For Us

Who is For You in the Game of Life

04/03/2019

“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?  It’s a good question. Who is for you? Are you blessed to have a friend or family member who is there for you? But, what if you don’t, and you daily fight the loneliness and sadness of getting through each day on your own? God has an important message for us in Romans 8:31. “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…” GOD is FOR YOU. Not only is He not against us, the fact that He’s FOR US is amazing! Say it out loud. “God is for me. He is for me.” God is in the game of our life…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. How much is He for us? A tiny bit? A big amount? The Father and Son are so for us they rescued our souls from Satan’s dominion by Jesus switching places with us on the cross. The next time we’re tempted to feel sorry for ourselves or Satan whispers, “you’re doing life all alone,” answer back loud and clear, “Wrong! God is with me and FOR ME.” Then, in genuine gratitude, thank the Heavenly Father and Son.

Heavenly Father, Precious Savior, thank You for being FOR US. We praise You, thank You, and pray our lives reflect our gratitude.

“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…”

Romans 8:31

“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.
