Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 09/09/18

This week’s scripture is from Romans:

“If God be for us, who can be against us?”     (Romans 8:31b)

Many things in life may rise against us: troubles, hardship, illness. Work can become overwhelming, and deadlines unrelenting. Health can take a sudden turn; illness and injury can take a toll. Relationships can break down. For surely as we live these giants will challenge us. Yet let us remember what the scriptures teach us about when Goliaths rise up in our life. Though the outlook may seem dark and despair may try to take hold of us, we need to remember to whom we belong. We need to remember that we are a child of God, and He is for us and not against us, for God’s love is great and God’s love is powerful. Nothing in this life or this world can stop His love for us or stop His love from fulfilling its purpose in our life. Let us face our giants with Christ at our side for surely He fights for us and in Him we have the victory. For God gave His one and only son that we might never be separated from Him or the love of Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the love of the Lord be your strengthen this day and every day.
