“If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31)
You may have been blessed to hear the scripture, “If God is for us who can be against us?” (Rom. 8:31). I’ve been led to expound with you on this scripture so that faith will be imparted to you in such a way that mountains of problems will literally be removed from your lives. While meditating on God’s promise to be with us, and for us, the Lord showed me an important truth: He is both with us and for us, no matter what! This means the Lord is for us, when the trouble we are in isn’t our fault, and He is with us even when we manufactured the mess in our life. This is good news! It is good news because as humans, sometimes, no matter how much we try to do the right thing… we err. I thank God for His grace!
We can clearly see this unconditional grace in Moses’ life. The Lord showed me that early on in Moses’ life, when he was still an infant, the king of Egypt, where he and his family lived, issued a decree to have every newborn male thrown into the river and killed. Moses’ fit the criteria for the unjust execution. However, God led Moses’ mother to hide Moses and save his life, but eventually she could not hide him anymore. The Lord then led her to have her daughter take Moses, and put him in the same river the king wanted to drown him in. But God was for Moses…and therefore, not even deadly waters could be against him. The Lord protected Moses in the same water that countless other infants were just killed in. Notably, Moses had not done anything to avail himself of the waters he found himself floating in as an innocent infant, but his life was still in peril. More importantly, God protected and provided for Moses.
By contrast, when Moses was an adult he witnessed an evil Egyptian man beating an Israelite, who the Egyptians had enslaved. Moses became very angry. The indignation was clearly a righteous one. The holy indignation was not the problem for Moses; however, Moses taking the matter into his own hands proved to be trouble indeed. Moses murdered the Egyptian. Soon after, someone found out that Moses killed that man, and thus Moses ran out of Egypt and fled into the desert as a felon. But God was for Moses even while he was considered a fleeing felon running from the law. It was in the desert that God revealed Himself to Moses, revealed to Moses his purpose and destiny and gave Moses a wife and children! It is written, and it is true, “But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more” (Romans 5:20). The best thing God can do for us is to reveal Himself to us… draw us to Himself. God did that for Moses at the most undeserving time of his life! Oh, the love of our God…unconditional indeed. God was for Moses when he was innocent and when he was guilty. God is the same and never changes and God is not a respecter of persons (Hebrews 13:8 & Acts 10:34). This means that our loving God is for us, whether trouble was brought into our life, or we ourselves caused the trouble. Either way we know and can declare with confidence: God is for us: No matter what!
“If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself” (2 Timothy 2:13)
