25But if we hope for what we do not yet see, we wait for it patiently. 26In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know how we ought to pray, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans too deep for words. 27And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.—Romans 8:25-27
Can you remember a time when you were so engrossed in the details of your own life that you couldn’t hear God’s voice at all? In times like those, it’s difficult to detect the Father’s whisper. So instead, He may shout through unusual circumstances to get our attention.
We must learn how to look for God in all our circumstances, from the wild and unexpected to the simple and mundane. Whether our situation seems unbelievably good or unbearably bad, we are wise to step back and ask the Lord to help us view the matter from His perspective.
To help you see God’s perspective in the matter, the Holy Spirit will clear away the fog or noise that is blocking you from hearing God. He will lead you on the path God has set for you in the situation. With the Holy Spirit guiding you, you can be assured of arriving at the destination where God intended you to be.
