#5113 – God is for us

Good morning cherished and valuable children of God.

John 14:2 NIV “My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?”

One of the eternal truths of God is that He is for us; He is for you.

In this world, many people can be against us. We can be against ourselves. Love is replaced with harshness, anger, hurt and bitterness. Rejection, rebellion and hatred are often seen and experienced.

Unfortunately, we can sometimes project this onto God. Our view of God is often shaped through the lens of our natural experiences. Whenever we do this, we land in the wrong place.

Jesus is preparing an eternal home for you with His Father. Don’t miss the words ‘for you’.

I’m reminded of this empowering verse:

Jeremiah 29:11 NIV “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

God is for us and His plan is to give us a future. In fact, this verse more literally reads, ‘plans to give you a hope-filled future’. That’s nice. That’s wonderful.

In all you do today – including if things are going great or if every step is filled with pain – may you know that God is for you. His thoughts about you are precious and He loves you with pure love. He lives in you and He is preparing an eternal home for you.

God is for you.
