In His Prayers

Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.
(Romans 8:34)

Jesus is praying for you.  Think about that this morning.  Jesus is praying for you. Jesus–the very son of God–the One who knows the heart of God–the One who died for you–is praying for you.

By name.

Yes, by name. He is right now before the throne of God, speaking your name to His Father.  Say your name to yourself right now.  Now close your eyes, say it again, and envision Jesus before His father saying your name.

I bet you smiled.

Yet He’s not just saying your name, He’s interceding for you.  He’s entreating His Father on your behalf.  For He loves you.  He cares for you.   He wants God’s best for you.  And He knows the will of His Father.   Jesus is not just praying an aimless prayer filled with empty words; He’s praying the will of God for you.  He knows exactly where you are, exactly what you need, and exactly where you are going.

He is praying for you.

Right now. This very moment.  Jesus is before His Father on your behalf.

So be encouraged today, my friend.  Jesus is praying for you.  Even if you feel no one else understands what you’re going through, Jesus does.  And Jesus is praying for you.

He loves you.  He cares for you.  He wants God’s best for you.

He is praying for you.

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?…No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
(Romans 8:35-39)
