If God Be For Us
Who Can Be Against Us
These past two weeks have been some of the hardest weeks for me. My husband and I finally decided to search for a house. We know that the only way we will be able to own a house is with God. He is the only one who can make this happen. We have so little income, our past is checkered. Really there is no reason why anyone would want to lend us money to buy a house. But, we are half way through the buying process. Lender says they see no problems with us getting the loan. July 12, 2019 is our closing date. Through this process I need to remember If God be for us, then who can be against us?
Fear, I like what Joyce says in this video that fear is just trusting the devil rather than having faith and trusting God. I know God brought us to this home. Things just seemed to come together, our realtor and lender are both Christians and fighting for us to get it. I need to trust God more than letting my thoughts and fears get in the way.
For so many years I have lived with rejection, felt stuck, like there was no way out of my situation. There would be no way for my husband and I to live together again. Even right now my thoughts are running like crazy. All these decisions to make, that when it really comes down to it the loan will not go through, we will not have money to actually physically move, we won’t have the money to make the repairs on the house, etc. etc. How does one combat thoughts that seem to cripple you from moving forward?
I think for me right now I need to recite the line If God be for us then who can be against us every time the thoughts become overwhelming. I know God promised me that I would live with my husband in our own home. He made this promise when we separated over 12 years ago. It has been a long hard road, but I think God is bringing us to the next chapter in our lives. We focus on God more, depend on Him for everything that happens in our lives. So, for Him to work I need to keep releasing my fears to Him.
How about you? Is Fear holding you back? Is the devil keeping you from fully living for God? What could be the next step for you to walk into His plan for you? Join me today to pray and release our fears to the Lord so that He can use us fully.
