No arbiter between us

For he is not a man, as I am, that I might answer him,
        that we should come to trial together.
    There is no arbiter between us,
        who might lay his hand on us both.
    Let him take his rod away from me,
        and let not dread of him terrify me.
    Then I would speak without fear of him,
        for I am not so in myself.
Job 9:32-35 ESV

Job needs a mediator, someone to arbitrate his case before God. He doesn’t realize that he already has an intercessor, Jesus Christ.

How often in my life I forget that I, too, have an intercessor, an arbiter that argues my case before a holy God. Jesus stands ready to plead for me.
