There are burdens we bear but do not understand. There are inarticulate reaching for things we cannot comprehend. We sometimes have groanings which cannot be uttered. At times we cannot express what is inside of us but we know that God is praying in us, for something that needs His touch and that He understands.
During these times we know that He hears, He loves, He understands, He receives; and He separates from our prayer all that is imperfect, ignorant and wrong. He then presents the rest before the throne on high and our prayer is heard, accepted and answered in His name.
- B. Simpson
It is not necessary to be always speaking to God or always hearing from God, to have communion with Him; there is an inarticulate fellowship more sweet than words. The saint and the Savior can go on for hours in the silent fellowship of love, and he be busy about the most common things, and yet conscious that every little thing he does is touched with the complexion of God’s presence, and the sense of His approval and blessing.
When pressed with burdens and troubles too complicated to put into words and too mysterious to tell or understand, how sweet it is to fall back into His blessed arms, and just sob out the sorrow that we cannot speak!
