Romans 8:37-39 – “But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” NASU
Sometimes we read something in the Bible that so resonates in our spirit that we can’t keep from thinking about it for days. This is one such passage for me. It seems that each time I come to it I spend the next few days thinking of little else beyond the Incredible Unconditional Love of God and the mind-boggling patience and sacrifice He was willing to extend to mankind so that we could be restored to a relationship with Him and escape the torments of the kingdom of darkness.
I love Paul’s definitive optimism that No Matter What – “we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.” Then he proceeds to make the foundation granite and sure pounding this truth into the bedrock of our hearts saying, “I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the Love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” HALLELUJAH! What a promise and declaration! What a truth! What an anchor to ground our lives! We have the promise of GOD’S INSEPARABLE LOVE!
There is no devil in hell, no situation, no person, no government, no economic crisis, no health crisis, no relational crisis – – Nothing, absolutely Nothing can come between us and God’s Love! We may turn on that love and walk from it but God Will Go On Loving Us Without Fail! Nothing can change that! In that reality I live my life and find solace when things are dark. In that, I live my life and find comfort when the storm winds blow. In that, I live my life and find the strength to “repent” and “return” anytime I find myself straying from the path He has chosen. I know that I am accepted in the beloved and that His Love is Without End!
Never allow yourself to think that you are worthless, without value, or unloved because you are loved by Love Himself! You are loved by the Love that breaks all barriers, shreds all bonds and chains, and brings hope, comfort, and joy to the soul. We have God’s Inseparable and Unconditional Love!
May God’s love cover you like a glove as you go through your day!
