Sister would be so proud of BoyMaybe the better question is, “Where is your Savior today?”  Did you know that when Jesus finished His work related to the cross that He sat down at the right hand of His Father who is in heaven?  Romans 8:34 tells us in part when speaking of Jesus, “who is even at the right hand of God.”

So, when I sit down, it usually means that I have finished for the day and am taking a breather or maybe watching some television or reading.  Is this what Jesus did when He sat down?  No, of course not.  The rest of the above verse tells us something very special about our Savior: “…….who also makes intercession for us.”

All of us feel alone at times, perplexed at times, and perhaps pensive about problems and situations and circumstances beyond what we think is in our control.  How special it is to know that Jesus Himself is not only praying for us, He is in intercession over us!

Did I hear you say that you already knew this?  Let’s honestly realize that how we act in times of trouble, in times of temptation, in times of testing and trials, reveals just where we think Jesus is and just what we think Jesus is doing, and just how much we think Jesus cares for us!  Selah!

How we react in battle gives us a hint as to whether we really believe that Jesus is still in a manger, still on the cross, or is so busy and so big and that we’re so insignificant and alone, that we don’t have his undivided attention.  When we get slammed on the side of the face with adversity, what do we do, what do we think, and what do we say?

If your Savior is out of the manger today and if Jesus Christ is on the throne interceding for you, you should be thinking and saying and doing what is in agreement with Him and His word.

God is fighting for you.  If He’s for you, who can stand against you?

You and I live after Jesus created all that we see, after His birth in a manger, after the cross of Calvary, after Jesus was resurrected from the dead and won the victory for us, after He got back the keys to death, Hell and the grave, and after He started interceding for us individually.

It’s time we thought it; it’s time we speak it; it’s time we act like it; it’s time we believe it.
