S: O earth, do not cover my blood, may my cry never be laid to rest! 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. (Job 16:18-21)
I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God. I myself will see Him with my own eyes - I, and not another. How my heart years within me! (Job 19: 25-27)
O: We have a witness and an advocate in heaven - Jesus. He intercedes for us, He pleads for us. He cries to His Father for us. In every circumstance, we have a friend to run to and know that the mere intention is to rescue us from where we are stuck at that moment. When everything is hopeless and teared down - the work of our Redeemer will be seen boldly with our own eyes. He will be seen as living and active.
A: Believe and be in faith that on our situation, Jesus is with us - not just crying with us but interceding and pleading for our best. Be in faith, be still, that the hands of the Redeemer is at work - that in everything that we go through, one day, we will see Him standing over it all.
P: Dear Father, my heart yearns for you. I feel so unrest, so troubled, so helpless that I desperately need to feel your very presence with me. Assure me with your heart Oh my God. Help my faith to believe that even everything else is falling apart, I will see you standing over it. You are my intercessor, my friend and my Redeemer…Thank you….
