God’s Backup Plan

Depression, anxiety… Any of the “personality”disorder can run rampant in our lives…

At the worst – of it just reaching out to God can seem impossible… When words can’t express how we feel… The emotions are bouncing around and any chance at “sane” thoughts are too scrambled…

But God has a built in backup system…

Romans 8:26–27 (NLT): And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for.

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…

When Jesus was in the garden, on the night he was betrayed and all alone…

Luke 22:43–44 (LEB): And an angel from heaven appeared to him, strengthening him. And being in anguish, he began praying more fervently and his sweat became like drops of blood falling down to the ground

Yup… Jesus gets it… He understands agony… He totally gets what we experience…

And from that He’s able to help guide us through our hard times…
