God Is For Me!

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

"When I cry out to You, 
Then my enemies will turn back;
This I know, because God is for me.”
Psalm 56:9
When circumstances bring me down;
When doubt and anxious fears abound;
When Satan’s lies are all around;
I simply must remember…God is for me.
And when the path I take is long;
My heart too heavy for a song;
When I don’t know where I belong;
It’s then I must remember…God is for me.
If loneliness would steal the night,
As those I love are gone from sight;
And there’s no one to hold me tight,
I whisper to myself that God is for me.
Oh what a blessed thought is this…
That in my times of faithlessness,
The Spirit in me bears witness
To reassure my heart that God is for me.
“What, then, shall we say in response to this?
If God is for us, who can be against us?”
Romans 8:31
