God Is for Us

Through our many trials and tribulations, God is there, and He will rescue us. He will not abandon His people. He will cover us with His hand and lead us to safety. His protection will be on those who love Him.

“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.”

(Romans 8:31-33)

As these days turn dark and our vision diminishes, let us remember the Lord, for He is good. He will not let us suffer more than we can bear. This life is but a vapor and our true reward is in the salvation the Lord promised through His son Christ Jesus.

Let us be glad and cheerful knowing God has a place prepared for us. Our comfort is in His Word. His Word is a light unto our feet, a provision for our mind and a treasure for our heart. He clothes us in security and provides us with what we need. He will give us the strength to overcome our fears.

We will count on the Lord’s wisdom as a standard against plague. His mercy will not fail us. His power will penetrate the very marrow of our being, providing us the encouragement we so truly seek. In all things, fear not, for God is for us.

  1. AMEN!

    Our Heavenly Father’s promises will never be broken…its the one thing we can always count on.

    Have a Blessed Thanksgiving Jack🙏


  2. Jack, thank you. Truly God works through you and reaches the poor in spirit. I’ve had many times of trials and tribulations and missed death by seconds or inches. I have had to keep going after I lost everything and everyone including my children. By the grace of God, life has turned from a curse to a blessing. Sometimes I wonder why, what have I done to deserve my survival, but there can be only one answer, and that’s God. When I feel that I am unlovable, dirty, a waste, He is feeling what I feel, he knows my sickness and my grief, and He has never abandoned me. Glory be to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; they are forever, while I am small and mortal. I thank God for miracles, as I’ve seen and benefited from them. Jack, I thank God for you, a light I see on my darkest days, and Thanksgiving is the perfect time to say thank you. You’ll never know the encouragement and hope you have given me. May God continue to bless you, your family, friends and your church. In a world of hypocrisy, you are honest and sincere. Thanks for everything, Jack.

    1. God will never leave you nor forsake you. He will always be there for you, in your darkest moments and in the height of your joy. God bless you and may God’s peace be will you always, Michael.
