Jesus Intercedes

“Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died–more than that, who was raised to life–is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us” (Romans 8:34).

God cares about your worries and struggles more than we think. Jesus can relate to our weaknesses and has been tempted in every way that we experience, and because He can relate, He sits next to his father daily making intercession for us. Imagine that, Jesus is praying for us, that we remain strong and overcome our struggles.

In Luke 22:31, he cautioned Peter that the devil was after the disciples to sift them as wheat, but that he had prayed for Peter that his faith would not fail. Jesus asked Peter to strengthen his brothers once he was restored.

Satan’s lie is that God does not care, that he does not see or understand our need, but this is far from the truth. He will not cause us to be tempted more than we can bear and he has attached to every trial and temptation a way of escape.

Look for that escape because there is a way even when you don’t see it. God is able, He loves you, He cares for you and we will overcome when we keep trusting and believing. Often we pray to overcome challenges, to escape trials and difficulties and this can cause us to feel far away from God. Nothing can separate us from a God who is acquainted with our sorrow and it is when we are being tested when God looks after us the most. In fact, Jesus is constantly calling our names to the father.

Stay in the word of God and in his presence, knowing that he is nearest to you when you feel your heart is breaking. And those times when you are so deeply burdened with anguish, that you do not know what to pray, God understands tears and Jesus is constantly calling your name to the father.
“Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them” (Hebrews 7:25).
