Rom. 8:31 What can we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?
What can we say? If God be for us, who can be against us? What does it really matter who is against us if God is for us? Think about it. God is the absolute creator and authority over everything. He is the one who gives and sustains life. He is absolute power and there is nothing that can ever come close to withstanding Him. He is God and if He is for us, we are safe and secure. There is nothing to fear when God is with us.
The real issue then is how do we know for sure that God is for us? There is only one way that we can count on God being for us, and that is for us to be living in Christ. We must not only proclaimed our allegiance to Him, we must live like He is our Savior and Lord. God is with those who are with Christ and He is not with those who do not know Christ. It's as simple as that.
There is so much God wants to do in us. There is so much He wants to show us. There is so much power He wants to display through us. There is so much He wants to give us of His goodness and love. But, He will not do anything for us if we don't seek Christ and His forgiveness. What Jesus did at Calvary is the key to know that God is us.
If God is not for us, then He is against us. We must choose which way it is. Do you know for a fact that God is for you? If so, thank Him and praise Him today for your salvation and the life you live in Christ. If you don't know that God is for you, you can know it for a fact right now. Call on the name of Jesus, confess your sins, ask Him to forgive you, and accept what He has done for you at Calvary and you will be saved and you will know God is for you.
