Who fights your battles for you? Anyone? There are so many issues that we have to wrestle with every day. There is so much that seems way beyond my reach, way beyond my job description, too much heavy lifting for my back to bear. How about you? Are you and I in the same boat?
Affluent people spend a lot of money to make sure that they have the best lawyers to take care of the complicated issues in business and in life. Celebrities hire bodyguards and security experts to make sure that people do not mess with them. How about you? Who protects your interests?
Personally, I don’t have thousands that I can spend on lawyers. I certainly cannot hire a personal bodyguard or security forces for me and my family. I do know that I need someone covering my back when the going gets tough. That is one of the reasons that I value my relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ. He is well able to handle anything that comes my way in life and is very willing to be my advocate and intercede with Almighty God and intervene in my behalf.
Jesus Fights Your Battles for You
So now we have a High Priest who perfectly fits our needs: completely holy, uncompromised by sin, with authority extending as high as God’s Presence in Heaven itself. Hebrews 7:26 (msg)
Now that is assurance! Jesus knows me and my loved ones needs, even before we do. Our needs and His great wisdom and power is a perfect fit. One of the names of God that gives a little more insight to who He is and who He wants to be for us is Jehovah Shammah: The God who is there for us! Do you want Jesus to be advocating and interceding for you, your loved ones, and your needs? Do you want Almighty God to be there for you? Put your life in the hands of the One who can handle anything that will ever come your way, even throughout eternity. Ask Jesus to take charge over your life and your precious ones today.
Therefore, He is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through Him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf. Hebrews 7:25 (nlt)
