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 ‬ ‭8:27‬ (NKJV)‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬


Little six-year-old girls love Barbie dolls and many other toys! If you thought of buying a Barbie doll with black hair for a child as a birthday gift, you have to first convince the child that she would love the Barbie with the black hair. The child may have other ideas of wanting a bicycle, a toy car, a dress, etc.

Once the child is convinced that she wants Barbie with the black hair, when she gets this present on her birthday, she will be super excited that you ‘knew’ she wanted a Barbie with black hair. But you only just convinced her to ask for it and she got it in reality!

Similarly, when you pray, the Holy Spirit knows what has been reserved for you. Like the Barbie doll, your answers are already kept for you by God. All the Holy Spirit does is to convince you to want these and get you to ask for the Father’s will. And anytime you ask for things God already wants to give you, you get them because that is His will.

Beloved, when you lean on the Holy Spirit’s direction in prayer, you are lining up with the will of our Father.
