God Is For Us 5

God Is For Us 5

Romans 8: 31-32

“If God is for us, who can be against us?  He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”

 

Thought for Today

Those who proclaim that God wants everyone to be healthy and wealthy never stop to consider that this was not the path that God chose for His Son. Jesus walked a hard road for us, knowing that the pain and struggle were worth the outcome. In the same way, the path we are called to walk is not always easy, but we can move forward knowing that the outcome will be worth it. God has promised to graciously give us everything we need to walk our path faithfully, just like He did for His Son, Jesus. So move forward with confidence today, knowing that God will provide all that you need to walk your path faithfully.

 

Prayer

Loving Father, I praise You that You chose the hard road for Jesus because you thought I was worth it. Grant me the strength and confidence to walk the path before me to Your glory, knowing each day that You will give me exactly what I need. Amen.
