Praying in accordance with the Holy Spirit

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. —Romans 8:26

Do we realize that we are energized by the Holy Spirit for prayer? Do we know what it is to pray in accordance with the Spirit? Finally do we realize that the Holy Spirit Himself prays prayers in us which we cannot utter ourselves? When we are born again of God and are indwelt by the Spirit of God, He expresses for us the unutterable.
“He,” the Holy Spirit in you, “makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God” (Romans 8:27). And God searches your heart, not to know what your conscious prayers are, but to find out what the prayer of the Holy Spirit is.
As believers we make intercession on behalf of others as the Holy Spirit guides us -to make intercession; to act between parties with a view to reconcile those who differ or contend; as believers our job is to seek reconciliation on behalf of our brothers and sisters.
Have we come to realize that our “body is the temple of the Holy Spirit”?  If so, we must be careful to keep it undefiled for Him.
We have to remember that our conscious life, even though only a small part of our total person, is to be regarded by us as a “temple of the Holy Spirit.”
He will be responsible for the unconscious part which we don’t know, but we must pay careful attention to and guard the conscious part for which we are responsible.
Your body is the inner sanctuary of the Holy Spirit, which you have of God. You are not your own. ~C Smith~
Our “inner sanctuary” is where we come face to face with our inner man and surrender to the sovereignty of God in our lives. Alone we will never accomplish this act it is only through the power of the Holy Spirit in us “the hope of glory” Col. 1.27 where we have a chance to serve Him with our whole hearts and lives.
Amen- Pastor J

Who’s the Fool Now?

Who’s the Fool Now?

1 Corinthians 1:26-31 (ESV)

26 For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; 28 God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, 29 so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. 30 And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, 31 so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”


  1. God uses the unwise, weak, and the outcast because we cannot say it was our doing we must give God the glory because we’re not smart enough to do it without Him! To which I am am thankful seeing that He would use me. I can also give glory since out of His great love He would chose to use one such as myself. How about you what do you think and how does that affect your service to Him known that He has chosen you do His work?
  2. Notice the order of Paul’s words righteousness, sanctification, redemption. It is backwards for us right first we are redeemed, and then sanctified, finally we are made righteous. Not so with LORD we sees us this very way from the beginning of our walk the very moment we believe we are made the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus! You would have to be a fool to see God’s love and sacrifice He has made through Jesus Christ and not respond to His gift of eternal life.
