And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:28-31)
Today's Morsel: As children of God, we should never feel lonely, dejected, or walk around with low-self-esteem. As Elijah asked the Lord to open his servants eyes, his servant noticed a host of heaven surrounding them. He immediately realized that there were more for them than the enemies they were facing. God doesn't forget His promises to His children. He's not going to leave you, nor will He forsake you. Often times, you may feel that God has abandoned you, but He hasn't. When we feel abandoned, it's because we aren't focusing on Jesus, but on our surroundings and circumstances. Six minutes of each hour should be focused on Christ. A prayer for someone. A song of praise. Or just some thanksgiving, that's tithing your time. Paul said that all things work together for the good, to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. What's God's purpose for your life? Do you ever stop and analyze what the outcome of your situation is going to look like and what it will be when you come out of it? I'm told that honey never spoils or goes bad. Honey is made from nectar. The process bees use to make honey is gross. But the end product is wonderful and good for you. Your situation may be full of mess, but see the end results. So I conclude that no matter what my situation and circumstances are, if God be for me, then everyone else might as well be for me , too. Because there isn't anything or anyone that can stop what God desires to do in our lives.
Sing: If God be for us, who can be against us? If God be for us, who can be against us? If God be for us, who can be against us? Just have faith in the power of His word!
