This confidence we have to come into God’s Presence is not grounded in any merits we possess, but only in the person and work of Jesus Christ. And only because of this, as Believers, we are now qualified to enter into God’s Holy Presence. But when it comes to intercession for another person, we quickly forget all this and start demanding that God do what we “think” needs to be done in that person’s life. Our “understanding” of the situation for that person is far from God’s understanding, and most times our intercession just becomes a glorification of our own natural sympathies. This is when we must focus on vicarious intercession…of deliberately substituting God’s limitless understanding for our feelings based understanding and come into correct alinement with His Will not ours.
