God Is For You, Not Against You

What then shall we say to these things- If God is for us, who can be against us-Romans 8-31

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31

Are you faced with challenges in your life right now? Are you having marital problems or financial woes? Maybe your child is going astray or an old illness has returned. What then will you say to all these things?

Do you know what God wants you to say? He wants you to say, “If God is for me, who can be against me?” The Bible tells us that God, the Almighty, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, is for you! What problem can fasten its grip on you when the Almighty God is for you? Can the devil come successfully against you with God on your side?

If God is for you today, if God is for you right now, you don’t have to moan, “If only I had this…If only I didn’t say that…” And you don’t have to worry about the future: “What if this happens…What if we don’t have enough…” My friend, regretting the past and worrying about the future won’t change anything. (Isaiah 43:18-19; Philippians 3:13) That is where the accuser of your life lives. God has seen your past and and has chosen, because of His amazing grace to forgive and forget it. (Isaiah 43:25) Look to your heavenly Father, instead. Because He is for you at this present moment, you can be confident that He will help you and provide for you. He says,

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Beloved, God sent His Son to die for you. And Jesus gave you a blood-bought right to an abundant life full of meaning and purpose! He gave you a blood-bought right to walk in divine health all the days of your life! He gave you a blood-bought right to His supply even when the economy goes down!

You have all these things not because you deserve them, but because Jesus shed His blood and gave you the right to have them. All these blessings are yours today because God is for you! And if God is for you, who can be against you!
