Job said God’s strong hand had opposed itself against him.
God says Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
Have you ever thought that God was against you? I find it interesting that so many times life’s circumstances can make it seem or feel as though he has as turned against His own. I am not going to lie and say this is easy to overcome. Hardships, heartache, and tragedy can cause us to feel as though God has opposed us rather than worked on our behalf. I find it difficult to be right in the middle of where God wants me to be, and it seems like life gets more and more difficult. We have to constantly remember and believe that how we feel does not align to what God says.
Regardless of how it seems, we have a promise from God that he is not against us. He actually declares that there is nothing that can stand against those that are secure in the hand of God. God is not only on our side, but He is fighting for us. God is not against us dear Christian! God is for us! He is not opposing his strong arm against us. His strong arm is available for us to lean upon while we are weak. Maybe the difficulty of life is allowed to get us to a point where we learn to lean upon the very arm that is believed to be against us.
Please consider the verse. Go against what you are feeling and trust the fact that God is on your side. He is here for us to cast our care upon. He is our strong arm, our refuge, and shelter. He is never leaves nor forsakes. God is good and His mercy endures forever. He is on our side!
