- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
8:31 What shall we say then to these things - Related in the third, fifth, and eighth chapters? As if he had said, We cannot go, think, or wish anything farther. If God be for us - Here follow four periods, one general and three particular. Each begins with glorying in the grace of God, which is followed by a question suitable to it, challenging all opponents to all which, I am persuaded, &c., is a general answer. The general period is, If God be for us, who can be against us? The first particular period, relating to the past time, is, He that spared not his own Son, how shall he not freely give us all things? The second, relating to the present, is, It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? The third, relating to the future, is, It is Christ that died - Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Ro 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? The rest of the chapter is a hymn of triumph over this assurance of salvation. If God [be] for us. What has been shown shows that he is for all who love God. Who [can be] against us? If he is on our side, we must prevail.

Not only is God for us : The whole Chpt.8 has & is taken care of all of our spirit ,soul, & body. Praise God. I have nothing to fear !!! I have nothing to worry about. All I need to do is cast all my care on the Lord and be a doer of His word : Then God will back me. Nothing shall by any means hurt me : The devil & his co-hearts are nothing up beside the Lord God Almighty !!!!

To me, this verse means that if God is on my side (and I know that he is) then there is no person, man, beast or satin who can defeat us. God in us will defeat all! HE gives me the power to be a winner by calling out to HIM.

This verse is so inspiring. If we have God, who is the most powerful Being in the universe, on our side, then what do we have to fear?

I believe that here in Ro.8:31 we are reminded h we war in the spirit, we are informed in the scriptures that if we decree a thin that it shall come to pass. When we are attacked by the enemy we must know what words to say to comb at him and gain the victor in three rounds Christ with the scriptures won. Of course the implication is much more serious, because Satan wanted to cause Jesus to taint himself before Calvery
