A Heart On Fire OLS — Week Seven
Have you ever been in a difficult situation — and just wished there was someone who would step in on your behalf and help?
Dear friend, today, you need to know that there is One who is your protector, your provider, and your intercessor. It is Jesus!
According to Hebrews 7:25, Jesus always lives to make intercession for us. He does for us what we can never do for ourselves. He went to the cross, drank the ultimate cup of suffering, and died in our place, that we might be forgiven of sins, and receive eternal life. Since He has paid the price for your sins and given His life for yours, is there anything now that He would not do for you within the context of God’s good and perfect will?
You can depend on your Lord, dear friend. He is for you! He is wild about you! And He will defend you. He intercedes for you. If someone comes against you, woe be to them, for the Lord is your dread champion, and will provide and protect you. He is the one who fights for you and goes before you when the way is difficult (Exodus 14:14, Deuteronomy 1:30-31). So run to Him when you are in that difficult situation. Stay close, hiding under the shadow of His wings (Psalm 17:8). Oh how great is your refuge when the Lord is your intercessor.
In Week 7, Days 1-7 of A Heart On Fire we studied the intercession of our Lord in atoning for our sins, coming to our aid when we are tempted, helping us in time of need, in establishing the New Covenant, and giving us entrance forever into the kingdom of God. We had the great privilege to spend time in the book of Hebrews and looked at the many facets of our Lord there. One of the main themes throughout Hebrews is the Supremacy of Christ, carrying with it the big truth that Jesus is better. No matter where you may think your help is found, you need to know that Jesus is better than anything this world can offer. He is the One to run to when you are in trouble.
We are encouraged:
Today, may you enjoy the privileges and provision of the Lord as your intercessor.
Your assignment this week is the Week 8, Days 1-7, in A Heart On Fire.
♥ God bless you as you continue this great adventure of knowing Him!
In our discussion, I would love for all of us to share the answers to these questions: Where in your life do you sense the greatest need for the Lord’s intercession? What was your favorite part of your study this week?
