If God Is For Us... Apr 16 2012


"What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?" - Romans 8:31

I have always been inspired by people who faced great challenges and setbacks in their lives, who fought hard and achieved amazing comebacks. There is a long list of people who have done this, both real and fiction, secular, as well as biblical, and from centuries in the past, as well as recent heroes.

I have tremendous news for you. These comebacks are not just for people you read about in the history books or the latest edition of Newsweek. This very day, God is in the business of turning your setbacks into comebacks! Note what Paul wrote to the Christians being persecuted: "… we are being put to death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us." Realize that God doesn’t say, "Well, I’ll arrange it where you can just squeak by!" Neither does He say, "I’ll arrange it where you can just barely endure."

No! He doesn't say any of that. What He DOES say is: “In ALL these things, we overwhelmingly conquer!” We don’t just conquer, we overwhelmingly conquer, through the power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And it is this amazing power – the power of the Creator of the universe – that will help you pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and turn your setback into an overwhelming victory. May that victory be triumphed for the glory of God!

To God be the glory, His love for us is so amazing, without Him on our side where will we be? God promise us life eternal if we believe on His Son, and walk according to His will for us. Stay encourage believers.

Can you give a good scripture that says-in the old testament the Sabbath was always on Friday at dusk to SATURDAY AT DUSK. Why do so many Christians WORSHIP ON SUNDAY{or the first day of the week, i know that was Ressurection day- LOOKING FOR A SCRIPTURE VERSE THAT SAYS IT WAS CHANGED. I KNOW THE OLD LAW WAS DONE AWAY WITH THE COMING OF CHRIST, A NEW COVENANT. THANKS FOR YOUR DAILY DEVOTION 1

Sam: “Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.” (Colossians 2:16–17).

However, Colossians has been disputed as authentically Pauline scripture. It may be one of the many forgeries that was in circulation among the early church.
