Transcript of Groans
the Believer from Death:
how the Christian Lives:
our Thoughts: Romans 8:5-6
in Us: Romans 8:11
our Identity: Romans 8:15-16
The Spirit groans in the hearts of God’s children to pray when we can’t . . .
and exactly for what we need.
In Us and Through Us
“for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.”
His cry coming out of Us
“And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!”
The groaning’s of the Spirit are the anguished cries of the suffering Believer inspired by, inhabited by, and communicated by the Spirit to the Father.
"For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!"
Groaning and childbirth
Weakness: Sickness, Physical Deformities, Disease, Sinful Suffering, Pain, Nuisance, and Incapacity
"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."
"What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?"
Your weakness is normal, expected, and not shameful.
In the Spirit’s groaning’s, God the Spirit is talking to God the Father about your hurt, weakness, and hardship.
In the Spirit’s groaning’s, God the Spirit is talking to God the Father about what this child needs in perfect accord with His will.
