When the world feels like it’s turning sideways, I am learning to take solace in God's word.
We have been hit hard with parenting issues these days, the kinds that make your heart wrench. The kinds of issues that make you feel like you can’t parent right and you have no business trying. The issues that stump you and leave you wracking your brain and your heart for any kind of resource. They are the things that make you want to run away, never to return.
There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his son, but gave him up for us all-how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus who died-more than that, who was raised to life-is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
Today, let’s not allow condemnation to drag us down. Today, let’s make a choice to embrace the truth found in Romans 8. Today let’s lean on the great interceder, who is always praying for us. He’s rooting for you. He’s rooting for me. Friends, we do have what it takes because God made it so.
