Have a Wonderful and Blessed Thursday!!! If God Is Our Father Who Can Hurt Us!!!
Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
Romans 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
2Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.
Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Isaiah 41:11 Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.
Psalm 34:18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
Psalm 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
Psalm 34:20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
Psalm 34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
Psalm 34:22 The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
When we start to worry, panic we need to STOP. Why should we stop, for two huge reasons:
*Reason One: WORRY is a sin, we are doubting God, we are telling our Lord, and Father he can’t do it. The creator who spoke all into existence, parted the red sea, came here died on the cross, rose again can’t take care of our problem.
*Reason Two: If our Father, Our Savior be for us, if we are his child who can be against us, who will hurt us? For us parents who are we going to allow to come into our home and stand there and hurt our children? The Lord has to give permission to the enemy in order to let him physically hurt us. In Job we see Satan had to get permission to mess with Job so severely. Satan wanted to prove Job not a good servant and would turn his back on the Lord.
Remember the Lord sees the whole picture, he has a plan for each of us. He is not fly by night as most of us. Like I have said before with his word he didn’t put things in his word for fillers, he means all he has in his word. Well the same with us, he didn’t put us here just to watch us play. He takes all he says very seriously, and all he has planned very seriously. When we stand before him we will not be making excuses and blaming others.
So next time when we start to get a bit panicky, start to wringing the hands, sweating, ask ourselves WHO CAN BE AGAINST US. Honestly it is the people out in the world that need to be concerned, our Father is King of kings, Lord of lords, and the MIGHTY God!!!
A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing;
Our helper He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing:
For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and power are great, and, armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.
Did we in our own strength confide, our striving would be losing;
Were not the right Man on our side, the Man of God’s own choosing:
Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He;
Lord Sabaoth, His Name, from age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.
And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us:
The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.
That word above all earthly powers, no thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours through Him Who with us sideth:
Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also;
The body they may kill: God’s truth abideth still,
His kingdom is forever.
Love and Prayers
