If I am for you, who can be against you? Beloved, I most assuredly am for you since you are My follower. Of course, this doesn’t mean that no one will ever oppose you. It means that having Me on your side is the most important fact of your existence. Regardless of what happens in your life, you are on the winning side! I already won the victory through My death and resurrection. I am the eternal Victor, and you share in My triumph, no matter how much adversity you encounter on your journey to heaven. Ultimately, nothing and no one can prevail against you because you belong to Me forever.
Knowing that your future is utterly secure can change your perspective dramatically. Instead of living in defensive mode, trying desperately to protect yourself from suffering, you learn to follow Me boldly, wherever I lead. I am training you not only to seek My Face and follow My lead but to enjoy this adventure of abandoning yourself to Me. Remember: I am your ever-present Help in trouble.
What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?
~ Romans 8:31
When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”
~ Psalm 27:8 [NKJV]
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
~ Psalm 46:1
