The Spirit will intercede

Since moving to Korea, with everything we have had going on, at the fore front of my mind is adoption. I have a list of things that need to be done, that we need to follow through with and its so overwhelming that its hard to know exactly where to start! I have been especially overwhelmed about just how to pray. For finances, for our future children, for the birth parents, the agency, etc. I read this verse yesterday and it was exactly what I needed to hear!
Romans 8:23-27
” Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
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. 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.”
In my weakness,and when I am confused, overhwlemed and unsure of how to pray, the Spirit is helping me, interceding for me in accordance to the will of God! That is wild! It is always so amazing to me that when I try to carry burddens on my own how overwhelming it is,I am so thankful for the help that comes with placing my trust in the Lord and that even at this very moment, the Spirit is interceding on my behalf.
