Romans 8:26-27  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. 27 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.

Do you remember that commercial from TV many years ago of a senior citizen who had fallen on the floor and she couldn’t get up. The commercial was to advertise a call button for her to wear to alert a company of an emergency situation.  Well we have a call button too.  The name of the provider is God and the helper is the Holy Spirit.  Not only will He help you but He will pray for you when you are down for the count and cannot pray for yourself.  In fact if all you can do at the time is moan He will understand what your need is and relay that to God.

Have you ever lost a loved one?  When you first got the news, you may have cried from the depths of your heart and you had no words? What happened is the Holy Spirit who is already inside of you knew what was in your heart and mind and this information was immediately brought to God’s attention. You may not remember all of this happening, but the comfort came because you did get through it.  You didn’t lose your mind or could not function because the Holy Spirit came to you and gave you comfort and strength.  You pressed that call button and help arrived right on time.

Let’s change the commercial a bit……..I’ve fallen and I can get up!!!!  Do you hear me….you can get up!! So if you are going through something right now and you’re crying and moaning and groaning because it’s so painful….press the call button…… will get your cries answered…….you will get help…..someone is with you at all times….you are safe.  You can get up!!

Psalms 28:9 Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up forever. 

There have been times in my life that I couldn’t pray because of physical pain, sudden bad news, or an extremely awful situation.  I knew the Lord was with me and although I could not feel it at that very moment through the suffering….when I look back over that difficult time, I can see God’s presence all over it. I could see how He brought me out.  It’s good to meditate on these things so that the next time a crisis comes you will remember what God did and that He is present in EVERY situation.  I’ve fallen and I can get up.

Don’t take all these benefits for granted.  Have an ongoing relationship with the Lord, pray at all times.  In the commercial you must go out and purchase the call button service….with the Lord’s Service to us you must be a part of His Company.  A price was already paid for it and all you have to do is connect with it ( be born again) and the connection is available to you 24/7.  Those of us who have this connection feel so protected…….right?  Those who don’t have this connection…please email me in the sidebar and I will surely tell you how you can get connected.  It’s free for you because the price has been paid and you get unlimited service and a lifetime guarantee.
