whom shall we fear

(Octavius Winslow, “Morning Thoughts”)

If God is for us, who can be against us?
Romans 8:31.

With such a Father, such a Friend, and such a
Comforter, who can wage a successful hostility
against the children of God? Whom shall we fear?

God Himself cannot be against us, even when the
clouds of His providence appear the most lowering.

The law cannot be against us; for the Law-fulfiller has,
by His obedience, magnified and made it honorable.

Divine justice cannot be against us; for Jesus has,
in our stead, met its demands, and His resurrection
is a full discharge of all its claims.

Nor sin,
nor the ungodly,
or suffering,
nor death,
can be really or successfully against us, since . . .
the condemnation of sin is removed,
and Satan is vanquished,
the ungodly are restrained,
and suffering works for good,
the sting of death is taken away.


If God is for us, who can be against us?

With such a Being on our side, whom shall we fear?

Has He ever been a wilderness to you, a land ofWhom shall we fear
darkness? Has He, in any instance, been unkind,
unfriendly, unfaithful? Never!

All His love,
His grace,
all His perfections,
and His heaven of glory is for you!

Trembling Christian! God is on your side!

If God is for us, who can be against us?

Something to ponder:
“Dear friend, make God your Confidant. Carry to Him all your needs, disclose to Him all your sorrows, confide to Him all your secrets, confess to Him all your sins. He will do all, soothe all, supply all, and pardon all–for who is a God like Him? He cares for you, His loving heart is towards you, His un-slumbering eye is upon you! Oh, how condescendingly kind and gentle is Jesus to poor sinners who feel their need of Him, and are conscious that they can do nothing without Him! You will always meet with a kind welcome from Jesus, come when you may and how you will.” Mary Winslow
