The Bible depicts in several places, Jesus sitting at the right hand of God, (depicts a place of glory and honor) but in Acts 7, when Stephen was being stoned by the Jews for preaching Christ, he saw Him standing at the right hand of God (still a place of glory and honor). He was interested in, and grieved Himself, with what was happening on earth.
But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. Acts 7: 55-56
I believe that when faithful Christians are grieving and things are going badly that Jesus is standing for us also. I think there are times in our lives where He is not ‘sitting’, but is interested enough in us and our trials that He is ‘standing’. He truly does care!
