I am for you, I am on your side.

God and His people are for you.  Often in the midst of a disagreement with each other, my husband and I will remind each other: "I am for you. I am on your side." This life we are living as Christians is a daily living battle against the enemy of our souls. We must remind our spirits that we are not against each other and that our greatest defender is for us! God, as our Father and Protector, has placed safe people in our lives to surround us that we can trust. They are also for us and experience the same trials we do. We are not meant to live this life alone, which is why Christ established the church, in order to encourage one another and together stand against the enemy. Who are your 'safe people'? Those that the Lord has established around you that are for you? I encourage you today, pray with them that we may resist the devil and remain steadfast in the faith. 

Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.  Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 
-1 Peter 5:7-9 (NKJV)
