A Creative God

By   •   November 11   •   Topics:

John Knox, with an all-consuming soul-concern for his country, prayed, “Give me Scotland, or I die!” His earnest travail was rewarded with a spiritual rebirth in his land. This is what is termed “praying in the Spirit.” It is the manifestation of a deep spiritual concern for others, and it is instilled by the Spirit of God. This kind of prayer can leap over oceans, speed across burning deserts, spring over mountains, bound through jungles, and carry the healing, helping power of the Gospel to the object of prayer.

That “the Spirit Himself makes intercession” indicates that it is actually God pleading, praying, and mourning through us. Thus we become co-laborers with God, actual partners with Him; our lives are lifted from the low plane of selfishness to the high plane of creativeness with God. John Knox travailed, and the Church in Scotland broke into new life.

    The Holy Spirit of God is an integral part of the Godhead. Ask for his help at any time and he is faithful to provide. When the Holy Spirit intercedes in prayer all things are possible.

  8. Richard Bainbridge says:

    This scripture is commonly used to qualify the speaking of other tongues in public. Is the speaking of this gibberish of the Holy Spirit, or fake. I guess my question to you is, is what people call “speaking in tongues” really speaking in a Godly language? Thank You.

  9. Max says:

    Father give me more capacity and knowledge so that you can work through me for for the physical and spiritual benefit of others.

      O! what a wonderful God we have. He even helps us to pray. Prayer in the Spirit carries the healing power of God. So learn to pray in the Spirit. Pray in tongues when words don’t come to you. Thanks You Jesus. You want us to pray and even helps us to pray. Glory to God. Amen
