GOD IS FOR US
God's Prayer Power - Session 6
God is truly for us and wants us to know as his children we have his promises. He chose us to be His and since we accepted His son, Jesus Christ as our Savior, we belong to God. He is our Father. Nothing can separate us from God. We have been adopted into His family. In Romans 8 Paul is encouraging believers and wants us to understand God is working to complete a plan that He is working in us. Ephesians 1:4 says, "According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love." Each day take heart to know that God Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, is for us, and is our Father.
Our verse today is Romans 8:31
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
How do we know God is for us?
Because God sent His only Son to take our place on the cross and die for us, so He could redeem us from the sin that separated us from Him. Now nothing separates us from God. We are born again, children of God because we have accepted Christ as our Savior and received Him into our hearts.
What three words or phrases reach out to you? For me they are:
God - Almighty
For Us - committed to us.
Against Us - The enemy, Satan.
God is everything. He is Almighty God, maker of heaven and earth. . . Psalm 121:2. The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. . . Psalm 121: 5. And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the Lord am holy . . .Leviticus 20:26
All things to us who are His.Take time to reflect as you read your Bible who God is. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you.
One of the most comforting and words of assurance I know, is that God is for us. To think we His children would have to walk and live on earth without Him is unthinkable to me as I am sure it is to you too. Knowing He will be with us, provide for us, protect us, teach us, comfort us and walk beside us is glorious.
What power is stronger than God? In Romans 8:38-39 His word says, "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Father, help us not to be arrogant, haughty or proud.
Cleanse us of our selfishness.
Cleanse us of our self-pity.
Cleanse us of our self-centeredness.
Create in us a clean heart.
Your word says You are for us.
Help us build a relationship with You.
This week, let us spend time reading Romans 8 and learning of all the ways God is with us.
We are His children. Let us come to know our Father in Heaven better.
God bless each and everyone of you this week!
