We, like Paul, know what it is to have people and things come against us. We know times when we were “under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life.” (2 Corinthians 1:9) We have been “hard pressed on every side, perplexed, persecuted and struck down” (2 Corinthians 4:8). How do we respond? How do we continue?
“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8 v 31-32)
We have nothing to fear. Victory is on our side.
The hardest thing that God has ever done was the giving up of His Son for us all, to die on the cross for our sin. If you understand what it meant for God to bring salvation to this world then you will see that God has achieved the greatest thing. If God has removed the power of sin and death over your life then why today of all days (Good Friday) are you worrying over whatever is against you. God is with you. He has crossed over to your side and is on your side! God is with you and He is able and He will graciously give you all things to get through all things. He is on your side.
