Day Four: Divine Counselor

Romans 8:26 (NIV)
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.

“Ask the Holy Spirit to show you what your real problem is and how you need to pray. Paul said that often we do not know how to pray as we ought. But the Holy Spirit prays in and through us, and makes intercession for us. Sometimes the Holy Spirit uses a temporary assistant in the form of a human counselor, who can help us to perceive what the real problem is. Sometimes the Spirit is able to do this through God’s Word or through some incident in life that suddenly makes us aware of our real problem. For it is important that we realize the true problem and know how we should pray.” (David Seamand, Healing for Damaged Emotions)

We are not alone in our weakness or in our infirmities. The Holy Spirit is our divine counselor leading us and helping us in this healing process. He is washing us, purifying us, transforming us, and making us more and more like Jesus from the inside out.

Prayer: Holy Spirit, wash me, purify me, and transform every part of me. Make me more and more like Jesus. In Jesus’ name, amen.
