God Takes Our Case

English Audio Version

Public Defender No. 1.

What does that mean to us? What’s a public defender, anyway?

  • First, a public defender is a lawyer, fully qualified and prepared to use the law to our advantage. The court respects the authority of a public defender.
  • Second, a public defender doesn’t cost us anything. The court recognizes that we don’t have the means or ability to defend ourselves. We need the best help possible, hence, our public defender.

Here’s where this applies to us. The world happens to us whether we like it or not. Our health fails, the economy stumbles, even our relationships begin to fray no matter how hard we try to keep everything on an even keel.

We don’t know how to fight back as our life slips out of control.

That’s when God steps in, briefcase in hand, and says, “I’m here, now. Your worries are over. I’ll take your case.”

Read in Isaiah 62:8:

“The Lord has sworn by his right hand and by his mighty arm: ‘I will not again give your grain to be food for your enemies, and foreigners shall not drink your wine for which you have labored.’ ”

God has taken our case as our authority in the court of life.

  • Your health? Granted, by the stripes of Christ.
  • Your finances? Approved, funded by the God of Creation.
  • Your relationships? Rock solid and founded on the foundation of Jesus.

Our part is to turn our case over to God, trust him, and do what he suggests. He’s the expert, not us, and we want the highest authority on the job.

Jesus can reinstate our life when we turn it over to him.

Let’s circle back to Jesus. It’s the natural thing to do.
