The Devotion – Romans 8:24-26
Published on October 11, 2021
If you knew there was help would you walk in hope? God planned before time began that we would have help in time of need. When God spoke to Adam in the garden and said where are you, He was speaking to the human species He created in His image and His likeness. God’s image is Spirit. John 4:24 tells us God is “Spirit” and those who “worship” Him do it in “Spirit” and in truth. The word worship in the text could be read as to draw near to as to kiss. You and I are not likely to draw that close to someone that we know we have “done wrong” Have you ever said to someone: “Why did you do me that way?”
Could God have called Adam before trying to connect to His Spirit and it was dead? In other words, could He have been saying “Where is the one I created in my image and my likeness?”
There are times when we live our lives as if we had no help or hope.
Brothers and sisters, we have hope because we do have help! Even when we walk as though we are hopeless, the Helper who is In us cries out on our behalf Spirit to Spirit to our Creator! He will speak of our specific needs right on time! Walk-in hope today because you do have help!
For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. Likewise, the Spirit helps us in our weaknesses. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
Walking in hope today René
