GOD IS FOR US
With God for us, He is more than the world against us. Nothing can separate us from His love. That blessing cannot be taking lightly. We have a God on our side who is with us every step of the way. When the world is against us, God is for us. When people turn against us, God is there for us. There is no situation in life to fear because God is always there. Romans 8:31, a familiar passage, is our scriptural reference for today’s devotion.
“What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?”
Paul writes in this chapter about the power of God. In this verse, he clearly states that no one can overtake us. He says if God be for us, who is against us. There will be difficulties, but they will lose their power to defeat us because our sustaining assurance is that God shall keep us. God’s power is supreme, and no power can overcome His power. We have this assurance that God is with us. Paul is grateful for this rich blessing for He personally knew suffering and pain. He was confident that the Lord would sustain him and that it is God who justifies. Paul speaks of God’s love and power, and no one can bring charges against him, for it is God who condemns. Never forget that with God on your side, there is nothing to fear.
