Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
Have you ever been lost for words? It can be an uncomfortable place to be, but it can also be the result of overwhelming feelings. Not knowing where to start or what to say, or ask for. This verse from Romans is an amazing reminder for us. When Jesus rose he then returned to the Father and is now seated at God’s right hand. This is a place of authority and power. And what does Jesus choose to do with that power? He interceeds for us. Jesus is interceding for us, He sees us and knows our needs and shares these with the Father. We are not condemned. Instead, we are held in the hands of the risen Jesus. Jesus has defeated death and been exalted to the highest place, and because of this we can be assured that we are not alone, the Father knows us and our needs. Our Saviour interceeds on our behalf!
PRAYER: Jesus, thank you that you see and know my need and you intercede on my behalf. Help me to cry out to you in my need, and trust that you hold me in your care. Amen.
