We can go through life and be bogged down by life’s hardships and miseries. We can wonder why the world is against us. The truth is, if we really knew who was for us, we would never have to worry again.
The omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, omnibenevolent, infinite King of the Universe is for us. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son to us so that we may have everlasting, eternal, endless, abundant life that starts now.
As we receive the free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross, we reign in life. This does not mean we will not have troubles or difficult seasons but it does mean that God will work out everything in our life together for good.
As we follow Jesus, our Good Shepherd, He will lead us to green pastures, still waters; He will restore our soul. When times are tough, He is right there comforting us and leading us past our enemies to a table prepared before us where our cup runs over. We will find that goodness and grace pursue us as we dwell in the House of the Lord forever.
