Is God on your side

We like to think that what we do has God’s blessing and support. In the many wars that have occurred both sides of enemies expect God to be on their side. Should we be in a personal argument, we tell ourselves that we are right because God is with us.

It is easy to misconstrue Scriptures. It is easy to make assumptions that just because we are believers God supports what we are doing. The end of Jeremiah’s life occurred because he was kidnapped by people who insisted that God was on their side.

The truth is that we should ask ourselves not if God is on our side but if we are on God’s side. We do represent him to the world. He speaks to the world through believers. However, a closer look at Scriptures will tell us that it is presumptuous to think that God is on our side. It is better for us to live such a life that God wants to use us when we are on his side.

Even though we may have our own agendas, God’s agenda is more important. What God thinks, what God intends, or how God exercises his will in our life is far better. We should seek to conform to the spiritual realities. It is a privilege and an honor to conform to God’s Word and will. When we are about to make decisions, it is far better to ask ourselves about God’s intention and how we may conform to it.

Jesus explained the situation by saying, “I am the vine, you are the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)
