The devotions for today in my mind are part of our present reality. I know that my Redeemer lives and He sits at the right hand of God. God so completely addressed His Sovereignty, His Holiness, His Justice, His Will, His control of History that our only response is reverence and awe.
Job was a righteous man and in his own eyes he couldn’t understand why he had so many afflictions until he came to understand the Sovereignty of God. When he did he said: I heard of you, I thought I understood but now I know! There’s a big gap between our intellectual assent to God’s Word and declared Glory and knowing it at an experiential level. Think about it, God in us, the hope of Glory! The Holy Spirit resident in sinful flesh to redeem us! I don’t know about you but I find that overwhelming at times.
Further as the evening devotion reminds us, Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us! Every time we sin, He says Father forgive them they don’t know what they are doing! He only asks us to confess that sin and the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us! He is the Prophet, Priest and King of our souls. As Spurgeon declares: “If sin, death and Hell are all defeated by Him and you are represented in Him, there exists no possibility of your being destroyed. That makes me want to say Halleleujah, Praise the Lord!
