“What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31)

This is something we all should know. When God is on your side nothing can stop you achieving your purpose and destiny.

Sometimes we don’t like God doing His best for us because we don’t always see how circumstances and situations we go through are refining us or best for us. We want to be victorious in everything we do, but the verse doesn’t guarantee victory in every situation. It isn’t a blanket statement.

IF God is for us, who can stand against us.

It reminds me of two verses in Proverbs, “Commit to the Lord your plans and they will succeed”, and “A man makes plans but the Lord determines the steps”.

Let’s make sure we are doing things His way. Let’s make sure we follow His purposes and then He will take care of the opposition and difficulty we face.

This verse links beautifully with which is also a conditional promise.

Be assured today that despite what we see around us, if we work for His purpose . . . ALL things work together for good (Romans 8:28).
