Unshakeable Love of God
May 13, 2021
Romans 8:31 (KJV)
31 “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”
I have spent the last 38 and a half years pursuing the plan of God for my life. I’ve been in some pretty serious confrontations along the way, but I can honestly say that the unshakable love of God has always been there for me.
In this scripture it starts out saying, “What, then, shall we say in response to these things?” So we obviously must look at what Paul is talking about when he states “these things” before giving his response to it.
The Message states it this way:
"So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose?"
Take some time to go back and read in Romans 6 and 7. We see a person attacked in his character and see how he conducted, or maneuvered, through it, feeling pretty lost in his confidence in himself but came out victorious. At the time, the early Christians were being falsely accused for the destruction coming upon Rome.
Following this scripture out by keeping it in context of what Paul is saying, we should be able to see that God's plan for us, even though it can get rough at times, has not left us defenseless.
Thank You, Father, for giving us the Holy Spirit as our defense against condemnation that tries to destroy us. Thank You for Your Word revealing to us that your love toward us is unshakeable. You have said in Your Word that nothing shall be able to separate us from Your love, and we stand on Your Word. In Jesus's name we pray, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
