THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
ALL THINGS, GOD WORKS FOR THE GOOD OF THOSE WHO LOVE HIM
The apostle Paul wrote nearly half the books of the New Testament and was one of the most BRILLIANT minds of his day. Yet, he said HE didn’t always know what to PRAY. He was COMFORTABLE with what he didn’t know. He didn’t see it as a lack of faith to ADMIT, “I don’t have all the ANSWERS. I don’t know what to PRAY. I have UNCERTAINTIES, things I don’t UNDERSTAND, things I’m not SURE how they’re going to work OUT.” The reason he could SAY this and not be worried about what he didn’t KNOW is found two verses later. “We KNOW that in ALL things God works for the GOOD of those who LOVE Him.”
Are YOU frustrated by what you don’t KNOW, by what you can’t figure OUT, by what doesn’t look like it’s GOING to work out? Have a new PERSPECTIVE. It’s OKAY to not have all the ANSWERS as long as you know the God who is on the THRONE and working ALL things for your GOOD.
Romans 8:26, NIV
In the same way, 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.
