When I do NOT know what to Say…
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. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

BlogFam, when it is time to move on, you will have moments when you will find yourself speechless and the Great Intercessor will whisper words of life and love into your spirit and on your behalf at the throne of God. This is one of the countless benefits of being a child of God, a son or a daughter of Zion, one who is led by the spirit, and waiting on the redemption of their body. There are so many things we want to receive from God. We want this and we want that. We think we need this or think we need that. But when is the last time you asked the Spirit to pray in you or through you? When is the last time you asked the Holy Spirit to go to heaven on your behalf? When is the last time you said THANK YOU LORD for understanding our weakness and knowing that there would be moments that would leave us speechless – moments when we do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit intercedes for us?
The Spirit helps us in our weakness. And it does not matter what our weakness is. This truth does not exclude any form of spiritual, physical, emotional, financial, or intellectual weakness. There are no limits to the weaknesses that we might experience and there are no limits to the help that the Spirit will give us in those moments. For even as you prepare to move on, you may have moments of weakness. Moments when you doubt, question, proceed with caution in the direction that the Lord has already confirmed for you to go. And in those moments, we have already received as much advice as anyone can receive from others. We have already prayed the prayers we thought would open heaven to pour out a blessed assurance that everything is going to be alright. We have already testified about it, named it and claimed it, and written our name on it. And yet, NOW, we do not know what to say. We are speechless. We are unsure of our godly confidence and we need the Spirit, more than we will ever really know, to help us in our weakness.
Then there is a rumbling in our souls, an awakening of a part of ourselves that has remained still until now. And the key to this movement now, is our weakness. When we have said and done ALL that we could say or do. We must remember, as Paul testifies in 1 Corinthians12:9-11:
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
My friends, God’s grace is sufficient for YOU and God’s power is made perfect in your weakness! Thus, when we surrender our weakness to God, the Holy Spirit that lives inside of us will then speak for us, interceding for us in wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. In other words, in the midst of our weakness, we can experience some of our greatest miracles.
I do not know about you, but, BlogFam, I am excited to know that the Spirit is so intimately acquainted with me that the Spirit can pray for me when I do not know what to pray for myself. I am elated that when it feels like I am all prayed out and am at the point of being tired of waiting, the Spirit inside of me groans with such conviction begging heaven to save me from myself. I am ecstatic that my weakness does not rule out my ability to cast my cares upon Him, because since he already cares for them all, God allows the part of God’s self that lives within me to speak for me.
And when the Spirit speaks, it IS the will of God. It is the WILL of God that the Spirit speaks. This is a phenomenal gift to all of those who are led by the Spirit. For as we prepare to walk into the next chapter of our lives, moving from one degree of grace to another, we all need to be reminded that we are covered even in our weakness. In our weakness, there is a power that rests inside of us that will proclaim good news, healing, deliverance, prosperity, peace, and power on our behalf. Those around us may speak about us and against us to insult us or intimidate us because we are having a moment of weakness. BUT my friends, THIS TOO, SHALL PASS. And when those around us may take advantage of our weakness, speaking words that will only benefit them; there is a life force inside of us interceding on our behalf using words that they do not understand, in sounds that confound the enemy to rescue the INNER-ME. And what the spirit speaks is life and peace, love and joy and everything we need that will be in line with the will of the Almighty.
And so, BlogFam, when it is time to move on, you will have moments when you will find yourself speechless and the Great Intercessor will whisper words of life and love into your spirit and on your behalf at the throne of God. So, let us trust the Spirit to pray in and through us now when we are strong but most especially when we become weak somehow knowing that when we are weak, we are strong. For God’s grace is sufficient for YOU and God’s power is made perfect in your weakness! This IS the will of God concerning YOU. This is a wonderful miracle!
