Some words my good friend shared with me:
There are three types of people: the goers, the senders, and the disobedient.
If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?And here is the chorus to a song I love:
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Lord, who am I compared to Your glory?Now after all this, I ask: what does that make us? And who are we?
Lord, who am I compared to Your majesty?
I'm your beloved, Your creation, and You love me as I am.
You've called me chosen for Your kingdom.
Unashamed to call me your own. I'm your beloved.
