With the Lord on Our Side—despite Our Weaknesses—No One Can Prevail against Us

Romans 8:31

31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland said:

“Christ and His angels and His prophets forever labor to buoy up our spirits, steady our nerves, calm our hearts, send us forth with renewed strength and resolute hope. They wish all to know that ‘if God be for us, who can be against us?’ [Romans 8:31]. In the world we shall have tribulation, but we are to be of good cheer. Christ has overcome the world [see John 16:33]. Through His suffering and His obedience He has earned and rightly bears the crown of ‘Prince of Peace.’”
