Bible Verse for the Week- May 8th 2016
“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31
Is God really for us? How many times have we asked ourselves that question in our walk with the Lord when things don’t go our way or when we see things happen that we don’t understand, especially after we’ve prayed about them? The fact is, God is not only FOR us, He’s reconciled TO us. He’s not against us, He’s in covenant WITH us. He’s working FOR us on our behalf. All that He is and all that He has; all that He does and all that He plans to do is for us! Even when it seems that His acts are against us, you can be assured that they are for us.
The enemy may try his hardest … do his worst in this world to undermine the power of God, but we must remember that he is conquered … principalities and powers are spoiled and disarmed, and triumphed over in the Cross of Christ! The enemy is a defeated foe and the victory is won! It’s already done! If we can grasp the truth of God’s heart towards us, it will not matter who is opposing us or what is standing in our way! For we will be confident that our Heavenly Father is the biggest, strongest, most loving and giving person in the universe and has declared to the heavens that He is for us! Will you make this declaration today?
