God is for me. . . Romans 8:31b
Pat stood in my kitchen nook. Her passion for God oozed. She said, “Jesus is for you and loves you so much, Darlene. He is for you.” I listened.
For years Pat and I had studied the Word together. We even taught across the hall from one another at a Christian school. She knew my life had been challenging the last few years.
On this day my heart was very heavy. It had been jolted that week. I had buried my youngest brother the day before. And less than three years before this, my father had died the same way as my brother. I wondered which family member was next on His game board of death.
Really, God is for me?
But the pain from my brother Allan’s death had lanced my heart open. And the deep internal pain was screaming to come from the dark into the light.
The truth wanted to voice. Then maybe, just maybe, my internal pain would lessen, then be healed. In time, I might be able to go forward in life.
Pat was not privy that day to the deep festering wound that was causing me most of the pain. I still feared that no one would believe me. And I feared the cost to bring the truth into the light. So I kept it under wraps, once again.
But Pat’s Jesus passion jumped over onto me that day catching me in the nick of time. I heeded and sowed God is for me into the chambers of my heart.
Receive this truth, God is for you.
Do you believe God is against you? What caused you to believe that?
Will you uproot that lie and replace it with the Truth, God is for me?
Let me hear what you do with this truth?
