“What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us?”
Romans 8:31 (NRSV)
Prodigal Thoughts: In this passage, vs 28 says, “We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.” The apostle Paul is writing to the church in Rome and trying to unify the church (both Jewish Christians and Gentiles). That brings up a question. Who is called to God’s purposes? All of humankind. He created us all and Jesus died for all with the hope that we would choose Him back. To me, this creates an abundance of hope because even while we were sinners, Jesus died for our sins. God is truly for us.
Prayer for today: I pray that we would find our hope and our identity in Him who has created us in His own image. That we would daily choose to serve God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength. I pray that we would be able to see the good that God has done in and through us and that we would boldly share with others those things He has done.
If you need prayer, please reply and I will pray for you. If you would like to talk about this verse or have questions, I’m always open for your feedback.
God is for you and is with you…
