Jesus is Victor!

I have this Billy Graham "Hope for Each Day" know, one of those that you flip each day and keep forever. I had not flipped the pages in over a month, so when I flipped to today it was amazing how much I needed it. So I am passing it along to others I know who need it:

"We need to rely constantly on the Holy Spirit. We need to remember that Christ dwells in us through the Holy Spirit....It is important that we stand aside and let Him take over in all our choices and decisions. We know that the Holy Spirit prays for us (Romans 8:26), and what a comfort that should be to the weakest of us. A vicorious Christian is one who, in spite of worries, inner conflicts, and tensions, is confident that God is in control and will be victorious in the end. Whatever our difficulties, whatever our circumstances, we must remember, as Corrie ten Boom used to say, 'Jesus is victor!'"

Romans 8:26 reads: In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.

I have to say that I have definately allowed the Holy Spirit to pray on my behalf before...on more than one occasion. I was do distraught that the words would not come, and I just bowed my head, and ask the Holy Spirit to pray for me. It is pretty cool!
