If God Is For Us
"Take counsel together, but it will come to nothing; speak the word, but it will not stand, for God is with us.” Isaiah 8:10 NKJV
God is your greatest assurance of safety and protection. You can hire and surround yourself with the best security personnel in the world; you can acquire the best security doors and gadgets; but unless the Lord is with you all your efforts are in vain.
But God is with us! Hallelujah! Jeremiah 20:11 says, "But the Lord is with me as a mighty, awesome One. Therefore my persecutors will stumble, and will not prevail. They will be greatly ashamed, for they will not prosper. Their everlasting confusion will never be forgotten." Amen!
Never be afraid of threats. When you hear that people are talking about you, ganging up against you, and plotting to pull you down or to stop your momentum, do not be afraid. Romans 8:31 says, "What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?" No one! They may try, but they are bound to fail. Amen.
