April 25 God Is for You

scripture reading: Romans 8:31–39
key verse: Exodus 14:14

The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.

Not only is God’s Spirit in you, but also God is for you. There are amazing power and freedom in knowing that almighty God is now on your side.

Have you blown your marriage due to immorality? If you are a believer, God is still for you.

Have you backed off from your commitment to God? Have you ignored His counsel, refused His direction? As staggering as it seems, God is still for you.

Here’s why. When Christ died, God’s judgment was fully executed on His Son. His wrath against sin was vented. God’s love is steadfast for those who receive the gift of eternal life by faith in Christ Jesus. You may sin and rebel, but His love for you does not change.

Yes, He will discipline you; yes, He will chastise you if necessary. But all correction is filtered through His loyal, blessed love.

God is for you, not against you. Because of the Cross, you can abide in His presence permanently and experience His love by personal faith in Jesus Christ. Paul declared that nothing can “separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom. 8:39).

Thank You, Father, that even when my commitment to You is feeble, You are still for me. Thank You that nothing can separate me from Your love.[1]
