God Is On Our Side

Read: Romans 8:28-39
In the Broadway musical Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Aaron Burr sing these words: “It must be nice to have Washington on your side.” They are referring to how Alexander Hamilton’s relationship with George Washington advanced his career and his political clout. Washington was arguably the most beloved and important of the Founding Fathers and his backing would have been invaluable.
As believers, we have someone even more important than George Washington on our side!! God, the creator of the universe is on our side and when we accept Jesus as our Savior, Jesus is on our side!! Romans 8:31 says, “If God is for us, who can be against us?” We can feel confident that whatever happens in our life, God will be there for us; he will be on our side!! Romans goes on to say that Jesus is at the right hand of God interceding for us. Jesus is on our side!! He is an advocate for us pleading our case in heaven.
When hard things come your way or when you feel God is far away from you, remember the words of Romans 8:38-39. It says, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” God will never leave you or forsake you!! You can gratefully sing, “It is so nice to have God on my side!!”
Make It Personal
Anytime you are feeling abandoned or forsaken remember the words of Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you or forsake you. God is on your side!!
