Romans 8:34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died–more than that, who was raised–who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. 

Hebrews 7: 25 Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.

All around us is chaos, confusion and fear.  People are desperate.  Jobs lost.  Businesses bankrupt.  What in the world can we do?  

DO NOT FEAR- Jesus is praying for you right now.  It is hard to comprehend the depth and breadth of Jesus’ relationship with each one of us.  Difficult to understand His love for us.  But He does and He is intimately involved in the mechanism of our life and God’s Word says Jesus is so concerned for us that He is praying for us right now.  

         REFRESHING- I find it refreshing that Jesus is intimately involved in and concerned about the things in my life.  

         ENCOURAGING- It is encouraging to me that when I go to Christ in prayer He is already praying for me, my life and what I am facing.

         TRUTH- As much as the evil one tries to cut out of society and convince us that we are alone, adrift, a loser-Jesus is actively involved in praying for us in the spiritual realm, about the physical things that we are facing.  WE ARE NEVER ALONE!  Jesus always has our back.  He knows what we are facing and is consistently seeking to help us take that next step.  

SPEND TIME WITH JESUS- Christ is interested in our presence-body, soul and spirit.  Begin now spending time with Jesus listening to Him, reading the Written Word of God as we spend time with the Word of God.  There is a great battle going on in the spiritual realm seeking to destroy us and Jesus outfits us to fight that spiritual where we cannot see, touch or get a grip on our opponent.  This is a real battle and it is raging all around us.  In American today people don’t think about spiritual beings, especially those that are opposing God but that doesn’t change the fact that you and I are involved in a war in the spiritual realm.  Jesus equips us with the wisdom, mercy and grace that we need to face this spiritual battle.  Spend time with Jesus.  

STUDY GOD’S WORD- there is great strength and power for you to face every situation you come against in the Word of God.  It is God’s spoken Word in a written format and it is God’s instruction manual for our life.  U 

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 

         Psalm 91:2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!”

         Psalm 27:5 For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock. 

         Psalm 31:19-20 19 Oh, how abundant is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you and worked for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of the children of mankind!  20 In the cover of your presence you hide them from the plots of men; you store them in your shelter from the strife of tongues. 

         Psalm 71:3 Be to me a rock of refuge, to which I may continually come; you have given the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress. 

         Proverbs 14:26. In the fear of the LORD one has strong confidence, and his children will have a refuge.

         Proverbs 18:10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe. 

Psalm 18:2-3  The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. 

3 I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies. 


The Lord God is your strength.  He will carry you through the hopelessness and fear of this current situation to a position of confidence in Him and an understanding of where your strength is.  God will make a way.  Christ will never leave you.  Use this time to undergird your relationship with the Lord in Christ Jesus.  Remember God is God and we are not.  


Fear today, gone tomorrow
God stands ready 
Call to Him, He will steady
Your life, your heart, your fears

The battle is won
In the hearts and minds 
As we struggle in the spiritual realm
We can’t even see what we are facing

Everyday Jesus will wipe our tears away
Even when no one can see them
The truth is the battle rages 
A war going on in our hearts

Turn to Jesus, He is praying for you
Let Christ have your heart
His desire is to strengthen you
To face every days battle

With strength, and hope
Confidence growing
Jesus loves you
Giving you level ground to stand on

No longer at the mercy of the world
The flesh and the devil
Your growth developed on the battlefield 
Where Jesus wins your day
