GOD IS FOR YOU
Romans 8:31-32 KJV
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?  He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
When challenges come your way as they oftentimes do, you sometimes tend to wonder if you “missed” it somewhere along the line. Could all these be happening because of some wrong thought, word or action? The enemy cashes in on existing insecurities and fears to accuse in such cases. Challenges are unavoidable parts of our daily lives. They oftentimes come as opportunities to grow and mature in many ways.
However, through all of this comes God’s shining promise of His abiding presence. God is both with you and for you. He is your support and help. As a child of God, no matter what you are facing right now, the Father is assuring you of his unfailing help and your consequent victory.
When the promise of God says “.....who can be against us”, it’s not saying that there won’t be challenges to face and enemies to confront. What it literally means is that no man or situation will successfully overcome you. God promised the same thing to Joshua.
Joshua 1:5 KJV
There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life:..... I WILL BE WITH THEE: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Joshua drew strength and confidence from the knowledge of God’s presence and support. He achieved great military feats as a result.
Fear not o child of God, you shall prevail over circumstances and overthrow every resistance. You shall be victorious because of the abiding presence and eternal support of the King of kings. God is for you. God is with you.
The enemy maybe asking you at this moment how God could possibly be for you when you’ve done wrong but you must be confident that the presence of the Father in your life is on the basis of the eternal gift of His Son Jesus the Christ.
Strengthen your heart with this truth and let the peace of God flood through your entire being. God is with you and God is for you. Since God never fails, in partnership with God, you’ll never fail.
Put a smile on your face and square those drooping shoulders as you go today. Keep reminding yourself no matter what comes your way - God is with you therefore, no thing or no man can successfully defeat you.
Go in the peace of God. I see obstacles disappearing before you and victories rushing to you. You shall indeed testify of the faithfulness of God in the land of the living.
Let your “AMEN” agree with God.
Shalom beloved. Do have a good one today.
