Today God is on Our Side
This I know…God is for me Psalms 56:9
When you know that God is for you, you can face anything. That doesn’t mean life will be easy. Paul said to Timothy in 2 Tim. 2:3, “endure hardness, as a good soldier.” The new birth brings new battle fields and a new enemy to conquer. The war against you is on three fronts, and by yourself, you’re not equal to the enemy your facing.
First, the worlds pressures and influences seek to mold you everyday. Next, the flesh tries to get you to live by what feels good, and not the word. Finally, the devil strategy is to get you off track and make you so weak you’re not a threat to his kingdom, and no benefit to God.
However the good news is you are not alone. The God who opened the Red Sea and shut the lions mouths is your God. Sure, the Israelite’s had to face the Red Sea, there was no other way. Daniel probably wouldn’t have chosen to spend a night in a lion’s den if he had another choice. In as much, God brought them through it victoriously. Therefore since He says “I am the Lord, I change not,” He’s going to do it for you too! This I know God is for me!
