Jesus Christ is faithfully praying 24/7 for you at the right hand of the Father. What an amazing fact. And His Spirit is down inside of you praying in your spirit 24/7! Amazing. If you are a born again Christian living for God, loving God, this is what is happening every day of your life.
“Likewise the Spirit also helps us in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the heart knows what the mind of the Holy Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans 8:26-27
We tend to live our lives skipping over the small things and focusing more on the big things. Taking things for granted and ignoring the things we consider to be little or insignificant. The Holy Spirit has put certain desires and passions in our hearts by design to motivate us to pray them into reality and birth them into our lives. To bring about God’s will for our lives.
As we pray we begin to sense and impasse and become discouraged, and sometimes question God. The Holy Spirit praying 24/7 inside of us brings different areas of our character and personality to our attention, but so often we belittle them as not important. The fact is though that they are very important, and are the very thing that is causing this impasse between what God has put in our hearts and those things becoming reality.
So what bridges the gap? You have to confront you!
The light of the Holy Spirit is in you, for YOU! First and foremost the Holy Spirit is showing us, convicting us, from the inside out what we need to deal with and get right with God. God is just patiently waiting. Jesus looked out across Jerusalem and said, “Oh how I would have gathered your as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you would not!”
We keep looking over to the big things, all the future accomplishments we are striving for. The Holy Spirit has already given you just what it is going to take to bridge the gap.
To my surprise the Jordan river is very narrow in spots. So narrow that you can almost jump across it. It only takes a couple of small things, maybe even only one little thing, to keep you out of the promised land. Isn’t it time to cross over the Jordan?
