What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
God is committed to us. He established that in the New Covenant through His Son Jesus. He will never forsake it. When Jesus shed His blood on the cross, it was the ultimate sacrifice for us. It was a signal to the heavenly realm that there is nothing God will not do for us. The apostle Paul underlined this truth: “He who did not spare His own Son, will He not also freely give us all things in Him? (v 32). In other words, we will never lack God’s supply nor provision. We can always have access to His strength and grace to overcome anything the Enemy can throw at us. We can never lose! In Christ then, every believer has the right to proclaim and decree these incredible words of faith in his or her life: “If God is for me, who can be against me?”
I know of a girl who was born normally sighted, but because of wrong medical treatment became blind as a baby. Today she is a singer and song writer. She lives with her parents but is otherwise independent, taking public transport on her own, attending music schools to lecture, and studio to record her albums. But it is her radiance that tells everyone she is a winner. You never hear a complaint. No bitterness or self-pity. Only a deep love for people! And the ability to overcome every hinderance in life.
When David stood before Goliath as a shepherd boy, he carried the same supreme confidence in his heart. “I cannot lose”! If God is for me, then who can be against me? No giant! No sword or spear or shield. Can we trust God to this extent? Why not? It is not dependent on you. It is dependent on God’s covenant with you in Christ! David saw this and ran towards the giant when Goliath charged him on the battlefield. The rest of Israel only saw the Giant and fled! What are you facing down today? It could be illness, cancer, family fractures, financial distress. Stand against all the accusations and lies of the devil and proclaim: “If God is for me, who can be against me?” Believe it. Act on it!
上帝对我们是非常忠诚的。 祂透过自己的儿子 – 耶稣，与我们立下新约。而祂必定不会背弃祂所立下的。当耶稣在十字架撒上祂的宝血，这已经代表了为我们作的最终牺牲。这也意味着从此之后，再也没有任何事上帝是不愿意为我们去做的。使徒保罗亦在圣经里重申了这一点：“神既不爱惜自己的儿子，为我们众人舍了，岂不也把万物和他一同白白的赐给我们么？”(罗马书8：32)。也就是说，我们在上帝给予的供应上都必不致缺乏。我们应当可以毫无阻碍地得到祂给予的力量与恩典去战胜任何恶魔向我们抛来的挑战。我们永远都不会输！那在耶稣基督里，每一位信徒拥有在他们生命中宣示这些充满信心的话语的权利：“上帝若帮助我们，谁能抵挡我们呢？”
