Romans 8 vs 31

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

Romans 8:31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is  for us, who can be against us? | New International Version (NIV) | Download  The Bible App Now

  1. What this scripture is saying is that God is the defender.
  2. What this scripture is saying is that God has the final say.
  3. This scripture says that the victory of your adversaries is pyrrhic, temporarily, and only for a time.
  4. What this scripture is saying is that you shall laugh last.
  5. What this scripture is saying is that you learn to trust in God.
  6. The common interpretation of this scripture is that if God is for us, no one can be against us.
  7. This may not be entirely true because Christians still face many persecutions despite God being for them and them being for God.
  8. A deeper meaning is that no matter the persecution of followers of God, it shall end in praise.
  9. Even if such persecutions end in physical death, the Bible urges us not to be afraid of those that can kill the body and not the soul.
  10. About two decades ago, I heard God’s voice clearly say to me: I will fight those who fight you. So in any of my battles, I have the assurance that God is for me.
  11. I have faced some battles in life and often encountered temporary setbacks and defeats. But eventually, God manifests, punishes my offenders and magnifies me.
  12. Anytime anyone fights me unjustly, I usually pity the person because I know I live in a divine covenant of ‘I will fight those who fight you.
  13. I pity the person because I know a divine punishment faces the person, even if the person repents.
  14. Learn how to patiently overcome every trial and tribulation because God will soon show up for you

Prayer

  • Lord of David, fight my battles
