September 26, 2012: If God is With Us, Who Can Be Against Us?

~ by Mary Galvano

One of my favorite things to do is to spend time outdoors surrounded by God’s creations. I especially love mornings. My husband and I live on a lake and we see such beautiful sunrises and all I can say is, “Thank you, Lord.” When I lived in South West Florida I enjoyed seeing the magnificent sunsets of the Gulf of Mexico along Florida’s coastline. In fact, people along the coast have parties and cheer on these sunsets as the sun goes down in hopes to seeing a green flash.

This morning, as I gaze out and notice the sunlight hit the water, I see diamonds dancing for His glory. I can’t help to sing, “Glory to God in the highest.” It is easy to feel His presence in our favorite places and we should spend time alone with Him, but it’s when we are out in the world that we need Him the most.

“Vocatus atque non vocatus, Deus aderit”, Latin for, “Bidden or not bidden, God is present.” No matter where we are or what we are doing God is there.

All we have to do is take the time to notice. He is everywhere! This is cause for great celebration and singing! He is there watching us and guiding us. He will never abandon you. By knowing this we can face anything. All you have to say to yourself is the name “Jesus” and you will feel His presence. The next time you are alone or afraid say that most wonderful, powerful name. It works!

Today and always keep Jesus close to your heart noticing Him wherever you go. If God is for you, who can be against you?
