No matter what you’re going to face this next week, you’re not going to face it alone. God is with you, He is in you, and He is for you. This is coming from the writings of Paul and as you know he did not have any easy journey. To name a few things: he was in prison falsely accused, shipwrecked and survived, bit by a poisonous snake and survived, put in jail and led the jailor and family to Christ. He says he is confident that God is capable of finishing all that He started in him. We are also partakers of that promise of God. Wow! Not from easy street but a tough Paul proclaims God’s capacity is greater to handle anything that comes our way, and in the midst of that journey you can still praise and follow our Lord in obedience. You see life is a progression of events that create our story and we are constantly growing with Gods help!
“God is working in you.” The word “working” in Greek is the word energos, from which we get the word “energy.” God is the energy driver in your life. You’re not just going on willpower. You’re not just going on your own power. God says he will give you the power you need, no matter what you’re facing.
Not only is God with you and in you; God is also for you. Romans 8:31 says, “If God is for us, no one can defeat us” (NCV).
Do you ever feel the smile of God in your life? If you don’t, you don’t really know God. Some people think God is like the angry parent who’s mad at them all the time. No. God is for you!
Isn’t that great news? If God is with you, and God is in you, and God is for you, then we have to ask why we give up?
