Here is an interesting connection the Holy Spirit just made for me. Deuteronomy 33:27 says, “The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms…” There was no intercessor for the Lord. Isaiah 59:16 says, “…therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him; and His own righteousness, it sustained Him.”
He is our Sustainer in our trials through His righteousness. Hebrews 12:11 Amplified says, “For the time being no discipline brings joy, but seems grievous and painful; but afterwards it yields a peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it (a harvest of fruit which consists in righteousness — in conformity to God’s will in purpose, thought, and action…)”
Isaiah 32:17 says that the work of and effect of righteousness is peace, quietness, and confidence. He in our Intercessor. He undergirds and sustains us in His righteousness.
