God is On Our Side: Part 5
August 21, 2020
We are not alone in this world. So there is this one thing that we know, God is on our side.
Romans 8:30-32 (BSB)
30 "And those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified.
31 "What then shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, freely give us all things?
In the seventh verse of Psalms 46, in The Passion Translation, it says this: "Here he comes! The Commander! The mighty Lord of Angel Armies is on our side. The God of Jacob fights for us! Pause in his presence."
Psalms 46 8-11
8–9 "Everyone look! Come and see the breathtaking wonders of our God. For he brings both ruin and revival. He’s the one who makes conflicts end throughout the earth, breaking and burning every weapon of war.
10 "Surrender your anxiety! Be silent and stop your striving and you will see that I am God. I am the God above all the nations, and I will be exalted throughout the whole earth.
11 "Here he stands! The Commander! The mighty Lord of Angel Armies is on our side! The God of Jacob fights for us! Pause in his presence."
Even though we may feel confused and anxious at times, these verses show that we are not alone, because “God is on our side.” So, take refuge in God’s presence, have faith that He will give you strength, and continually keep advancing forward.
Thank You, Father, for always being there for us and for delivering us from all the forces of darkness. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
