Job 16:19 (NIV) ~ Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high.

Oh, to have a powerful Advocate in your corner fighting on your behalf; an Advocate who will go in and bat for you and will be your strong Defender and the most powerful Counselor, who will stand by your side to take up your case. The Counselor will guide you in all truth and speak His word to you. So take heart God will be your mighty deliverer; He will show Himself strong on your behalf.

The Bible says in 1 John 2:1 (KJV), “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.” Jesus pleads our case before the Father and intercedes on our behalf. He is our great Advocate and our strong Defender. When we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us from all our sins before the Judge of all the ages, so we will receive a pardon for our past and peace for our present.

In every area of life, whatever way you turn, you will always need a good Defender who will fight for you, a good Advocate who will stand up for you. There is none better the LORD, no Counselor better then the Holy Spirit. When you need God to show Himself strong on your behalf, plead your case before Him, and let Jesus be your Advocate on high.

My friend, whatever situation you may find yourself in, or whatever shortcoming may befall you, then learn from Job in our text for today in Job 16:19 (NIV), “Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high.” Take your case before your great Advocate, your strong Defender, and let Him fight for you to deliver you and show Himself strong on your behalf.

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
