Topic: God Is For You [TREM Devotional Wednesday July 4, 2018]
“For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.” – Isaiah 54:7
God is for you. He will never be against you. That is the benefit and the heritage we received in Christ; not because of us, but because of Jesus. He is our heritage! He has decided He will never be wroth with you again. “For a small moment….” He used to be angry, but that was before Christ came. He gave the law! When you do good, you get good. You do bad, you get bad. That was the type of operation before Christ came. There were always conditions to His promises. Obey the commandments of the law, then I will bless you. If you disobey, then I won’t bless you. If thou can confess your sins, He is faithful and just to forgive you. This means if I don’t confess, I will not be forgiven? It’s always conditional.
So, He said “For a moment have I forsaken thee, in a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment;, but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee. For this is as the waters of Noah……… (Isaiah 54:7- 9 KJV). God was about to swear, and He doesn’t need to swear because God cannot lie. The reason He went on to swear is so He can give you an iron-clad guarantee. So, that you don’t have a double mind about His relationship with you.
Some people are busy preaching an angry God. He is not even in a bad mood. He has loved you with an everlasting love. It is a done deal. God is for you. Do you know what that does? Here is what it does. When the devil says, you can’t be healed, God takes over. When you don’t have somebody to speak for you, He takes over, because He is for you. Receive your healing! Receive your breakthrough! Receive your open door in the name of Jesus. No more delay for you! No more postponement! No more disappointment, no more failure and no more stress. God is for you!
