"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
(Romans 8:31- 32 KJV)
Anyone, and especially God, who would love us enough to send His Son to earth to eventually die on a cross for the removal of our sins, has to be for us. But this is Our Awesome God we are talking about. His total rule and dominion includes everywhere that we know exists. He is BIG! Everywhere! His justice, His mercy, His grace, His love is complete and far reaching. This God can do anything and He is for us!
Then we look at Psalm 118, where it says: "Let them now that fear the Lord say, that his mercy endureth forever. I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? (Psalms 118:4-6 KJV). We should not fear Our Awesome God as we fear man because He loves us and is for us. We should fear disappointing or disobeying Him. Man should have a reverent fear of God because He is in control and will see that justice is done for all. We need to continue doing what God wants and following Him, leaving others for Him to discipline. Heaven is our home when we believe and accept His Son as our Savior. We obey his commandments out of love and gratitude, saving up treasures in heaven.
We need to remember, if we are going to do God's will and the work He has given us, that, "a servant is not above his master.."(John 13:16). This Awesome God we are following is the MASTER, He created justice, love, mercy and grace. He created everything good and nothing is too big for Him or too small for Him including you; and you can trust Him with anything. Give reverent fear to Our Awesome God and let Him take care of all your problems. Come with us as we work in Our Awesome God's fields, telling others about His story, Jesus Christ's Salvation, and about our eternal home with Him, trying to help them and ourselves to understand Our Creator better.
