Romans 8:26–27 tells us, “And the Holy Spirit helps us in our distress. For we don’t even know what we should pray for, nor how we should pray. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will”
What is God’s will?
As humans, we are always interested in the here and now—what will benefit us temporarily.
God, however, sees things a bit differently. He is also interested in the long term and the eternal.
In other words, God has a bigger plan than my personal happiness in the given moment. He desires my holiness as I am conformed into the image of Jesus Christ.
It’s my prayer that we would be conformed into the image of Christ!
