The Voice of the Intercessor

DO YOU look down on people because you think you're better than them?


Do you think you made someone because God used you during their climb to prominence?


GOD RAISES one and lowers another. He decides who to bring down and lift (Ps. 75:7).


If God will bless you, he will send someone. If Satan will attack you, he will send someone too.


THE DEVIL sent some Pharisees to trap Jesus. They brought a woman caught in adultery to him—and cited the Law of Moses.


But Jesus knew they were not after her but him.


THE BATTLES you face are not yours.


Your weapons are made to work through God to pull down things that have settled themselves and are unwilling to go (II Cor. 10:4).


HOWEVER, Jesus looked away and wrote on the ground.


She did not say anything—and Jesus said nothing.


SOME skirmishes only deserve your silence.


I pray that God will teach you when to be quiet and when to speak. And when you speak, he will put the right words in your mouth for your detractors.


CRITICISM and fault finding are great traits in the right settings.


However, anytime you accuse someone, you may be extending the devil’s reach.


THEY DEMANDED an answer, so he said: Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her (John 8:7).


Jesus stood in between the woman and the mob.


THE SECRET to being an intercessor is looking into the mirror and reminding yourself that you’re a recovering Pharisee.


When you remember where you were taken from, it'll be easy to forgive.


AS YOU go to your megachurches this Sunday, remember you're a sinner saved by grace.


The difference between you and the unbeliever is the grace of God over your life.


ABRAHAM understood the mercy of God and interceded for Sodom. (Gen. 18:16-33).

Intercession

BUT JONAH ignored this office and wouldn’t go to Nineveh to preach (Jonah 1). He believed more in God’s justice than his grace.


The Pharisees adopted the same posture.


THE OFFICE of the intercessor is one every believer is called into.


God is looking for people who will stand in the gap and pray (Ezekias. 22:30). He wants to pray through you.


YOU CANNOT sit on the fence; you’re either an accuser or an intercessor.


Jesus stood between the mob and the woman and spoke as an intercessor.


When you intercede, you partake in the ministry of Jesus.


IF YOU ARE MARRIED to someone who is yet to know the Lord, your responsibility is to intercede for them.


Even when they don't treat you well, God still wants you to treat them well. You owe God that duty.


 

When you intercede, you partake in the ministry of Jesus.


CHRISTIANS do not pay evil but good for evil (I Pet. 3:9).


Saul did not treat David well, but David spared his life.


When the king realized this, he wept.


You are more righteous than I, Saul said. You have treated me well, but I have treated you badly.


You have just told me about the good you did to me; the Lord delivered me into your hands, but you did not kill me (I Kings 24:17-18).


WHEN JESUS looked up, her accusers were gone.


Where are your accusers? They are gone, she said.


Go on your way. From now on, don’t sin (John 8:10-11).


Bringing it Together


THE VOICE of the intercessor is always louder than that of the accuser.


It’s the voice of mercy and grace—the voice of the intercessor is the voice of God.


Never stop interceding!
