My Great Assurance

(S) Scripture
      Job 9:33-35 (NIV)
33  If only there were someone to arbitrate between us, to lay his hand upon us both,
34  someone to remove God's rod from me, so that his terror would frighten me no more.
35  Then I would speak up without fear of him, but as it now stands with me, I cannot.

(O) Observation
Job desperately wanted an arbitrator between him and God. He knew he could not stand on his own but needed an advocate.

(A) Application
I also desperately need an arbitrator. The Good News is that I have one in God’s Son, Jesus. Jesus is the one that takes God’s wrath away from me. He is the one who took God punishment for my sin on himself. My faith in Jesus’ provision for me assures me of my place with God. I am no longer under God’s wrath but am now His child. I am so fortunate to have Jesus as my Savior, Advocate and Arbitrator

(P) Prayer

Thank you for loving me enough to send your Son to die in my place and to take your wrath from me. Let me forever live with a grateful heart for what you have done for me through your Son. Amen
