“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31 (NIV)
When you know God is for you, it will change your life! You will stop thinking of God as someone who’s looking down from heaven, ready to yell at you anytime you mess up. That’s no way to live, and it’s no way to serve Jesus.
God wants you to be fruitful. He created you for a purpose and wants you to succeed. It is God, your Creator, who will measure your success and no one else. This is extremely good news
Sometimes, we can mistakenly believe that God is looking at our ministries with a clipboard in hand, ready to point out our mistakes.
But nothing could be further from the truth. Jesus said, “I did not come into the world to condemn it, but to save it.” What Jesus was saying is, “I didn’t come to scold you; I came to save you.”
Other people may criticise you, talk about you behind your back, or grade everything about you. But that’s not how God treats you.
Father, help me to always remember that you are for me, in me and with me IJN.
