Powerful questions!

Scripture reading for May 25th: Romans 8, Psalm 104, Proverbs 11

Romans 8:31-34 “What then shall we say to these things? 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 with Him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God Who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the One Who died–more than that, Who was raised–Who is at the right hand of God, Who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?. . .”

Paul wanted to encourage these Roman believers about the Father’s care for them. God the Father is for us! He gave His own Son to save us even when we were lost sinners! He has declared us righteous through faith. Who can oppose us? What other need can we have that He will not meet? Jesus Christ died to free us from Satan’s accusations, sin’s power and penalty. Who can condemn us? It is Jesus Christ Who died for us Who is the Judge and now our advocate at God’s right hand! The Holy Spirit lives in us and helps us to pray. We have the Holy Trinity on our side! That’s enough to bring shouts of praise!

Psalm 104:1-2 “Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, You are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty, covering yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent.”

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I bless You with all my heart and soul and strength! You are great and abounding in love and mercy. Thank You that You are for me and the Holy Spirit is with me always helping me to pray and walk worthy of my calling. Thank You for Jesus interceding for me today. Open doors to witness of Your love in Jesus Christ and Father’s heart to see all saved and guided to You!

Proverbs 11:2-3 “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom. The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.”

God is for us!

Scripture reading for June 24th:  Romans 8, Psalm 125, Proverbs 1

Key Scriptures:  Romans 8:31-34 “What then shall we say to these things?  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 with Him graciously give us all things?  Who shall bring any charges against God’s elect?  It is God who justifies.  Who is to condemn?  Christ Jesus is the One who died–more than that, who was raised–who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.” 

Paul writes the letter to the Romans to clarify salvation by faith through grace and the security we have in the Holy Trinity.  He told the Roman believers that the Holy Spirit helped them to pray.  God was for us, demonstrating that by giving His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die on our behalf.  And Jesus was for us now, resurrected and alive and seated at God’s right hand interceding for us.  Nothing will separate us from God’s love!

Faith confession: I am convinced, fully persuaded, that God is for me, Jesus is praying for me, and the Holy Spirit is with me to help me to pray and walk with God through this life.  Nothing will separate me from God’s love!

Proverbs 1:33  “. . but whoever listens to Me will dwell secure and will be at ease, without dread of disaster.”
