Jesus is the sinless and perfect high priest.  When he speaks, all of heaven listens! Hebrews 7:25 promises, “Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.” Unshakable hope is the firstborn offspring of this promise.  We’d prefer to have every question answered, but Jesus has, instead, told us this much:  “I will pray for you through the storm.”

Are those prayers answered?  Of course.  You might disagree.  If Jesus was praying, why did the storm even happen at all?  Well, that storm-free life will be inaugurated in the eternal kingdom.  Between now and then, since this is a fallen world and since the devil still stirs doubt and fear, we can count on storms.  But we can also count on the presence and prayers of Christ in the midst of them!
