"If God is for us who can be against us."
One of the hardest parts of this statement is grasping the truth that God is for us. It is easy to think of the might of an all powerful God who can do what he pleases.
If God is for us he can surely help us at any moment. The difficult part is often accepting that God is for us.
We often doubt his goodness toward us. It is easy in life. Many things go wrong and we cannot clearly see what God is doing.
The issue is often how close we are to everything. We are in the moment and cannot see past today or tomorrow. We cannot see that the suffering today might have some good over the years to come.
Often we doubt God because we cannot see how he can possibly use things for good. We need to live with faith.
Over time we often get some of the answers for why things happened or hints. But often we will never know. If God showed us everything we would not need to live by faith.
We live by faith day by day. When we are weak we are strong. We are strong in our weakness because we rely on God.
When we feel strong we have a tendency to not rely on God. In those moments we are truly weak.
