I woke up this morning to a beautiful memory. It was one of my joyfully confident daughter Shukurani at about 5 or 6 years of age, tugging along a sad or frightened friend, goading my attention, and then basically placing her friend in front of me, stepping back and saying “Hug her Mami!”. She would gleefully watch as I complied. I cant remember how many little girls I hugged at ‘her command’. But know how blessed I felt for doing so,and that the little girls always skipped and giggled back to their game . She was confident, that whatever her friends her were going through, a hug from her Mami would make it alright.
God reminded me that this was a lot like what Jesus did in making intercession for us before God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. He was confident of The Father Heart of God, and that none that He brought to Him, would be turned away. It went deeper for me than I have words to express…but it made it okay, to approach The Father, through The Son . I hope you get this…
“All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out. “For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.…”John 6:37-38
“Jesus said to him, “I Am The Way, and The Truth, and The Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” John 14:6
Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.” Hebrews 7:25
