God is For Me
Yesterday I was sitting on my back patio enjoying a beautiful summer morning with my bible in hand. I was looking up a few verses in Psalms when I ran across something that God knew I desperately needed to read and know deep within my heart. Four simple, yet profound words: God is for me. I penciled a box around those four words so I couldn't forget their power and meaning to me in that moment. Just the day before I had endured a rotten day. I cried out to God, sobbing in my bedroom for answers. I felt better after a good cry (don't we all?) and then God presented me with this important gem the next morning.
But today, it got even better. I sat up in bed and began to read my devotion from Charles Spurgeon. The focal verse was Psalm 56:9: "Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me."
Yes, the same verse I had just read the day before at random!
But God isn't random. He is perfect. His timing is perfect.
