Romans 8:31 says,
“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?”
When we are having a hard time with a difficult person, we can sometimes say, “If they were not here things would be better!”
The scripture says if God is for us who can be against us, even if it looks like this person is against you it is ultimately God who has it under control and has even placed that person in your life. He uses other people to help bring you to a deeper walk of faith, just like He uses you in another person’s life to build their faith. Be careful what you say or you might be found fighting against God’s best for you.
Father, help us to see that not everything adverse is really against us. Give us insight into your truth. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen
