I sit here in bed, on this late Sunday night and early Monday morning, speechless, thinking about the love of God towards us! I have no verse or song to recite, just this great thought of His love to send His son to die for us! The sermon today talked about the day of the Lord and how it will be a day of judgement...but God put that judgement on His son for us! God didn't suppress His wrath; if He did, that would make Him unjust; but He choose to pour it out on His son instead! This leaves me so speechless and in great amazement as I sit here! There's nothing in me that deserved His love! I am a wretched sinner, but God's grace covers all those sins! I have nothing to boast in, in myself! I can only boast in Christ my savior! Reminds me of a song we sing at our church, and the chorus goes like this, "This the power of the Cross; Christ became sin for us; took the blame, bore the wrath, we stand forgiven at the Cross!" Thank you, Jesus, for taking the blame for me! I sit in amazement at the thought of Your great love for us!! Praise God!

Psalm 118: The LORD is on my side!

"Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever!...Out of my distress I called on the LORD; the LORD answered me and set me free. The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? The LORD is on my side as my helper; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes...Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever!"
~Psalm 118:1, 5-9, 29

The Lord will answer you in your time of distress! He will set you free!! If the Lord is on your side, you can harm you, or who shall you fear? What encouraging words these are, from the psalmist!! I was flipping through my Bible, and landed on this, and it is such an encouragement! It reminds me of the New Testament verse that says if God is for us, who can be against us! Think about it...if the maker of the universe, the very creator of everything, the all-powerful God, is for can anything be against you? The very thing that is against you was created by God, so whom shall we fear? When we have God on our side, their is nothing to fear! He hasn't promised us an easy life, but He did promise that He wouldn't give us anything we couldn't handle. And the greatest promise of all was that He will always be there with us in the good and the bad! Praise God!
