He’s on our side! - February 3, 2023

Friday, February 3rd

Devotional written by Pastor Troy Thornton, Developoment Pastor




To read today: Romans 8:25-26


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.

Romans 8:26



It is always good to have “a guy.” You know, that guy (or girl) you can call to help with a tough situation. Maybe it’s an aunt who is a doctor who gives you medical advice, or a brother-in-law who is a contractor who fixed your AC—someone who is on your side and in a position to help. As believers, we definitely have someone who is on our side in the person of the Holy Spirit. What a blessing of God’s grace He is!

The Holy Spirit is working behind the scenes to empower us and pray for us to the Father in a way we can’t. Somehow the Holy Spirit (the forgotten member of the Trinity) goes before us in prayer, praying for the will of God in our lives. He somehow supernaturally knows what we need (even when we don’t) and communicates to the Father “through wordless groans” (8:25). He somehow gives us strength when we are weak. The Holy Spirit – God Himself – is our advocate. Our Gracious God not only desires what is best for us, He (in the person of The Spirit) is working for our good! He is on our side!

TODAY: List two times in your walk with God that you know the Holy Spirit strengthened you.
