Pleading your case before God
Isaiah 43:25-26 “I, even I, am HE THAT BLOTTETH OUT THY TRANSGRESSIONS for Mine own sake, AND WILL NOT REMEMBER THY SINS; PUT ME IN REMEMBRANCE: let us PLEAD TOGETHER: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.” Hebrews 13: 5-6 “for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee; SO THAT WE MAY BOLDLY SAY, the LORD is my helper.”
God is too Holy to break His Holy Words. God is Light and there is no darkness in Him at all. 1John 1:5 “This, then is the message, which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, THAT GOD IS LIGHT, and in Him is no darkness at all.” The God of the Bible is a Loving Father, Who engages in positive constructive communications with His children.
God is never AN ACCUSER of His children. Jehovah God does not keep records of the sins of His redeemed and sanctified children. God’s Holy frame and the precious Blood of JESUS do not allow Him to harbour grudges, hate, wickedness and pettiness against His precious, Blood bought children. If God should mark our iniquities, none of us would stand.
He has already remitted our sins to the Cross. Jesus took our sins and paid the supreme price on the Cross. 1John 2:1-2 “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. AND IF ANY MAN SIN, we have AN ADVOCATE with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and HE IS THE PROPITIATION FOR OUR SINS: and not for ours only, BUT ALSO FOR THE SINS OF THE WHOLE WORLD.” The LORD blots out our transgressions and does not remember our sins. God has a computer system that deletes our sins and mistakes, once we turn to Him. He formats all our mistakes and does not keep record of such sins, because of the Bleaching Power of the BLOOD OF JESUS. The Mercy of God is great and new every morning.
What a wonderful privilege that God invites us to engage in constructive dialogue and communication with Him. If He promised you anything in His Word that has not been released in your life, Jehovah God invites you to PUT HIM IN REMEMBRANCE. God desires dialogue. He assures that our sins will not be a barrier, as He will not remember them. As we come to God through the Precious Blood of the Lamb of God, we are assured that Heaven will respond positively to us. In our prayers, we are expected to take God’s Words (His promises) back to Him.
When pleading our case, we are expected to make God’s Holy Promises, the very content of our prayers. Put the LORD in remembrance and claim the promises of God. Psalm 107:2 “Let the redeemed of the LORD SAY SO, whom He hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy.” We are to articulate all that we are in Christ. Philemon 1:6 “That THE COMMUNICATION OF THY FAITH may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing, which is in you in Christ Jesus.” What you say to God’s hearing is what He will do to you. Numbers 14: 28 “Say unto them, as truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have SPOKEN IN MINE EARS, so WILL I DO TO YOU.”
Hosea 14:2 says, “Take with you Words and TURN to the LORD. It is time to plead your case – to remind God of what He has promised in His Word, God hearkens to the VOICE OF HIS WORD. Jehovah stands by His Words to perform. The Word says, “Because He has said … then we can boldly say. Abraham, Isaac and other Patriarchs engaged God constructively and He answered their prayers. Genesis 25:21 “And Isaac entreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was entreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.”
Prayer: Father God I thank You for the privilege of coming to the Throne of Grace, not the throne of judgment. I plead Your Mercy through the Blood of JESUS. I am the redeemed of the LORD. Father, you said You would bless me above all people (Deuteronomy 7:14). I see myself as the Head and not the tail. Thou Oh LORD, You are a Shield for me, my Glory and the Lifter of my head. I am healed by the stripes of JESUS.
