If God is for us

Romans 8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?

Many people speculate that God is a God of anger or indifference.  Either He is always trying to smite us or that he just does not care, but nothing further from the truth could exist.

God is sometimes angry, yes...but that is because we refuse to listen to His good advice and follow His ways.  We reject him at every opportunity we have...who wouldn't be angry with that kind of attitude?  He IS for us and he wants the best for us...sometimes he just needs to slap us upside the head.

He is not indifferent either. Sometimes people think that he just sits back and laughs at how we struggle. A simple look at Scripture will blow this notion out of the water.  God is involved with human history throughout the Bible and we see Him working in today's world as well. Look around! Listen up!

John 16:33

These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world. --Jesus

Blessings All!
