Heavenly Conference Calls

Working in my pajamas—it’s one of the perks of working from home. Though I work from home every day, my husband works at home on Fridays only. Though he chooses not to stay in his pajamas, a normal work-at-home Friday includes conference calls. Conference calls allow a business to conduct a meeting, but everyone can call from home and can stay in their PJ’s. No ties needed. We’ve even had a family conference call with our college boys.

Conference call discussions may center on a specific issue that needs work, preparation, or perhaps a little extra attention. Scripture tells us that God holds heavenly conference calls—about you. Check out these verses from Romans 8 (NIV):

“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.”      Romans 8:26, 27

“…Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.”     Romans 8:34

To intercede means to talk to someone on behalf of another. For instance, if one of your friends gets mad at a different friend, you might help them work it out or if you have a friend that needs something, you might talk to your parents about helping them. You intercede for them.

The Bible verses above tell us that both Jesus and the Holy Spirit are interceding for you in their conversations with the Father. They have a spiritual conference call and you are the topic of the moment.

Stop and think about God thinking about you. Does it blow your mind a little? God cares about you and you are always on His mind. Tell Him thanks today.
