"'If' Is Not The Question"

"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:31
"If God is for us". At first glance one might think that the word "if" implies that there is a chance that God may not be for us. It may come across that this is a question that ask if God is for us. That is not the case here. The question here is actually-- "who can be against us?" Who can be against us "if" God is for us. It is more of a condition. If/when God is for us, who can be against us. 
Take the "if" out of your vocabulary this morning in the sense that you are wondering "if" He is for you. Are you His child? Have you been bought with the blood of His Son Jesus? Have you accepted Him as Savior and surrendered to Him as Lord? Are you following Him? Are you living your life for Him? Then there is no question about it. He is for you. He is on your side. He is with you. He is fighting your battles. He is interceding for you. He is working all things together for your good. 
Don't let the "things" of this life make you question or doubt that He is for you. Don't let fear make you doubt. Don't let pain make you doubt. Don't let the sickness you are suffering cause you to doubt. Don't let the trial you are going through make you doubt. Don't listen to the accuser of the brethren and allow his words to make you doubt. Don't let the persecution that you are facing make you doubt. Don't let the hard times, the difficulties, the problems or the storm make you doubt. Don't let anything make you doubt that He is for you. 
Have a great day. When you are facing difficulties it is easy to doubt that God is for you, but don't doubt it. "If" He is for you is the wrong question... He is for you.
