Read Psalm 139:1-18

If God is for us, who is against us?

--Romans 8:31 (NRSV)

God is for us! I remember the first time I genuinely realized this truth. I was a recently abandoned, young wife, living alone for the first time. Dejected, I sat in a sparsely furnished apartment more than 1,000 miles from family and friends--miserable, humiliated, and very afraid.

Yet in the midst of all that fear, anxiety, shame, and anger, I heard God saying through Psalm 139, "Do you think I don't know? Do you think I don't care? Do you think I can't be trusted with your future? My grace is sufficient for you, even in this." (See 2 Cor. 12:9) And time proved that to be true. God and God's people got me through that struggle and loss.

I think the Apostle Paul heard a similar message on the road to Damascus (See Acts 9:1-19). Paul came to see and to say that "in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us" (Rom. 8:37). Nothing can separate us from God's all-powerful guidance, goodness and sustaining love.

PRAYER

Holy, glorious God, help us to see your will and truth and to listen to your voice. We pray to be yours in spirit and in truth. Amen.

Thought for the Day

Nothing we can do deserves God's attention, but nothing about us escapes God's care.
