My Always-Living Advocate

“Jesus… holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever. 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… We have such a high priest, one who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, a minister in the holy places.” “He who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. Jesus Christ… at the right hand of God, indeed is interceding for us.” Hebrews 7:24-25; 8:1-2; Romans 8:27,34

Permanent, continuing forever, always living, seated at God’s right hand….and interceding perfectly for me! He is for me, who can be against me? He knows all my needs, how can I lack supply? He works all things for good, how can I fear? He never leaves nor fails, why would I feel alone? He is seated victorious, why should I be shaken? He is alive forever, why do I doubt? He is light when I see dark, why would I fret? His hope is an anchor for my soul, how can I worry? (Romans 8:31-39; Matthew 6:8; Philippians 4:19; John 8:12; Hebrews 6:19;13:5)

Great comfort I find in knowing my Jesus is in constant prayer for me, and for each of His children. He is by my side and on my side. I seek to know His mind and pray regularly and from scripture, but He is the Perfect One, and never ceases praying rightly. What a Savior, High Priest, and Friend!

Lord Jesus, You know the way that I take and are my Advocate always and forever. Settle me in quiet trust that You know best, and teach me to pray perfectly with You according to Your good and sovereign will. (Job 23:10; Luke 11:1-4)
