Who Can Be Against Us?


December 2021

Recently, our pastor has been teaching through the book of Romans and has really camped in what he calls the “greatest chapter in all the Bible” — Romans 8. If you are depressed, if you’re hurting, if you feel like everything is against you, you need to read and memorize Romans 8. It has verses that talk about if God is really for us, who can be against us? There is no force, no country, no virus, no health issues, or depression issues, that God cannot reach into; because if God is for us — which He is — nothing can be against us.

As I travel and see what's going on with our people here at InFaith, I’m currently seeing a spirit of depression, of loneliness, a spirit that says, “I'm not good enough.” I see that not only in young missionaries, but in some of our senior missionaries as well. People are struggling with their own identity. And what I say to them — and to you, if you’re struggling in this way right now — "If God is for us, who can be against us?”
