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.”

More than conquerors!

Scripture reading for July 24th: Romans 8:24-39

Winning teams are composed of outstanding individual players who work well together.  Paul describes our winning team that will enable us to be more than conquerors!  We know about this team by faith in what God has told us!  As we read about this team, let new faith arise in God’s wonderful care for you.

We have been adopted into God’s family and now are waiting in hope for the redemption of our bodies.  All of creation is awaiting this glorious change.  God has given us the Spirit to help us through this waiting time and the sufferings that we go through here on earth.  “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness.  We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.  And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.” (Romans 8:26-27)  The Holy Spirit is on our winning team!  He is helping us through prayer to see all things work for our good and God’s purposes!

Also on our winning team is God the Father.  “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?” (Romans 8:31-32)  God is on our side, providing for all our needs.  Our greatest need was forgiveness of sins and God supplied this at the cost of His own Son!  We can trust Him to provide whatever we need and give us an eternal inheritance that He has promised as well!

We have not only the Father and Spirit on our winning team, but also the Son of God!  Jesus Christ has ascended to heaven and is at the Father’s right hand.  There He is praying for us and showering us with love!  What an amazing team we are a part of!  The Holy Trinity insures that we are more than conquerors in any battle we will face!  There is no trouble, persecution, sickness or demon from hell who can separate us from our winning team!  That should give us hope and make us shout!
