The apostle Paul said being filled with the Holy Spirit – what we consider to be a joyful experience – “feels like groaning, as if in childbirth”. Yes, he compares it to one of the greatest pains a human can bear. Doesn’t sound too joyful, does it? But then we recall how we forgot about the pain when we held that child for the first time. God us up to something good in our “groanings” – and even during our groaning seasons, He continues to encourage us and is at work blessing our lives!
