Today’s Encouragement is Romans 8:31 NLT “What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?”
God is for us –
In spite of this truth, it often seems to us that ‘everyone is against me’, ‘nobody cares’, and ‘I’m all on my own.’
In today’s social media world, we too often see folks living in this ‘poor-pitiful-me’ state of mind. Expressing their loneliness and pain to the digital world… My friends, it is true that the world often turns on us, against us and we are often isolated, even abandoned, by those who live by the standards of this world.
We have a friend, closer than a brother, stronger than any other, and more perfectly loving than any person could ever be to us!
Our God is FOR us! This whole world might be against us, the world certainly was against Jesus Himself! But God was FOR Him just as God is FOR you and me!
Remember Jesus’ words- John 16:33 NLT “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth, you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
The world may be or seem to be against you… but my friend, God is FOR you!
