Verse Of The Day : … If God be for us, who can be against us? Romans 8 : 31
LISTEN : Do you have God on your side? Do you acknowledge His role in overcoming the battles of your life? Do you know that when God is on your side, nothing can abuse or subdue you? (Psalms 37 : 32 , 33). Truly, God’s presence in a person’s life is a refuge and fortress against forces of opposition. However, God cannot side with you if you are not ready to side with Him. He cannot waste His time on anyone who is blinded to His power and authority over everything. He cannot fight your battle if you believe you have all it takes to fight alone. Woe is that person who thinks he or she has no need of God. But blessed is he who understands he is vulnerable, empty and defeated without God. Beloved, when you have God on your side, enemies will lose the control over your life. When you have God on your side, even the most powerful will suddenly become powerless and helpless in your presence. God on your side is a big blow to the kingdom of darkness. When God is on your side, the mighty could be defeated and humiliated with ease. David’s victory over Goliath is an ample example of God on the side of a man. Beloved, I know you may be asking now, “What will I do to have God on my side?” It is simple. Firstly, confess your sins to God and accept His Son Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Secondly, follow His instructions, worship and obey Him sincerely. Thirdly, determine to be a faithful servant to Him; and fourthly, be consistent in your relationship with God and never give up no matter what. If you can follow this recommendations, believe me, you will soon discover that your enemies have made themselves God’s enemies too. (Proverbs 16 : 7). Then God can fight your battles and you will hold your peace. (Exodus 14 : 14).
