Topic: Who Can Be Against You? – by Pastor Raphael


Text: Romans 8:31

“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31 (KJV)

Apostle Paul, in his walk with God, came to know one thing that if God is on your side, no one can be against you. Beloved, the life of Apostle Paul is a good motivation to Christians all over the world; he went through hardship, he was stoned, beaten, imprisoned, and shipwrecked (2 Corinthians 11:22–33). In all these hardships and sufferings, he gave glory to God because he knew that God was with him in the midst of all the tribulations.

Dear beloved, if you are a child of God, no one can be against you and succeed. If you are going through challenges, it does not mean God is against you. God is taking you through training and testing of your faith, and you shall come out victorious. No matter how hard the devil and his cohorts of darkness try to mess up your life by using people against you, they will fail because God is on your side, and He is working for your good (Romans 8:28). Beloved, cheer up and continue to rejoice in the Lord because you are on the winning side (Philippians 4:4). Praise the Lord! You are an overcomer!


My dear Father, thank You for Your Word. Indeed, You know how to use challenges and problems to mold me into that great person You want me to be. Please give me more grace and understanding to learn from the challenges and mistakes, in order to mature to handle higher responsibilities in Your Kingdom in Jesus’ name. Amen!
