The same God who created the heavens and earth, the one who spoke the universe into existence and knows everything about you, He is on your side and wants the best for you. I love this verse because it is a great reminder that when God is for you, no one can win against you. Not the pain of your past. Not any mistake you’ve made. Not the forces of hell, your worst enemy, a bad economy, a difficult housing market or anything else on this earth.
Today, instead of dwelling on what you’re not, dwell on what He is — He is faithful, He is loving, He is with you and He is for you! And with God on your side, you are headed for victory all the days of your life!
When I was younger, i remember how badly i wanted a girlfriend. And when I did, it was amazing. In retrospect all we were was stuck at the hip. And what I thought was love was merely lust. Lust is a terrible thing. It’s like being on red kryptonite only to realise how much damage you have done to yourself and another individual. And the pain really sinks in. I remember how I couldn’t cope at school because of what happened. I even seeked medical help. Nothing seemed to work. But then you God made yourself known to me. You let me know that you were there and that you knew what pain was. But I feel the same as I did when I was 16 years old. Hurt. Bitter. Sad. Grief. I thought this girl was the one. I thought she pushed me more towards you than anyone else. I thought once again I knew what love was. But this love includes letting her go. And I don’t know if i have the strength to do that yet. I wish I didn’t hurt her. I wish I could lead her. I wish I knew what love is. Please guide me God. Please rebuild me according to Jesus’ example. Please don’t let me fall back into the false security of bitterness and hatred this world so deceptively offers. Please help me to move forward. To pursue Jesus whole heartedly. For him only and nobody else. Please take away this pain for good.
The worst thing about this heat isn’t just that it keeps your body awake; it keeps your thoughts running wild too.
Please take away her pain. Her suffering. Help her to seek comfort in Jesus, for it is only he who can provide the love no other can provide. Please keep us strong until the day that we will see your return.
In his name,
“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” - Romans 8:18
