31 What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?
Romans 8:31 (NLT)
This is one of the most powerful verses in the Bible. If God is for us, who can ever be against us? This is not an innocent question. This is a daring question. This is the type of question we should ask to dare our enemies because we know they are no match for us. Anyone who dares to come against us, is against God.
Let us study deeper into the verse. The above verse consists of 2 questions. The first question is: What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? The “wonderful things” refers to the promises of God in the earlier verses which I have written on in the previous articles. God has promised that he is always on our side in helping us to overcome every challenge we face. He has made us his children with Jesus as the firstborn. Jesus is no longer God’s only begotten Son. He is now God’s firstborn with many brothers and sisters. You and I are among them. God wants us to have a glorious future. How are we going to respond to all these wonderful things? The answer is in the next question.
If God is for us, who can ever be against us?
How does the above sounds to you? It sounds to me like someone daring anyone for a fight. I believe this question is meant to give us confidence to go through life challenges. Despite the question mark at the end, this is not a question. This is a statement of confidence and this confidence is inspired by the writer’s faith in the reliability of God.
How do you respond when faced with challenges in life? Do you face them alone or do you involve God in your fight? You decision on whether to involve God makes a difference between victory and defeat. Let me give you some examples.
You may be very poor now. You may be burdened with a mountain of debts. You tried every way you know to get out of this situation but there is none available. Whichever direction you turn to, you cannot find hope for your situation. What are you going to do? Religious people will tell you that it is alright to be poor because God can still use you when you are poor as long as your doctrines are right. How do you know whether your doctrines are right? The answer is simple. As long as you follow everything they say, your doctrines are right. If you ever dare to oppose them, they will condemn you to hell.
What do you think will happen if you are to believe in their lies? The answer is nothing. Your situation will not change. You will still be poor and debt ridden. This is why, if you truly want improve your life, you will need to turn to God and stay away from religion. God has not just promised prosperity for you. He had even sent Jesus to die poor at the Cross for you to live rich. How then can you be poor and debt ridden?
Now that you know that you have the right to be rich, it is time for you take back everything that is rightfully yours. Ask yourself the question: If God is for me, who can ever be against me? It does not matter whether it is Satan or his religious people who wants to make you poor. It does not matter how hard they tried. The bottom line is, if they are against you, they are against God. They cannot defeat you without defeating God first. In other words, you are destined to win. Start reading the Bible, listening to faith messages and fill your mind with positive thoughts. You need to build strong faith to fight big battles. Fighting big battles will result in big victories, which will lead to huge war spoils and war reparations.
Poverty and debts have no place in your life. As long as you commit yourself to the rights God has given to you, you are going to win. No matter how impossible the situation around you appears to be, you are going to defeat your poverty and receive your prosperity. Wealth and riches are yours in Jesus’ name. The only way you can fail is to give up before you receive your prosperity. So, what is your choice today?
Here is another one. You may be very sick now. All the doctors you have met told you that there is no cure for your disease. You are going to be in this condition until you die. If you ask the religious people, they will tell you that this is God’s will for you. God is making you sick for his glory. God is glorified when he sees people suffering in sickness. Maybe he gets high from enjoying the sight of people suffering. This is basically religious people’s impression of God. If you are to believe in such perversion, I can tell you for sure, your condition will never improve. Your incurable disease will remain incurable. Is there an alternative to this? The answer is yes. You can turn to God.
At the Cross, Jesus took all away all our sicknesses and diseases. By his stripes we are healed. Living in health is our right bought by Jesus at the Cross. That incurable disease has no right to come to you. Start building up your faith. Read the Bible, listen to faith messages, confess your right to good health, fill your heath with joy and do everything you can to overcome that disease. It does not matter how incurable it is. Just remember that you have what it takes to overcome it and get rid of it. If those religious people tell you that the disease is a blessing from God, just tell them that you are going to transfer this “blessing” to them. Then look at their hypocritical faces and have a good laugh.
In conclusion, we are called to battle and destined to win. It does not matter what challenges you are facing right now. It does not matter how impossible the situation appears to be. It does not matter how weak and incapable you think you are. The only thing that matters is God is on your side and he will fight this battle for you. If God is for us, who can ever be against us?
