For in this hope we were saved. But hope the object of which is seen is not hope. For how can one hope for what he already sees?
But if we hope for what is still unseen by us, we wait for it with patience and composure.
So too the Set Apart Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.
And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the Set Apart Spirit what His intent is, because the Spirit intercedes and pleads before Our Creator in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with Our Creator’s will.
We are assured and know that Our Creator being a partner in their labor all things work together and are fitting into a plan for good to and for those who love Our Creator and are called according to His design and purpose.
For those whom He foreknew of whom He was aware and loved beforehand, He also destined from the beginning foreordaining them to be molded into the image of His Son and share inwardly His likeness, that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.
And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also esteemed raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being.
What then shall we say to ALL this? If Our Creator is for us, who can be against us? Who can be our foe, if Our Creator is on our side?
