Is God a Scrooge?
by Berni Dymet
Rom. 8:31,32 What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not withhold his own Son, but gave him up for all of us, will he not with him also give us everything else?
Have you ever felt that God's holding back? Something we really want -the right marriage partner or a baby or moving on with something new in our lives. Whatever … and it's just not happening.
Sometimes - to be honest - I was starting to think - well, I wonder if God's being a bit of a Scrooge here? You know.
Problem is - what happens is that everything else may be going fantastically well in our lives, except for this one thing and - so our focus narrows to just that one thing. We lose the big picture.
So - let's just stand back for a moment and take a look. You and I - we turned our backs on God. But He loves us so much; He didn't even withhold His Son as the price for bringing us back. Instead, He gave Him up for all of us - so how much more is He going to be generous with everything else?
So - with God on our side, who can possibly be against us?
