Romans 8:28 – And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been
called according to his purpose.
Do you have peeps?
No not the marshmallow treats you get around Easter. Do you have people? Do you have someone in your life who’s got your back. Who only wants good for you? I am blessed to have been given people at every stage of my life, everywhere I’ve lived who I consider my people. The people I could trust to pick me up when I’m down, encourage me when I need to push a little harder, and especially those who would laugh with me.
You have someone on your side
Sometimes it doesn’t feel like we have people on our side. Sometimes it feels as if no one cares at all. We keep hoping someone is going to care about us as much as we care about them, or that we want anyone to care about us at all. Fortunately, we do have someone like that, we have God on our side. He wants good things for us. Because we have a loving God, we can be assured that our future is secure. That God is ever-moving us closer to Him, and our future is with Him in heaven. We’re still moving towards good things.
If God is for us, who can be against us?
In the same chapter of Romans, verses 32-39, we read, “He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
Because of God’s love, as shown to us in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for us, we are more than conquerors. We can overcome the trials and tribulations of this world, but only because of our Lord, and that nothing will be able to separate us from the Love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. It is the Love of God in Christ that gives us hope for a future. A future with our Lord and Savior.
