Dear Friends of "Dial Daily Bread,"
Do you ever ask the question, What is Jesus Christ doing now? With instant electronic news, millions of people know almost immediately what is happening around the world. Can we be as well informed about what Jesus is doing? Is He looking after our interests? And can we know this for sure?
Hebrews 7:25 says, "He ever lives to make intercession for them." Is Jesus trying to change the Father's mind toward us? No, because the Father loves us as much as He does. Those who come to God through Him enjoy His interceding to protect them from the cruel attacks of Satan, not only physical violence but also his evil spirits of despair and condemnation.
Psalm 121:4 tells us that He "neither slumbers nor sleeps." Heaven's "helpline" is open 24 hours a day.
The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Jesus, will respond to your prayer for help. God even answers the prayers of children, and He sometimes will answer your selfish prayers in order to encourage you in any way possible. But He so much wants to teach you to grow up to appreciate what Jesus is doing as our great High Priest--preparing a people to be ready for His second coming in power and great glory!
The total resources of Heaven, of its vast government, are directed toward instructing and training every human soul who will respond, to get ready. You can read it in 2 Chronicles 16:9: "The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him."
What's important is this. Instead of you trying to get in contact with Him, He is trying to find a way to get in contact with you! Does your heart respond to Him; is your heart "loyal to Him"? Now that's a serious question!
