God is for me...

Just had to share this quote that really touched me.  It is from Jeffrey R. Holland's new book, For Times of Trouble.  
Psalms 56:9
When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.
"This I know;...God is for me."  All confidence, all comfort, all strength, all safety starts there.  "God is for us."  He is never against us.  He will always be against sin, abuse, error in whatever form they come and from whomever they may flow.  But even then He has the divine ability to separate His opposition to the sin from His unyielding love for the sinner.  God is for us.  He loves us.  He is our Heavenly Father.  He never sleeps nor slumbers in His watchcare over us.  His work and His glory are to save us, exalt us, to see us safely home with Him.  "God is for us."  That truth has to be seared into each of our hearts, written in bold letters across the tissue of our brains, and never forgotten.  "God is for me."
My goal this week is to catch up with all of the wonderful things that happened over the holiday break. Many blog posts to come!
