an advocate

Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high. My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God; on behalf of a man he pleads with God as a man pleads for his friend.”  These are the words spoken by Job (in Job 16:19-21) after God allowed him to lose absolutely everything…he lost possessions, wealth, health, and his entire family! Still he understood that Jesus Christ was in heaven with God interceding for him. If that’s not the epitome of being ever mindful, I don’t know a better example.

You too may find yourself struggling and beginning to wonder if this is all for real. Is there really a God? Has He turned His face from me? Will I ever move on from this terrible place? The answer resounds as the book of Job ends. Job 42:10 says “…the Lord made him prosperous again and gave him twice as much as he had before.”

Friends, we have an interceder on our behalf PRESENTLY making our pains, fears, worries, and all requests known to God…TRUST HIM!
