Welcome to God Today with me, Nathan, and Lydia Marrow. Today we want to talk about the fact that God is with you. So many times as we travel, and as we minister around the world, and around America, many people will ask the question, “Is God really for me? Is He really thinking about me? Is He really interceding on my behalf?”
I just want to share this scripture. This has been a profound thing in my life. Psalm 139:18 says, “His thoughts for you are more than the grains of sand. His thoughts for you are more than the grains of sand.” Here is the cool thing about that. If you live to 80 years of age, that is 2.5 billion seconds. I am pretty confident if you go on a beach, there are a lot more than 2.5 billion grains of sand. So what does that really mean?
What it means is this. He is thinking about you more than once every second. In fact, He never stops thinking about you ever. And you are wondering whether God is for you? Whether God is listening to your prayers? Whether God is interested in your life? He is interested in your life more than you are! He is interested in your future. He is interested in communing with you. Because He is interested in every single area of your life.
It says, “Without faith, [Herbrews 11:6] it is impossible to please God.” But God wants you to connect through the eyes of faith. To know that even though you can’t see Him, He is with you. He is for you. He can’t stop thinking about you. He definitely thinks about you more than you think about yourself. To me, that absolutely blows my mind, Lydia.
In the Bible, I love, Babe, what you are talking about. In the Book of Isaiah, He said, “Fear not, for I am with you.” This is the key to living the Christian life with victory. This is the key to walking out who God has called you to be. You know you are on His heart. You’re on His mind. He is for you. And He is with you. And that means that we can face whatever happens in this life with the Holy Ghost boldness and confidence that we are going to be successful and we are going to accomplish everything that He has purposed for our lives. He is with you, He is for you, and He is never going to leave you. We want to encourage you with that today.
Lastly, I just want to say God is never going to let you down. He has never let the Marrows down. Not one time. But you have to believe. Not with your natural eyes, but with your eyes of faith, and your soul, and your spirit. That God is for you.
Father, everybody that is watching this God Today right now, I pray you would give them assurance that you are with them, you are for them, that this very day, whatever they need, whatever they are believing for, they know with assurance that you are with them, you are for them, you are interceding for them. And when they pray to you, let them have that absolute surety that you are listening to their prayers. Let them know that you are the God of their lives. In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
