Romans 8:27

Romans 8:27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

The bride in the photo above has searched her bridegroom’s heart and is confident of his love for her and that their hopes and dreams are set on the right course. However, she cannot be certain as only God can search hearts and know for sure about a person’s desires, intentions, motivations, and such. In verse 27 above, God is in such harmony with the Holy Spirit that he knows the mind of the Spirit and that the Spirit intercedes according to his will. The Holy Spirit is in perfect harmony with God as well and in his groanings becomes the perfect advocate for believers who struggle in their weakness of prayer. Believers are in Christ and are doubly blessed to have the Holy Spirit dwelling in them and interceding on their behalf in accordance with the will of God.

Praise our triune God that everything needed for our salvation is provided.
