God Is Always For Us
Who Will Stand Against Us?
The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 27:1 KJV
Fear, it is all over the world, we fear things because we are human.
Fear can set our hearts to worry, to wonder, to even run at times. But we see in the Psalms that the Lord is our strength whom shall we fear?
As we go on through our days we can keep the Lord always before us, because He lights our path. He keeps the lights burning so we do not have this fear. As I go on through daily living it is not fear of this world that bothers me NO, because God goes before us. It's fearing for others and what they are doing in this life time with the Lord Jesus Christ. Family members that do not know Him, friends that think they have it all together but they don't know their need for Jesus, and depend on the world to get them through..When it all comes right down to it, this world will not be there for them.
When we we're going through a really tough crisis in the financial area all our friends seemed to have gotten lost.. But we let God go before us and He is the one that got us to the road we needed to be on, its a long road but the rewards are great. Some do not want to wait for that, but God says His timing is not our timing and when He starts moving watch out because it all comes at once, or it could come gently or like a wind that we just let brush by and didn't even see it at that second. I look at my grandsons, how they have blessed my life and how I have this chance and have taken it, to introduce them to Jesus at a young age, because when I was growing up my children they new of Jesus but didn't know Him. Two of my children need to know our Lord, and with my prayers I'm sure Jesus will not let them run to far.
In Romans 8 it speaks of who can separate us from the love of Christ?
Then further down it says "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Because as the Psalms says I have set the Lord always before me,
Yes, we can go through the pain, we can go through the sorrow, but we will not be moved.
I have set the Lord always before me;
because He is at my right hand,
I shall not be moved.
Psalm 16:8 KJV
