God is For You
Sometimes we need a good dose of remembering the right things. We forget the things we should remember and remember the things we should forget.
As we begin this new week of Freedom Fighter blogs, I want to remind you today that God is for you!
If you doubt that, you should read Romans 8 and REMEMBER THAT …
He did not spare His Son, but delivered Him up for you!
Through His Son He will freely give you all things!
He will not bring a charge against you!
You are His elect!
Jesus makes intercession for you!
You are more than a conqueror through Him who loves you!
Nothing can separate you from HIS love!
The Puritan preacher, Thomas Watson said: What a privilege to have God as our God! What a happy condition when nothing can hurt you! If one loses his name, it is written in the Lamb’s book of Life. If he loses his liberty, his conscience is free. If he loses his estate, he owns the pearl of great price. If he meets a storm, he has a harbor; God is his God, and heaven is his heaven.
If God is our God, our soul is safe. It is hidden in the promises, in the wounds of Christ, and in the decrees of God. If God is our God, then all that is in God is ours. How happy is who not only inherits the gifts of God, but inherits God Himself! (Voices from the Past – Puritan Devotional Readings/Banner of Truth)
My guess is that someone today needs to hear this truth – God is for you, brother. Bask in His greatness and His goodness. You have inherited God HIMSELF.
What has caused you today to think that God is not for you? Dr. Bill Welte is President/CEO of America’s Keswick and a weekly Freedom Fighter blogger
Think About This: A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you. So carve you name on hearts, and not on marble. C H Spurgeon
This Week’s Verse to Memorize: “Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but He has not shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like Him, for we will see Him as He really is.” 1 John 3:2 (NLT)
