He knows what we need

 

By Paige Haas

Pastor John B. McGarvey tells this story: One day, our church copier broke down. I’m not mechanically minded, but I called the repair shop to see if they could tell me what the problem was and if I could do anything about it. I quickly discovered, however, that I didn’t even know how to describe what was broken. I didn’t know the names of the parts or what was specifically wrong. I just knew the copy machine didn’t work.

So the repair shop sent out a technician. While working on our machine, he also called the shop. Unlike me, he knew how to describe what was needed. He used words I didn’t understand, but the person at the shop did, and soon the copier was repaired.

My need was met because someone came and communicated to headquarters in words I could not express. The apostle Paul teaches in Romans 8 that this is what the Holy Spirit does for us. When we don’t know how to pray, the Holy Spirit knows precisely what we need and prays in a language the Father perfectly understands.

“We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will” (Rom. 8:26-27).

Have a great week.
