Have you ever felt the pressure of standing up for yourself? The fear that people will misjudge your motives? Or the anxiety of being too far from God? Well, you do not have to fear anymore. There are several scriptures in the Bible where we are reminded that HE (GOD) IS FOR US.
God’s love for you and me is more that a quotable phrase, it is his whole purpose. HE LOVES US, HE IS FOR US.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Romans 8:16
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
So, if we know this, why are we still defaulting on the opposite thought? How can we intercept lies that bring us down? We can check on the following:
- Are your thoughts of condemnation of conviction?
- Are you planning to face the future with your own strength or with God’s favor?
- Are you defining your identity based on your pain, insecurities or shortcomings, or are listening to God’s definition of who you are based on His plans for you?
Finally, are you standing on the fact that your Heavenly Father LOVES YOU? That His definition of correction and discipline is restoration? That in HIM there is HOPE, LOVE and GRACE. Choose HIM, He is for you.
Father thank you for your love. Being reminded of your eternal love fills my heart with peace and confidence. I am not alone. You are for me. Thank you Father to walking with me every step of the way, even when I don’t see it. Amen
