We witnessed a funny thing on the way to the pediatrician's office yesterday...a flock of Canadian geese splashing in a drainage ditch while just across the road, a whole pond was there for the taking. "Stupid birds...," I thought, but then I was reminded how many times I've settled for lesser things, myself. I could have "peace that passes all understanding," but spend the day fretting. I could rest in His forgiveness but instead I allow condemnation to steal my joy.
What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. (Romans 8:31-34)
