“If God is for us, who can be against us?” This question is really more of a statement, isn’t it? Although Paul does not write it, it is almost implied that nothing else matters if God is on our side. In eternal terms it is so true. To God it is absolutely true. But in our human terms, it is so hard to believe this absolutely and to live it out continually.
As we are all imperfect, we all fall short of the glory of God at times. OK, often. At times we all knowingly sin. OK, often. In times of hardship, fear, loss, stress, illness, pain… we can lost sight of our foundation and relationship with God or even question Him. We can even become angry or resentful toward God. In our human hearts and minds, we can fail to draw upon the only one who truly matters, our Lord and King.
But then He nudges us. His Spirit stirs in our hearts or His still, small voice whispers in our ear. We remember the words etched in our hearts – “in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loves us”. And we remember that these things are just things – small in comparison to God. He draws near to us as we draw near to Him. And again we know that He is for us!
