Does God ever speak to you things you don’t fully understand? Words that are so meaningful and helpful to you, but then you think, man, I need to know what that actually means.
"...the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groaning too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God (Romans 8:26-27).When we lost the baby (I know, I have to blog about it because I’m working through it), God told me that our loss would be redeemed. Jesus poured out His life for healing the sick, restoring the broken, overcoming death... Jesus’ blood is enough to take a loss that’s not from Him and bring about something good... something overcoming...
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).I looked up definitions of "redeem". Here are some of my favourites...
- To compensate for the faults or bad aspects/effects of something;
- To free from what distresses or harms;
- To repair, restore, re-establish, reinstate;
- To make good, fulfill;
- To defray.
I'll write more tomorrow!
