It then dawned on me that in fair weather I never pay attention to these important pieces of car equipment such as car windscreen wipers or fog light that save lives and also prevent a lot unnecessary misery we can face when we are driving through stormy weathers.
I am also reminded that I acted the same way in my spiritual journey. In fair weather I sometimes forget my Helper but when the stormy days arrive and I can’t see clearly to navigate through that spiritual road, when my sight is weak, those are the days the Holy Spirit become that car wiper that ensures my safety to my destination. He worked so hard to make me realised what is ahead, to clear my vision to navigate through those dark days with peace and assurance. This scripture reminds me that in those stormy days. How precious it is that I have a Divine Helper.
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.
