Freedom to Groan in Release

Freedom to Groan in Release
Allowing Holy Spirit To Intercede
by Brenda D. Flowers

Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. (Romans 8: 26-27, NKJV)

Children of God, we have victorious freedom as we allow Holy Spirit to intercede through us.

Recently, I have realized more and more the power in the release of the sound of His groan. When I am overwhelmed by sadness, Holy Spirit truly comforts as I trust Him in this release. I find a place to be alone and let the sound of His groan go forth.

We can trust that God truly intercedes and helps us in our times of need.

As I was preparing this blog post, I was guided to watch a beautiful testimony of Joni Eareckson Tada. She shared how God helped her by showing her that Holy Spirit intercedes for her.

 Joni has impacted me by her testimonies and her obedient life in service to the Lord for more than forty years. It touched me that I was led to the YouTube video in which she was talking about Romans 8.

As a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the neck down after a diving accident at the age of seventeen, Joni chose to believe the promises of God for her. Joni testifies that God gives her His victorious power to live here on earth as a bold witness. She releases her cares to the Lord and He helps her every day.

 I am very thankful to be in the body of Christ with people, like Joni, who love the Lord and are not afraid to testify of their sincere faith.

When overwhelmed by life’s circumstances, it’s okay to admit to God we feel helpless.

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Cor. 12:9a, NKJV)

Prayer: Lord God, thank You for the beautiful promise of Your intercession for us, Your children. May we understand fully the freedom we have to come to You in our times of need, knowing You will help us. Your sound of intercession provides release. You give us the strength to do Your will, living victoriously. May we boldly testify of Your help in our lives and may we honor You: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


  1. The groaning of the Holy Spirit… a heavenly language that only God truly understands! When I am weak, He is strong! Amen!
