He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. - Colossians 1:15-16

For You and Not Against You

How easy it is to grumble and complain
About everything you are not
Than bring you before the throne of grace in prayer

How easy it is to focus on what you say or don’t say
Do or don’t do
Rather than be concerned if my own heart is right before the Lord

How easy it is to forget that I am for you
And not against you
That I have been called to come alongside you and be your champion

Lord, help me to focus on what You are calling me to be
To remove the plank from my own eye
In humility help remove the speck from another’s eye

Amen, may we take not the easy road.

This is lovely Susan; in humility we can't focus on ourselves, but rather we need to completely submit to God and die to ourselves, because we can’t be full of God if we are full of ourselves! :)

Blessings and hugs,

Agreed, Susan. This is wonderful.

Hi Susan,
It is sure nice to know that Jesus is for me and not against me. Thank you for sharing and many blessings,
