Beyond the last ounce that we’ve got

Even when Spring is here, we might wake up to a gloomy morning – so unlike Spring. Where are the cheerful rays of the sun? Where are the colors and noises that warm the heart?

For some of us, the goings do not always seem easy. Those of us whom the Lord seems to have placed us on a track of which we have to fight in order not to quit, you’ll know what I mean.

For some of us, we found ourselves being on a continuous uphill battle. We are compelled to  combat with the intimidation of the world, and pursue Him with every ounce that we’ve got, every bit of our being…

We cried out for coverings of prayers for courage and endurance. And before anyone was able to stand up for us, we have already been secured by our greatest Friend and Intercessor, Jesus Christ.  He would gather all our tears, attend to our pains, and present all our needs before the Throne of Grace.

Though we might not be able to see it clear, we know that we are not just thriving with the last ounce that we’ve got. He’s already taken over our burden and our battle. He’s our Mediator, our High Priest, our Advocate, our Counselor, and the greatest Intercessor for us at the Father’s right hand. We could trust Him for who He is. We could trust Him for the future that we’ll share with Him and in Him.

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. — 1 Timothy 2:5

For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us. —Hebrews 9:24

Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power endless life. For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedic. –Hebrews 7:16-17

Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such as High Priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens. –Hebrews 8:1

Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. —Romans 8:34

Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. — Hebrews 7:25

My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. — 1 John 2:1
