Meditation — January 24, 2017

Posted on Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

Scripture: And as well as this, the Spirit too comes to help us in our weakness, for, when we do not know how to pray properly, that the Spirit personally makes our petitions for us in groans that cannot be put into words; and he who can see into all hearts knows what the Spirit means because the prayers that the Spirit makes for God’s holy people are always in accordance with the mind of God. Romans 8:26-27

Prayer: Is it the chill temperature, threatening rain, the dismal morning—no sign of the sun—and threatening rain that contribute to my desultory demeanor. However, it is a grace that no one except my dog has viewed me; if she could speak, she would probably express relief. Hear my prayers, Lord, which cannot be put into words.

Response: Paul writes from experience and his message reaches and encourages you this gloomy morning. Be sure to calculate at the end of the day the many blessings that became manifest in your life this day—in the conversations with loved ones and friends, reading the missives from dear ones, in the insights delivered to you in the words of a favorite author, and your inspiration that fuels afresh your creative efforts.

You see, it is no disgrace to admit to your weakness, and it is a grace to acknowledge that the Lord’s presence accompanies you on your journey, taking every twist and turn with you, and clearing your attention so that you see a direction that you might have missed as if on a forest trail when the brush was thick.

What more reassurance do you require in the Spirit’s attention than the phone call you just received from a loved one—sharing, laughing, and listening? There is much more to come to you this day. Praise God!

All for this morning in His grace.
