What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
It is very good to be under the protection of those in power. In any country in the world who have the backing of those who exercise authority is confident walking because is covered by the police or military forces in that country. These people can be confident that anyone who tries to harm them will be repelled by force to protect them. But even the most powerful country on Earth does not have the power and authority of God who is Almighty. So if we are with God, we can walk with much more confidence knowing that no one can be against us.
God’s Word says in John 1:12: But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name. I ask you to listen to me or read this message, have you received Jesus Christ? Have you believed in His name? If your answer to both questions is yes, the Scripture says that you have been given the power to become a son of a daughter of God.
Is there any father who does not offer protection to his children? Perhaps you say yes I know several of them and that yours is probably one of those. But what happens is that God is your Father capitalized and never let you down but He always protects you. And now that you know God as your Father will always protect you, it is time to meditate on who He is.
The Bible says in Genesis 1:1: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Let think for a moment in the vastness and perfection of God’s work. The supreme architect of all that exists, He did everything with the power of His Word. For example, Genesis 1:3 says: Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. Do you realize the infinite power of your heavenly Father? He was able to do everything just mouthing the words to succeed.
Now that you know that you are a child of God by receiving Jesus Christ and believing in His name; and also you know the power of your Father, I think you must feel that you can walk through the world with confidence. Remember and make yours the words of Romans 8:31. Say every day when you wake up: “If God is with me, who can be against me?” Heavenly Father is just waiting that you have faith in Him and believe that He can do everything and is on your side.
Well, maybe you who hear or read this message may tell me: “Tony, this all sounds very nice, but I am not sure that God is with me.” If that’s the case, I will repeat what it said John 1:12: But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name. If you’re not sure that God is with you it is because you have not received Jesus Christ and have not believed in His name. So you do not feel part of the family of God. I tell you that today is the day that the Lord invites you to be part of His children. Repent of your past life; believe into your heart in Jesus Christ, who died for your sins on the cross. Surrender your heart to Him and receive Him as Lord and Savior. You will have security of eternal life. God bless you.
