What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Romans 8:31-32
You can physically or mentally make two columns. In the first column, write down every trial, adverse event, problem people, discouraging moments, and frustrating details. In the other column, write the words God is For Me. You should already be encouraged just knowing that God is more significant than all of life’s difficulties.
It’s not the absence of difficulties that will make life better; it’s the presence of our Savior. He is the wind in your wings when no wind is blowing. He is the calm that comes at the height of your storm. He is the firm foundation when your life is crumbling and shaking. He is the voice to follow when the world is shouting for your attention. He is the peace that runs deeper than the depth of your despair. He is the joy that overflows from the pit of your mourning. He holds your life together when your world is falling apart. He shines on the just and the unjust, validating his impartiality. When people fail you, he brings constant comfort. He has a plan for your life that is good, right, and hopeful. Others may come and go, but He will never leave nor forsake you.
God is faithful to his children. His faithfulness allowed for his own Son to die in our place. He will accomplish all He desires to bring forth in and throughout your life. You are worthy. You are the apple of His eye. Don’t listen to the accusations of the enemy. God is for you; he is not against you. Because God was with King David, he said, “I can run through a troop and jump over a wall.” He knew that God was for him.
Father, you are a faithful God. We can always count on your character to be full of integrity and trustworthiness. Thank you God, for loving us. Thank you for caring about our lives. Thank you when you consider all creation, You say that our lives matter more. Help us to preach boldly and walk humbly. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Blessings, Love y’all
Camilla, Nicolas and I had a good laugh and an even better reminder with this message. Thank you so much for what you do!
