Jonathan Howes

In Romans 8:31-39 the Apostle Paul instructs Christians that God is for us, and he wants what is best for our lives.  Through 5 rhetorical questions, the Apostle Paul reminds us of the incredible benefits of being on God’s team.

 Since God is for us, we should never worry about these 5 things.

1. Opposition
“What, then, shall we say in response to this?  If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31)  If God is for us, we do not have to worry about opposition. If God is on our team, we win.  If God is on our side, the enemy has no chance.  “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4)  The one who is in you, Jesus, is greater than the one in the world, Satan.  Since God is on our side, we do not have to worry about opposition.

Once we come to know Jesus personally, God is for us!  And if God is for us, who can be against us?  Let’s thank Him today that we do not have to worry about these 5 things: opposition, provision, accusation, condemnation, and separation.
