Psalms 28:6-8 MSG Blessed be GOD– he heard me praying. (7) He proved he’s on my side; I’ve thrown my lot in with him. Now I’m jumping for joy, and shouting and singing my thanks to him. (8) GOD is all strength for his people, ample refuge for his chosen leader;
If you don’t believe that God is on your side, you either don’t know Him or you aren’t looking. God, the faithful God (Deut 7:9), is on your side. That doesn’t mean that everything in life is going to go exactly how you want it to or think that it should. There are simply too many factors including the will of people to say that. Jesus Himself said, “In this world you will have trouble.” Thankfully He didn’t stop there, but continued “but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)”
I’m not too hard-pressed to list off any number of things the Father has done for me that prove to me beyond any shadow of a doubt that He is on my side. I dare to say that all of us could make a glorious gratitude list. But even if you don’t think you can right now, the fact that He has overcome the world is proof enough that He is on your side. The God of Angel Armies loves you so much and He gave his only begotten son, the Lord Jesus to prove it. He made a way through Christ that we could come to Him and gave us His Holy Spirit to live with us and in us forever (John 14:16-17, Heb 13:5). He gave us His Spirit and made us part of the family. If you are a born-again Believer in the Lord Jesus, then you are a child of God and He is your Father (Romans 8:15-16).
Your Father God loves you. He’s proven He’s on your side and He’ll never leave you. What’s more He’s given you access to Him anytime you want (Hebrews 4:16) and He hears your prayers. Nearly one third of all the Psalms mention their author crying out, calling out, praying, etc… and the Lord heard, answered, or delivered them. Not one of them says, “I called out to God and He ignored me” or “I called out to God and He said, “NO!”.”
Don’t be afraid, He’s heard you praying. Your Heavenly Father is faithful and has proven that He is on your side. Go ahead and throw your lot in with Him. Trust Him. When you do there is no reason to fear. Instead, you can jump for joy, shout, dance and sing. He is a safe refuge and He is your strength. He’s proven He is on your side. Fear Not!
