Tuesday's Thought

Our God is Greater

Romans 8:31-39

“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? 33 Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies; 34 who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. 35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 Just as it is written,

“ For Your sake we are being put to death all day long;
We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

I think this is one of my favorite passages in the entire Bible.  With what courage we should live!  Most of us don’t even face near the problems listed here on a day to day basis, but in whatever struggles we do find ourselves, He is capable.  God can certainly handle our needs.  Living life through Him, should change our perspective entirely!  If you’re a Christian, He chose you before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4).  Your Creator and Savior is far more capable to handle every situation.

2 Timothy 1:7

For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.”

John 16:33

33 These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”

Hope if you’re a Christian, this gives you some encouragement today!
