2 Corinthians 7:10-11 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.

I have proved myself in these matters. It is with godly sorrow that I cannot clear another. That gift belongs to Christ and Christ alone. Try as I might I cannot stand in for you. Only Christ is our propitiation. I have a heart to save, but only Christ is our Savior.

I have clarity only in what I cannot do. I have done everything I can in these matters and the results are left up to God. The hard part for love is to trust God for the results when it looks like love has failed.

If my love is godly love, it has not failed. I know that in my heart but my eyes fail me because I do not see what I want. The secret to intercession is not to care for the result for it is God’s will be done. It is the intercessors task to stand in place of suffering.

This I do.

The result is not according to my will. I can only trust God.
