How well do you know him?
That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death (Philippians 3:10)
The question of the day---How well do you know him? Many reading this might be offended and reply--He is my Savior. To that, I say Amen but what I am talking about is his different characteristics. Do you know him as your Healer, Provider, Peace, etc? We have all heard the song--What a friend we have in Jesus. Surely, he is our friend. He listens to our complaints and concerns. He rejoices with us when we are glad and he weeps with us when we are sad. It is nice to know him as a friend but we need to know him as judge.
No, I am not talking about judgement in a negative way. What I want to illustrate to you is to take your case to court. Recently, the Lord opened my eyes to knowing him as Judge. We are dealing with an outlaw spirit and, many times, we need to take our case to God. Yes, the word says that the enemy has been judged and that is true. Sometimes, speaking the word will settle the problem but when you are dealing with a circumstance that will not go away, that is the time to go to court. Let's look at the verse below....
Put Me in remembrance [remind Me of your merits]; let us plead and argue together. Set forth your case, that you may be justified (proved right).
Folks, the court is fixed in our favor. The judge is our Father and the Son is our advocate. When we take our case to court, Satan nor circumstances does not have a chance. Recently, I have been blessed to know this and if you want to dig deeper into this, check out this link below and be blessed.
