26 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.
28 For God works all things together for good to those who love him and are called according to his purpose.
Walking in Faith: Reflections on Romans 8:28
As believers, it is important for us to trust in God and see every circumstance, whether in pain or in joy, that His divine purpose is at work. Romans 8:28 assures us that our faith is not in vain, rather there is a higher purpose to our journey as Christians as we persevere and surrender to God’s will. We can trust that God is orchestrating events for our ultimate good and His glory.
Dear Heavenly Father,
May You help us trust in You in times of uncertainty and trials and give us a discerning heart to align our lives with your purpose. May we find comfort and hope in the knowledge that You are working all things together for our good and for Your ultimate glory.
In Jesus’ name, we pray.
