If God Is for Us

As believers in Jesus Christ, we can know for sure that God is for us. Read these affirming words from the Bible. "If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not freely give us all things?" (Romans 8:32). 

"If God is for us, who can be against us?" Certainly, in life you will have people who are against you. Yet, that never means God is not for you. Understand that you will not always get everyone's acceptance and approval. Even worse, some may even falsely accuse you and slander you. However, that should never be interpreted that God is not for you.

How can you know without any doubt that God is for you? Look at Jesus hanging on the cross. God did not spare His only Son for you as a believer in Christ. His Son was despised and rejected of men. Yet, on the third day, God raised Jesus from the dead. He died for you. He is risen indeed for you!

Yes! In Christ, God is for you. That does not mean you will never face opposition, trials and even suffering. It does mean, no matter what problems you face in this life, God is for you. "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28). No doubt about it, God is for us.
