Do you need a mediator? Someone to come between you and someone else or a problem and justify, explain or simply help see you through.
God doesn't need a mediator, Paul tells us so. When speaking to the Galatians and explaining the gravity of God's promises (especially the one about a redeemer and no more law... only grace and faith... weird, I know!) he tells them specifically:
Now a mediator involves more than one party, but God is one.
- Galatians 3:20
I read that and I asked myself, "Why did Paul say something so contradictory?" As I dug I learned that his point was not to be contradictory but, rather, to be profound and poignant. God doesn't need a mediator!! What He says goes. No debate. No lee-way. With God... it just is. So when He makes a promise, His Word stands.
Does our word stand? Do we find ourselves making excuses or stepping back or unsure of what to speak up for? I know I do at times. Reading Galatians 3:20 (and all that preceded it) reassured me this week that God has my back!
Actually... that is wrong... He has my heart and my whole being too. With His Spirit inside me, who can stand against me? Do I really need a mediator to stand on and up for Truth? To defend my faith, my call, my existence in Christ and all the principles that stem there-of?
I have the ONE Mediator that settles it all and in Him (not man) I will put my trust and hope... even if it seems like walls might tremble and fall!
May the Lord be your ROCK, your voice peace to resistance both within... and without.
