We belong to God as he has adopted us into his family and we are is precious children. God protects his children and defends those who call on his name. God will not stand by and allow the persecution of his people. If God is for us, then who can be against us (Romans 8:31)?
There are seasons of testing, trial and persecution as we share in the inheritance of God. “and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him” (Romans 8:17). Our suffering is for righteousness sake and God will not allow us to be tempted beyond our ability. God does not cause temptation or test but he causes anything that the enemy brings against us to work out for our good.
There are seasons when we feel despondent, but Jesus told his disciples that the gates of hell cannot prevail against his church (Matthew 16:18). We represent the church and we acknowledge that the enemy will try to target us. The promise is that the weapons will be formed but they will not prosper against us (Isaiah 54:17).
Remember the next time that someone comes up against you, that they are coming against God. God is mighty to save, protect and defend those who are his children. When God provides you with a job, anyone who threatens that job, threatens what God has established. God will not allow anyone to interfere with the marriage that he has joint together. Our bodies are his temple and he has promised not to put any of the diseases of the enemy upon those who serve him. When God is fighting for you, then no one will come against you and prevail.
“What do you plot against the Lord? He will make a complete end; trouble will not rise up a second time” (Nahum 1:9).
