Who Can Be Against Us – February 24, 2024

If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
Romans 8:31,32

One of my favorite television shows of all time is Cheers. It was produced in the 1980s and 90s, but you can still watch reruns of it today. The setting for this comedy was a pub in Boston. My favorite character on Cheers was a man named Norm. Norm’s funny lines have become known as “Normisms.”

In one episode, Norm walks into the pub, and he is obviously having a really bad day. When he is asked how he is doing, he waves his hand in disgust and quips, “It’s a dog-eat-dog world, and I am wearing milk bone underwear.”

The truth is, we can all relate to Norm, can’t we? Some days, it seems like our lives are dog-eat-dog, and we are wearing milk bone underwear.

We might wonder, “God if you are loving, why do bad things happen to me? Are you out to get me? Are you punishing me for something I have done?”

My friend, God isn’t out to get you. Don’t think he is throwing darts at you from heaven. God is for you one hundred percent! He gave his Son for you and laid him in a manger on that first Christmas. He had his Son nailed to the cross on Good Friday so that every single one of your sins might be fully paid for by his holy, precious blood! You are forgiven—completely and fully.

Because God is for you, he won’t ever let you down. He will lead you through this dog-eat-dog world. Nothing can separate you from his love. He will provide strength to handle every trial and challenge. Don’t be afraid.

Lord Jesus, when I face trials and tribulations in this life, comfort me with the reminder that with you on my side, nothing can truly harm me. Amen.
