In fact, when it talks about “the Spirit helps in our weaknesses,” in the Greek language, there is actually a compound word that literally means “to take hold together with/against.” 

When we don’t know what we should pray for, the Holy Spirit takes hold together with us against our weaknesses or against our inabilities to produce results, and He prays the perfect will of God.  What an incredible work of the Spirit!

4. We should expect the Holy Spirit to work the miraculous.

In Romans 15:18-19, Paul tells us this:

For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ has not accomplished through me, in word and deed, to make the Gentiles obedient—in mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from Jerusalem and round about to Illyricum I have fully preached the Gospel of Christ.

Signs and wonders by the power of the Spirit of God…God is still a miracle-working God.  He will work miracles in your life as you trust Him.  We need to step out and trust the Holy Spirit and expect Him to do the miraculous!
