If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
Sometimes, I will admit, that when I come home from a doctor’s appointment, I question whether or not the doctor really heard me. Is he/she really on my side? Or am I just one of so many patients they try to cram into one day and move along? More times than not, I have not been helped by doctors. Seldom can I even get two doctors to agree on the same diagnosis and treatment. Frustrating, to say the least.
This verse is a refreshing reminder that God is on my side. He is not just sitting on the sidelines cheering me on, although I believe He is, but He is actively leading and guiding me on my own particular healing path. As my coach and my cheerleader and my biggest fan; He’s my game changer!
Because God is for me, nothing that can come against me can stand against me. Not pain, not sickness, not disease, not allergies, not carpal tunnel. Regardless of the symptoms that may be raging in my body, I know who wins the game. And it is not over until He says it is over!
How can God be on my side? Because of the price Jesus paid on the cross, He took on everything the enemy could rightfully put on me so that I would not have to bear them. You might say I was His first round draft choice, as were you and He wants us in the game. Not because we are such great players, but because He wanted us on His team and wanted to bestow upon us all of heaven’s resources, including healing for our bodies – whatever is necessary to keep us in the game. I can’t earn this; it is a gift of grace. How amazing is that?
I am in awe of Your amazing grace, Father. I am so grateful that Jesus took my infirmities and pains and sorrows and sickness so that I could be free of them. What incredible grace! Thank You for being my biggest fan, my loudest cheerleader, my All-Wise and All-Knowing coach. Thank You for placing me on Your team and assuring me of the victory, Amen.
