"IF GOD IS FOR US" (
My Brothers and Sisters, God is for us, not against us. He has reconciled us. He is not our enemy but our friend. He is on our side against all our enemies; on our side in reference to all our undertakings (Ps. 37:4). Who is He but the Almighty, the Sovereign Lord, the infinitely powerful One with infinite wisdom to guide.
Let me tell you, if God is for you, he's more than what anyo
ne can do against you. One of these days you're going to learn as I have learned, not just to thank God for your successes; not just to thank God for your victories; not just to thank God for your popularity; not just to thank God because the church is full and your plates are running over. But, one of these days you're going to learn how to thank God the burdens you had to bare because they were teachable moments. Thank God for your trials because they were teachable moments. Thank God for your troubles because they were teachable moments. That God for the storms he's brought you through because they were teachable moments.
If God is for you, nobody can be against you. When your enemies turn against you and become your emissaries, they will make you more famous than you would have been if you didn't have somebody talking about you and making you famous. Because when your enemies try to tear you down, God will build you up through your enemies' unpaid advertisement. For while some are hating on you, God will send somebody to help on you!
