What, then, shall we say in response to this? 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, along with him, graciously give us all things?
What is difficult for me to remember is this: even though God gives us everything we need, including help in carrying our burdens, it will not always look like the help we were expecting, or felt we needed. Like other answered prayers, God’s help with our burdens may come in unexpected forms. When I call out for peace or emotional strength, it may not come that instant. But I can be sure, if God is for me, there can be no one winning against me.
Father God, With you in my heart, I have strength and peace. You are generous beyond all measure. I am eternally grateful. Amen
