He Always Lives to Intercede for YOU!


"Therefore he is able to save completely 
those who come to God through him, because 
he always lives to intercede for them".
Hebrews 7:25

He always lives to intercede for me.


for you.

Jesus is praying for you right now.

And always.

Do you really know that?

Do you think about that?

This point was emphasized during my pastor's sermon yesterday.

Really meditate on that.

It ruined me.

In a good way.

To think of the moments when I know He had my back.

He was praying for me.

I know the bible says he ALWAYS is.

ALWAYS.

WOW.

But there are moments in my life.

Some of the hardest moments.

When I remember them, to think 


 He was praying for me through them.

Fighting for me through them.

It's awe inspiring.

It brought me to tears.


And all I could think to say over and over again


inside my head as the praise band played


was thank you Jesus.


Thank you Jesus.
