Job 9:32-33 - “For He is not a man, as I am, that I may answer Him, and that we should got to court together. Nor is there any mediator between us, who may lay his hand on us both.”
Job really had it rough, he lost his family, he lost all of his wealth, he lost his health, and when he was at the very depths of his sorry and pain he was crying out about the wish that he had a direct line to God. He wanted someone as a go between because he felt like God was unreachable.
God heard the cry, He always hears the cries of the broken, there is not one story in the Bible that He doesn’t respond to with the same love and care of a Father. Yes he let Job be tested, but we are often tested in life to show endurance and patience. It doesn’t mean that God has left us or he doesn’t love us.
When Job spoke those words “there is no mediator” God thought of one and he sent his son to die on a cross in an act of love that proved he cared about us. He gave us the ultimate mediator. Now we have a person to stand between us when the accuser goes before the Father to tell him we are guilty of something. He doesn’t see us or anything we might have done, he sees the blood that Jesus shed, and he sees a “Not guilty” verdict.
When you need Him, you just have to cry out. Its that simple.
Do you need a mediator today, call on the only one who can get you the verdict you need.
