On a daily basis, I have the opportunity to meet with individuals who are struggling in some area of their lives, and feel overwhelmed. Many are facing hard decisions regarding relationships they are in; others are hurt or disappointed by someone and can’t forgive. Some are unsure about their salvation and even feel hopeless. So often we just need a listening ear or an encouraging word. We need godly people in our lives, who have walked before us, whom we can go to for counsel and prayer; however our greatest guide is the Holy Spirit.
Scripture says, “The Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will.” And Jesus is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand pleading for us. How comforting is that! I am so thankful our God knows our hearts and our struggles. Years ago I learned that nothing is too hard for God. He has given us countless examples of His power and overwhelming victory throughout the Bible and in the lives of others.
Are you in a place where you are overwhelmed? Do you need answers? Do you need someone to listen and then plead for you before our Heavenly Father? Approach His throne – overwhelming victory is ours!
