If God Be For Us…

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.  For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.  Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.  What shall we then say to these things?  If God be for us, who can be against us?

Romans 8:28-31

We looked yesterday at verse 28 and at the fact that “all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”  Today, we see the end of this passage in verse 31: “What shall we then say to these things?  If God be for us, who can be against us?”  That is a powerful statement.

Sometimes in life we get discouraged.  Sometimes we think that everything and everyone are against us.  Sometimes it feels like we are alone in the midst of a great battle and that we are losing that battle.  We look at the world and the Devil and we feel so weak and insignificant.

It is during those times we should remember the words of verse 31, “If God be for us, who can be against us?”  God Himself – the Creator of the world, is on our side.  God Himself is for us.  Who can stand against Him?  God is greater than everything else in all of the universe.  And that God is “for us.”  There is nothing and there is no one that we need to fear with Almighty God on our side.

That can be a huge encouragement in our darkest hours!  “If God be for us, who can be against us?”
