 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? — Romans 8:31

The question is not simply, “Who can be against us?” You could answer that one. Who is against you? Disease, inflation, corruption, exhaustion. Calamities confront, and fears imprison. Were Paul’s question, “Who can be against us?” we could list our foes much easier than we could fight them. But that is not the question. The question is If GOD is for us, who can be against us?

Indulge me for a moment. Four words in this verse deserve your attention. Read slowly the phrase, “God is for us.” Please pause for a minute before you continue. Read it again, aloud. God is for us.

  • God is for us.
  • God is for us.
  • God is for us.
  • God is for us.

God is for you. Your parents may have forgotten you, your teachers may have neglected you, your siblings may be ashamed of you, but within reach of your prayers is the Maker of the oceans. God!

God is for you. Not “maybe,” not “has been,” not “was,” not “would be,” but “God is!” He is for you. Today. At this hour. At this minute. As you read this sentence. No need to wait in line or come back tomorrow. He is with you. He could not be closer than He is at this second. His loyalty won’t increase if you are better nor lessen if you are worse. He is for you.

God is for you. Turn to the sidelines; that’s God cheering your run. Look past the finish line; that’s God applauding your steps. Listen for Him in the bleachers, shouting your name. Too tired to continue? He’ll carry you. Too discouraged to fight? He’s picking you up. God is for you.

God is for you. Had he a calendar, your birthday would be circled. If he drove a car, your name would be on his bumper. If there’s a tree in heaven, he’s carved your name in the bark. We know He has a tattoo, and we know what it says.

‘I have engraved you on the palms of my hands,” He declares. — Isaiah 49:16

God is with you. Knowing that, who is against you? Can death harm you now? Can disease rob your life? Can your purpose be taken or your value diminished? No. Though hell itself may set itself against you, no one can defeat you. You are protected. God is with you.

Do not let the enemy steal your joy, nor your husband, wife, job, children, but in everything give thanks unto the Lord and let Him have His way as He has promised you in His word. Brethren the joy of the Lord is your strength and you have conquered everything in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. There is no need for you to be complaining but I am encouraging you to go on rejoicing in the Lord.

You should be singing “Thank You Lord”, “Satan is defeated Hallelujah”, “Cover me Lord under the blood”. There are so many other songs you should be singing and having a song and praise worship wherever you are. Take your deliverance and shout for the walls of the enemy that surrounds you are falling. Take it, take it and go free in the Name of the Lord.
