Christ for You
by Apostle (Prof.) Johnson Suleman
Bible Reading: Deuteronomy 25-28
Text: “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8 :31.
A part from Christ being in you, another dimension of Christ in relation to you is “Christ being for you.” The implication encapsulated in Romans 8 :3.
With Christ for you, you become an unstoppable juggernaut. Every opposition against your forward movement is bulldozed away. It is a great thing when God is for you because anyone trying to curse you would merely be wasting his time.
We see this manifested in the life of the children of Israel on their way to the Promised Land. All attempts to curse them failed because God was for them. Balak, the king of Moab hired Balaam; a Prophet, to curse them. God dealt with the prophet by warning him against his mission through the donkey that spoke like a man. Besides this, three consecutive times, he pronounced blessings upon God’s people (Numbers 23 :8 and 23).
How then do you obtain His support? It is by drawing near to him (James 4 :8). This means you don’t serve him only with the month, but also with your heart. Drawing close to God means spending quality time in personal fellowship with Him, doing the things that please Him.
If you apply this principles to your relationship with God, you will be shocked at how real he will become and for sure he will stand up in your defence just like the bridegroom will stand up for his bride.
Prayer: My Father! My Father! As I begin to pray, fill my heart with your love and always be for me today and always as you do.
