If only we could hear it! How obvious yet we missed it. How amazing that it was right in front of us and we didn’t realize it! What do we need most at the beginning of 2019? What is it? What do we need to hear?
Here it is: If you could hear Jesus praying for you in the next room, you would not fear a million enemies! Imagine being able to hear Jesus praying for you? Here are the explosive facts about about Jesus praying for you.
He started praying for you the moment you got saved. The world can’t enjoy the benefit of His prayers. John 17: 9 says, “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.
He ill never stop praying for you. Hebrews 7: 25 “Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.” At this moment He is lifting your situation before the Father and that prayer is unending.
He prayed that Satan would not touch you. John 17: 15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.
He prayed for you in advance of your greatest hour of testing, just as He did for Peter. Luke 22:32 “But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”
Here is the most important fact of Jesus praying for you: He says you are His. Let’s take a closer look at what that means. His love for you is not just tender it is fierce.
Consider the mama grizzly as she snuggles her cub. She is the essence of love. Now, try to come between her and her cub. The loving mom instantly becomes the most terrifying creature on earth. She will stop at nothing to protect her cub. Both the tender moment and the terrifying one are expressions of the same love.
Here’s the thing…that instinct is from God. The same Jesus who comforts you with unmatched tenderness turns His wrath on the evil one when you are threatened. It would be breathtaking to see the difference in His intercession before the Father when you need comfort, and when you need to be rescued from Satan’s attack.
He will not let anything come between you and Him. Paul said it this way: Romans 8:38 “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Imagine what He is saying about you in prayer at this very moment! That is why I say: if you could hear Jesus praying for you in the next room, you would not fear a million enemies. Faith will let you hear Him praying and every fear you have about 2019 will instantly evaporate.
