“What then shall we say to these things? If God is FOR US, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over FOR US ALL…”
“Which team are you for?” “Which candidate are you for?” We often talk about who we’re for. But have you ever thought about who is for you?
Say it out loud. “God is for me; not against me. He is for me.” As a matter of fact, God is not standing on the sidelines, cheering us on. He’s in the game…saving our souls. Rescuing us. Making a place for us in heaven. Righting our wrongs. Extending grace. Wiping away our tears. Interceding for us. Guarding us.
God is for us. How much is He for us? A tiny bit? A big amount? The Father and Son are so for us that they devised a plan to rescue our souls from Satan’s dominion. How? By Jesus switching places with us on the cross.
The next time we’re tempted to feel sorry for ourselves or Satan whispers, “God’s not answering your prayers,” answer back loud and clear, “God is for me so much that He took the cross for me. My God is FOR ME.” Then, in humbleness, thank the Heavenly Father and Son for being for you.
Heavenly Father, Precious Savior, that You are FOR US is beyond our understanding. We praise You, thank You, and pray our lives reflect our gratitude.
