The Intercessory Work of Christ – Matthew 14

“And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.” John 6:17
“ And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.” Matt 14:25

It had been a long day of ministry. Having fed the multitude, the Lord sent them away while making His disciples get into a boat as He went up on the mountain to pray. But while the disciple’s were at sea, a storm arose greatly hindering their progress. Four adverse conditions prevailed: they were tossed by the waves, the wind was contrary, they were far from land and it was dark—and He had not yet come to them. But when all seemed hopeless, deep in the night He did appear, offering words of assurance. (John 6:20) Adverse conditions may likewise be prevailing in our experience, hindering our spiritual progress. But rest assured dear friend, the same Lord, who you may not see now, sees you and is also praying for you. He will come to you in time and make His presence known.

Ev’ry day, He comes to me with new assurance, More and more I understand His words of love;
But I’ll never know just why He came to save me, Till some day I see His blessed face above.” – Weigle
