Memory Monday – Week 91
Romans 8 might be one of my favorite chapters of the whole bible. There is so much truth and encouragement including a very well known passage, Romans 8:28, that says God works out ALL things for our good. Not just some things, but ALL things. I love that towards the end of chapter 8, just after sharing this, Paul also points out that God is for us. Romans 8:31 says, “If God is for us, who can be against us?”
God isn’t for us in ALL cirumstances, He is only for us when we are in complete harmony with Him. Clearly, if we are disobeying him and living in sin He will not be for us. But, IF God is for us, which He is when we are in His will, then NOTHING can stand against us. No trial, no temptation, no brokenness. Nothing, absolutely nothing, can stop God’s goodness in our lives.
You alone are nothing, but you with God are everything. If you are IN Jesus, then God is for you. Partner up with Him. I promise everything you face will be much better when you allow Him to be on your side! He is for you!
