God is for you!

(James Smith)

"God is for me!" Psalm 56:9

Beloved, the greatest mercy a sinner can enjoy — is to have God on his side, and employed in his most important concerns! In Christ, this mercy is yours!

God is for you!

He chose you in Christ before the world began.
He formed you to show forth His praise.
He preserved you in Christ until He called you by grace.
He quickened you by His Spirit, and led you to Jesus.
He has given you His Son, and promised every additional good.
He has said to you, "You are Mine!" You have said, "I am Yours!"
He is now your refuge and strength! He is . . .
  tenderly concerned for your welfare,
  devotedly attached to your cause,
  and observes every step you take!

He may try your faith — but will certainly supply your needs. He may exercise your patience — but will never turn a deaf ear to your cries, except you indulge iniquity in your heart.

No parent ever felt so deeply interested in the welfare of a beloved child — as God does for all His children. He says, "Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are Mine! When you go through deep waters and great trouble — I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty — you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression — you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior!" Isaiah 43:1-3. Trusting such a promise, who can fail!

"God is the best friend — but the worst enemy!"
