Romans 8:31



 Romans 8:31

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?


The book of John tells us that there is no truth in Satan. When he lies, he speaks his native tongue because he is the father of lies. How easily we fall prey to his accusations!


Today’s verse stiffens our spines and raises our heads though. When we find refuge in God, He comes to our defense. When we suit up in His armor, the fiery darts of the enemy fall powerless.


What shall we say when condemnation crouches with all its guilt and shame? God is for us. Christ bore our condemnation – along with our sin – at Calvary. No more condemnation for us!


What shall we say when old temptations whisper suggestively in our ears? God is for us. We are dead to sin and alive to the righteousness of Christ. The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead rises up inside of us to help us resist the devil.


What shall we say when fear threatens to overwhelm? God is for us. The Spirit confirms that we are the heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ; all of Their sufficiency is ours.


God will turn the things that Satan intends for our harm to work to our benefit. And through it all, nothing will separate us from His great love. God is for us, and that makes us more than conquerors.


Blessing: 


May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. You are the child of the sovereign God. He defends you. His Word speaks truth over you. His Spirit comes to your aid. His love for you never fails. May you live in the confidence of these rich, immeasurable blessings. In the name of Jesus…amen.
