Romans 8:31, 37 NIV 2011
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
One commentator wrote, “Paul was trying to draw his audience into the discussion.” He was giving a message similar to OT writers. Isaiah 41:10, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Psalm 118:6, “The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” God was with them and with Him they would be victorious. 1 Corinthians 15:57, “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” We’re more than conquerors through faith in Christ.
“God Is for Me” is a favorite from Maker Fun Factory VBS 2017. Our church Children’s Ministry Coordinator asked me to lead the music portion. Older students daily would help as well. I was thrilled and knew this was the perfect way to serve the church that summer. I walked with the music in my ears and the signs in my head. The children loved the songs as we opened and closed each days session with some boldly joining us on stage. If God is for us, who can be against us!
What will we conquer today?
