[Chapter 8-8] (Romans 8:26-28) The Holy Spirit Who Helps The Righteous

(Romans 8:26-28)
“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. 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.”
 
 
The Holy Spirit is in the hearts of those who believe in the righteousness of God. The Holy Spirit makes them to pray and helps them to do so. He also makes intercessions for them with a groaning that cannot be uttered. This means that the Holy Spirit helps them to pray according to the will of God. That is why those who believe in the righteousness of God are called the children of God. The Lord promises them that He will always be with them to the end of time.
The Holy Spirit is within the righteous, making intercessions according to the will of God. How do you think that you can receive the Holy Spirit? By praying? Do you think that you can receive the Spirit despite all your sins? The Holy Spirit works and dwells only in the hearts of those who believe in God’s righteousness.
Christians who wish to pray according to the will of God receive help from the Holy Spirit. They learn and understand what they should pray for. If you have received the Holy Spirit by believing in the righteousness of God, the Holy Spirit will make intercessions for you and lead your way.
 

All things work together for good
 
“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” (Romans 8:28).
God is on the side of the believers, causing all things to work together for good to those who love God. God loves the born-again believers. He may sometimes use our enemies for our own sake, but in the end, He punishes them for their sins. Every enemy of ours will thus disappear into His everlasting punishment, as everything that God allows is only for the good of the believers.
