GOd Is for You
I am a big Lakers fan. I am also a big fan of a local college basketball team. I believe everyone that follows sports are a fan of some team. Guess what God is also a fan. He is for you. I know God is for you. Now God is never for sin in our lives but he is for us. You might be asking Billy how do you know that? Lets take a look at Romans 8:31-39. which says ....
31What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36As it is written:
"For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered."[a] 37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Now first off important to note what this doesn't say. It doesn't say children of God will never have things and people who are against them. It says it doesn't matter. If you know Jesus you can face anything.
Now back to the question how do I know God is for you.
Lets look at vs. 32 God sent his son down here. God could have sent us something else but he sent his own son to prove his love for us.
Now lets look at vs. 34. Do you ever feel like no one is praying for you. Well when you feel like that please know Jesus is praying for you.
Well those are some of the reasons I know God is for us based on the above verses.
