God Is For You

One of my favorite songs is sung by Gateway Worship and it's called You are for Me.  It's a wonderful reminder of how much God truly loves us.  If we were the only person that ever lived on this earth, Christ still would have died on that cross for us.  There truly is no greater love.  I came across the following Max Lucado devotional that is along these same lines, and it's appropriately called, God is For You.  Is God Awesome or what?!!  :o)

God Is For You

He will rejoice over you.You will rest in his love; he will sing and be joyful about you. Zephaniah 3:17

God is for you.  In fact the Bible says, “God will rejoice over you!”  Turn to the sidelines; that’s God cheering your run. Look past the finish line; that’s God applauding your steps. Listen for him in the bleachers, shouting your name. Too tired to continue? He’ll carry you. Too discouraged to fight? He’s picking you up. God is for you.

In Isaiah 49:15 God asks,  “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne?” Can you mothers imagine feeding your infant and then later asking, “What was that baby’s name?” No. A mother strokes the hair, touches the face, and sings the name over and over. Can a mother forget? No way.
-Max Lucado

I hope this has blessed your heart and that you realize how high, how deep, how wide and how strong the love of Christ is for you.

God Bless!!  :o)
