Our family believes....If God is with us, who is against us?
1Why do you brag about the evil you’ve done, you hero?
The mercy of God lasts all day long!
2Your tongue makes up threats.
It’s like a sharp razor, you master of deceit.
3You prefer evil to good.
You prefer lying to speaking the truth.
4You love every destructive accusation, you deceitful tongue!
5But God will ruin you forever.
He will grab you and drag you out of your tent.
He will pull your roots out of this world of the living.
6Righteous people will see this and be struck with fear.
They will laugh at you and say,
7“Look at this person who refused to make God his fortress!
Instead, he trusted his great wealth
and became strong through his greed.”
8But I am like a large olive tree in God’s house.
I trust the mercy of God forever and ever.
9I will give thanks to you forever
for what you have done.
In the presence of your godly people,
I will wait with hope in your good name.

MAKE sure they have a heart of servant hood.
MAKE sure they are in that office for YOU.
PRAY before you vote.
EDUCATE yourself to what the candidates stand for.
9 Open your mouth, judge righteously,
And defend the rights of the afflicted and needy.

He loves us and seeks us out to give us the desires of our heart.
We'll wait on Him and His justice.
He is Good and giving!
18 Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you;
he rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait for him!

So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn't hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn't gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God's chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ's love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture.
