, don’t
deny Him nor make fun of Him. That’s the Unforgiveable sin ((Matt. 12:31-32, Luke 12:10). If you can’t say something
good, don’t say anything!
