Romans 8:31-32 (KJV)
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Tracy’s husband’s family hated her, and they made this very clear to her months after their wedding. They told her she was the reason their son was no longer loyal to the family.
After their wedding, Benjamin became more committed to the Lord because of Tracy’s influence. He was from a pagan family that took pride in their idolatrous practices. But since his marriage, Benjamin stopped giving them money for such practices because his sanctification to the Lord meant he had to consciously cut off from all idolatry whether knowingly or unknowingly. He now gave his parents more money for their upkeep, but no more money for their rituals. Because of this, his relatives knew they could no longer control him.
Benjamin accepted the Lord when he was in secondary school. He was a leader on campus fellowship in the university, that was when he made it clear that he was no longer going to be participating in the family rituals. But unknown to him, he still participated by proxy because he would give his relatives money to participate [on his behalf]. By giving them money for the rituals, he didn’t know that he was giving certain demons license to operate in his life. This was why his spiritual life as a bachelor was a terrible struggle. But this all ended after he got married to Tracy and they both became more dedicated to the Lord.
Tracy did not know the kind of deep darkness in her husband’s family until after she married him and he became more dedicated to the Lord. Strange battles began against her and the family. There was a night her husband’s grandmother literally appeared in their bedroom to threaten Tracy. That was when they realized that the traditional sculpture in their bedroom was demonic, and they got rid of it and all others.
Tracy was told several times in her dream that she would die and her husband would marry another girl. She was afflicted during her first pregnancy and almost lost it, but the Lord gave them perpetual Victory. She and her husband entered their victory through the revelation in today’s scripture (Romans 8:31-32). This was when they realized that God would do anything to protect them. They stopped being afraid and on the defensive, but started being on the offensive spiritually. Many of their family members eventually came to know the Lord because of them.
If God did not spare His only begotten son for our sakes, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
Go into today knowing that God is on your side. If by faith, you live under the authority of Christ Jesus, you are more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37). There are much more angels than there are demons, and they are all on your side.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me rest in the truth that you are eternally on my side. Thank you Father, in Jesus name. Amen.
