And I believe that He is fierce and He is faithful

Featuring Dennis Jernigan Posted on January 20, 2010

There have been many times in my life where I have had to literally fight my way out of a bind physically.  Times when it seemed no one was willing to step into the fray on my behalf. There have been many times since I was given a new identity that I have had to face mocking and ridicule because of my stand.  But no one seemed to stand up in my defense. For those reasons I have often found it difficult to believe I was worth fighting for, but reality is that Jesus Christ thought I was worth fighting for - worth His life! Reality is that He fiercely stood in the gap for me...stood between me and the enemy...defeated the very forces of hell on my behalf...bore the ravages of my own sin...paid my debt...and continues to go to bat for me on a daily basis. My God is jealous in His love for me. He is faithful to defend me and carry me through.
Take time today to meditate on the ferocity of His great love for you.

God is jealous, and the LORD avenges;
The LORD avenges and is furious.
The LORD will take vengeance on His adversaries,
And He reserves wrath for His enemies;
The LORD is slow to anger and great in power,
And will not at all acquit the wicked.
Nahum 1:2-3
