For Us

today's reading.
Romans 8:31-39   What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us...

the blog.
"If God is for us, who can be against us?" That's Romans 8:31, the very first verse of our reading today. Now I read our entire passage, but I kept coming back and looking at verse 1. Why? Because it's powerful and when I really thought about it, it pretty much says it all. It tells me that if I'm in alignment with God (in other words, I'm in relationship with Him, taking in and living out His Word) I can overcome. With God for me, I can resist temptation. With God for me, I can recover when I do stumble and sin. With God for me, I can live fully and freely for Him. "If God is for us, who can be against us?"

So what does Romans 8:31 communicate to you? What other promises did you find in Romans 8:31-39, and how will you draw on them going forward? Tami W.
