What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?Romans 8:31
The Lord is saying, “Beloved, I am for you! I see your areas of struggle and weakness, yet when I look at you, I view you through the finished work of the cross. I say that you are altogether lovely, My darling, and there is no flaw in you (Song of Songs 4:7). I know you more intimately than anyone, yet I love you the most. My love for you is perfect and untainted.
“…so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”Ephesians 3:17-19
“I see just how far you’ve come on this journey. For though man looks at the outward appearance, I look at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7). I see your desire to do good and to please Me. I am very near to you, Beloved. My Word is in your mouth and in your heart (Romans 10:8). I am closer than the very air you breathe.
“This is what the Lord says:
“Let not the wise boast of their wisdomJeremiah 9:23-24
or the strong boast of their strength
or the rich boast of their riches,
but let the one who boasts boast about this:
that they have the understanding to know me,
that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness,
justice and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,”
declares the Lord.
“I am, and always will be, your ever-present help in times of trouble. You will come to know that your biggest asset is living in intimacy with Me. I am pleased with you, and My love for you is unchanging and everlasting. Keep clinging tightly to My hand; I will be faithful to lead and guide you along the way. My strength is made perfect in your weakness. Stay close to Me, for I am with you!”
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.Isaiah 43:2
