Think about the people in your life that are pro-you? I hope you have a long list! Those you consider friends, those who are loyal and supportive. Hopefully you number your family, spouse, kids, parents etc. in that number. A week or so ago my wife came home and found me initialing golf balls for a charity event I was playing in. She asked me if I was preparing ahead of time by autographing them. I laughed and told her no, but it made me feel so good and important for her to think somebody would value me enough to want my autograph. It made me feel special even if she was joking with me. Sadly, many of us think and act as if no one is pro-us!
I read this scripture this week and I hope it boots your morale! Somebody is for you! Isaiah 30:18 (NIV) says, “Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!” God’s not just on your side; He longs to be for you! He gets up each new day with the purpose of showing you compassion. This is His justice!
God is for us! God is an “Us fan”! He wants our autograph; he has carved our names in a tree with a heart around it, and has a picture of us on His refrigerator! Maybe I exaggerate a little but His word says our names are written on His hand, and He captures all our tears. Let this encourage us to believe the best, keep reaching forward in faith, expect our miracle. Our Heavenly Father is for us!
