All things working together for good

We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labour] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose. Romans 8:28 AMP

This scripture has given me so much hope over the years. A scripture that at times when everything looks like it is completely falling apart, reminds me God has a plan and He will bring good from it for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

When you start to think, this is all too hard, I don't understand, I don't know what to do, and come to that place of simply crying out to God, 'Help me', He always answers. He loves us. We don't have to look far from that Romans 8:28 scripture to find a tangible act of His love for us.

So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance. 

And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God's will. 
Romans 8:26-27 AMP

The precious Holy Spirit, our comforter, our friend. We are not alone.

But the Comforter (Counsellor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in my name [in My place to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you. John 14:27 AMP

Today, with whatever challenges we are facing, lets ask God to inscribe His truth deeper on our hearts, and help us to continually listen to the perfect friend that He has provided for us, the Holy Spirit.

Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God's Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don't know how or what to pray, it doesn't matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That's why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good. Romans 8:26-28 The Message
