A Great Way to Start the Day!
“If my God is for me then who can be against me?” Romans 8:31
What a powerful verse! The Bible is filled with short memory verses that we can recall whenever we feel that need for an extra dose of encouragement. This is definitely one of those verses.
What would our life look like if we believed this with all our heart?
In the face of adversity - we shout “My God is for me!”
When we feel like all four walls are closing in and we just want to give up -
“Who can be against me?”
When we are attacked for our Christian beliefs or conservative values, we remember that the battle is already won!
When the devil tries to fill our mind with doubt and lies or we feel as though nothing in this world is going right. We fall on our knees and boldly declare,
"If my God is for me then who DARE be against me?"
Not in a proud or boastful manner, but in a reassured confidence that is rooted in the authority of
You've heard it said that there is power in numbers.
What an awesome God we serve that he is the only one we truly need.
He alone is more powerful than all the militaries this world has to offer combined.
Not a single leaf will fall from a tree without his permission.
And yet, the God of the beginning and the end cares for you and me.
When we are weak, we are made strong through him.
I stand in awe, amazed at his magnificent glory!
Our Lord Jesus Christ reigns victorious!
Dear Heavenly Father,
We pray that your words are always on our lips and that your will is forever in our hearts. We ask that when we feel inadequate, uncertain, lost or confused that you would lead us to your word for direction. When we endure times of difficulty or injustice we can be confident that you are for us and therefore no one can be against us. It doesn’t matter what comes our way, we are protected by the almighty creator of the universe.
May we rest comfortably knowing these truths.
Thank you Jesus!
