"So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn't hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn't gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God's chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ's love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture." Romans 8:31-36 (The Message)
Don't ever forget who our God is. He is the one who valued us so much that he sent his only son to die that we might be redeemed! He has amazing things in store for those who trust him. Don't be tempted to rush ahead of God. Don't be tempted to lower the standard. Remember Paul's words above. God didn't purchase your soul, restore you to himself, and transform your life just so he could leave you high and dry. He is as big as he says he is! To him be the glory!
