Happy Monday, Child of God!

If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Romans 8:31 (NLT)

Welcome to Monday morning!  Sometimes that thought isn't always so inviting. Right? But think about it. If the God of the universe, the God that controls everything, the God that is involved in our intimate details is for you, is there anything at all that can stand against you?

Maybe part of the problem is we don't really believe that he loves us that much. We look at ourselves in the mirror and think "He can't possibly be for me, look at my life." What we forget is that we are looking at the wrong reflection.

What we should be looking at is Jesus. How can we look at his death on the cross and believe that God is not for us? How can we look at the decision he made to take it all the way through his suffering to his death and not know that it was for each of us individually that he died?

When those voices in your head tell you that you are a failure, look at Jesus.
When the voices say that there is too much in your past for you to be a child of God, look at cross.
When you feel like you just don't measure up, look at the One who said "Whosoever believes in me will not perish."
You are a Whosoever.
You are the one he died for.

Happy Monday, Child of God!  You are loved!
