Who Can Be Against Us?
"What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?"
"If God is for you, on your side, cheering you on, what opponent could possibly overcome Him?
We want life to be like a blowout in sports.
A blowout occurs when one team scores in the opening seconds and continues to pound the opponents with more points, blocking the opponents from ever scoring. 48–0. 76–0. 102–0.
Life isn't like that.
We face forces that push back and get ahead at times.
We'll score big in a relationship, then lose a job.
Or we'll ace our exam, only to have our car stolen.
We'll see a prayer answered, then get bad news from the doctor.
During those times we want to think God has lost His edge, that the enemy found His weakness and we're doomed to lose.
As long as we live on earth, the score will go up and down.
All God promises is that at the final buzzer, all those who believe in Him will win.
It might seem like a close game, but it's not.
No matter how difficult life may have been, a believer in Christ will stand in the winner's circle with Jesus, holding His hand high.
You will win because God is eternally for you!"
From "The 100 Most Encouraging Passages from the Bible."
