God Is For You

As a believer in Jesus Christ, you can be sure that God is for you. Read these affirming words from the Bible. "If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not freely give us all things?" (Romans 8:32). Look at the cross of Jesus. There you find proof certain that God is for you

You bring glory to God, not by condemning yourself, but by receiving God's mercy and love in Jesus Christ. If God is for you, why should you be against yourself? Admit when you have done wrong. Receive God's mercy. Agree with God's acceptance of you in Christ.

It will never change your life to continue putting yourself down. Believe that God is for you. His Word declares it. The cross proves it. Receive the grace of God in Christ. God's unmerited favor is upon you in Christ alone. Speak these words, "But by the grace of God, I am what I am" (1 Corinthians 15:10).

Making bad choices is not the end of the story. The end should always be accepting God's forgiveness, and making one more choice, the right one. Choose to receive God's mercy and love, as you move forward with your life. Believe God is for you.
