“He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” Romans 8:32

If God is for us who could be against us?  When I hear this promise, I instinctively shout “YES!”  But when I’m in the midst of trial and turbulent storms that is quite a different story!

It’s all too easy to be triumphant when all is well, but the heart of the Christian faith is that God loves us so much that he would even be subjected to death on a cross for us.  The promises of God are rooted in the full extent of Jesus’ passion.

He went to his unjust execution with you in mind.

Because this demonstrates God’s character we can be sure that the other promises will ring true.  He will give us all things based on this reality.

Pretty wild, huh?
