If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31.
This is a Scripture that many have been encouraged with. The idea being that with God beside you, all things are possible. Jesus is even quoted in both Mark and Matthew saying that.”With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” (Mark 10:27 and Matthew 19:26)
I’ll be honest and admit that I have felt that God was and is on my side. I can admit that there is comfort and assurance with that. However, I have seen the personal downside of feeling very pious and self-righteous with that. I have felt that me with God is better than you without God. I have said in blunt and subtle ways that if you were like me and had God, you would be better. And history has also shown many examples of people using God as permission to do things to those who are not with God.
So my question is do you feel God is actually on a side? Why or Why not?
