What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? (Romans 8:31 NRSV)
It is interesting how often the name of God slips out on the lips of even those officially committed to atheism. TIME magazine reported how former Prime Minister Gorbachev of the Soviet Union was forced to edit his own remarks when he visited the U.N. several years ago. Before he spoke to the General Assembly, Gorbachev met with U.N. Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar. When Perez de Cuellar thanked Gorbachev for the Soviets' recent support for U.N. peacekeeping efforts, Gorbachev answered, "God is on your side at the United Nations." After a short pause, he rephrased his statement in a more orthodox Marxist fashion: "The objective trends of what is happening in history are on your side," he said. We cannot be surprised at the Soviet Premier's verbal slip.
Remember that God is on your side!
Dear God, sometimes there are doubts, but deep in my heart I know you are truly on my side. Thank you. Amen
