“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will. And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”
Romans 8:26-28 NLT
The Holy Spirit is always in harmony with the will of God. In fact, He is the very person and presence of God within the believer. Ephesians 1:14 states “The Spirit is God’s guarantee that he will give us the inheritance he promised and that he has purchased us to be his own people. He did this so we would praise and glorify him.” Jesus said in John 14:18 “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” KJV. Also, In the epistle of Galatians, Paul, led by the Holy Spirit, says “And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.” Galatians 4:6 KJV. It is abundantly clear that God has breathed His life back into those who have accepted His Son Jesus as their Lord and Savior. The Holy Spirit is the active, living presence of God in the believer. 1 Corinthians 6:19 clearly states “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself,” NLT.
As we allow the Spirit of God (Holy Spirit), to direct our thoughts and actions, we find ourselves in harmony with God. Even when we are incapable of expressing our infirmities (weaknesses) to God, the Holy Spirit does so in absolute clarity. He is our aid in all we do in this life.
If we truly love Jesus, have His Spirit indwelling us, and yield to to the Holy Spirit, we can trust that God will work out even the most minor details of our lives for His glory. We must submit our will to His. We cannot expect God's will to be done in our lives if we are not living in accordance with the Holy Spirit.
