What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
We are used to ifs.
If it rains, we won’t have softball practice.
If I don’t study, I’ll fail the class.
If I get that new job, I can pay off my car.
If I can forego sweets, I can get into that dress.
With “if” there is an element of uncertainty.
Often, there is a feeling the outcome rests with me.
Sometimes, that can seep into God’s promises.
We read “if” and unconsciously doubt is triggered.
Is God really for me? What do I have to do to ensure He is for me?
It’s not that kind of “if.”
It’s a logical, argument-building “if.”
If two and two equal four … (And it does.)
If the sun rises in the east … (And it does.)
If God is for us … (And He most certainly is.)
Then who can be against us?
(I think you know the answer.)
