One thing I love about CrossFit is how it humbles us. No matter what your strength is you will have a weakness somewhere. Our weakness humbles us in the gym and in life. If life was smooth sailing and we were great at everything and never had any problems, would we depend on God for anything? Romans 8:28, and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. What this means is God uses everything in believers’ lives and everything encompasses good and bad. But the difficult things cause us to be broken and transformed in his likeness. Everything that happens to us, the easy, the difficult, saddness and pain have a purpose, that is to make us more like Jesus. The “good” in Romans 8:28 is referring to the eternal good. The spiritual goodness that last forever not just here on for the time on earth. Which when compared to eternity will be like a blink of an eye.
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 through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.
