If God is for us, Who can be Against us?

Overall, today was another wonderful day--started off amazingly reading your emails and messages from yesterday's blog posts. God is definitely working! He is so, so good--ALL the time!

Today I was reminded that people will let you down. Of course, I know this, but it doesn't make it any easier--especially when a person you thought would always be there for you is not. That's a tough truth to swallow no matter what.

There are certain people in our lives that we just assume will stand with us no matter what--but that isn't always true. Humans are imperfect--all of us.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
Romans 3:23 

Though it is tough to accept when a loved one lets you down, it is a good reminder that God is always there for you--He will never leave you.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Deuteronomy 31:6

I know the devil is trying to attack--trying to take my mind off of #1

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Matthew 6:33  

The devil is good at attacking us where we are weakest--and, man, was I reminded of that today! But guess what? My God is greater!

What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Romans 8:31

I actually just read this verse while typing this post and had  to change the title. Isn't it amazing how God always seems to send exactly what we need to read or hear?

I am reminded of the verses I've shared about praying for those who hurt you--they immediately ran through my head today. This reminded me of why I feel it's important to memorize scripture--you don't always have a Bible right with you. 

People will always let you down--sometimes in bigger ways than others. Knowing that doesn't necessarily make it easier when it happens, but remember that your heavenly Father will never let you down. 

 Love you all and I am loving reading all of your messages from yesterday! 


I love hearing from you :)
