God Is For You

As a believer in Jesus Christ, you can rest assured that God is for you. "If God is for us, who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31). The answer to that question is obvious. If God is for us, it matters not who else should be against us. God, who rules over all, is for you in Christ. He has forever proven it by giving His Son to die for our sins.

Because God is for you, does not exempt you from trials, temptation, and problems. However, it does mean that no matter what you face in life, God is always for you. Therefore, you can depend upon His grace sufficient for every need. Even when you fail Him, you can confess and repent of your sins, knowing that He will forgive you.

If God is for us, then you can conquer any problem in life. "In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us" (Romans 8:37). Even in the face of death, as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, you are more than a conqueror. Nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:38-39).

It is such a blessing to know for sure that God is for us when we pray. That should relieve your reluctance to ask God for help. Receive fresh love, mercy, and grace from God, when you pray in Jesus name. Don't hesitate to ask Him. Come with boldness and confidence to God's throne of grace, because God is for you.
