Romans 8:38- 39 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, neither angels nor principalities nor powers, neither things present nor things to come, 39 neither height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
These powerful and profound words of the Apostle Paul expresses the strong persuasion and full assurance of the faith he had in God through Christ.
The Apostle Paul declares in this text that regardless of what he has suffer, what he may be suffering or what he may suffer in the future, he is convinced that God is with him and He is never separated from God's love.
Paul listed some of the circumstances of life that may appear to make us believe that God is not with us, but, even in them, we must believe and know without wavering in our faith, that God is forever with His people.
Trouble is common and very common among the people of God, but even in the midst of them we have no need to fear for God is with us.
People of God, regardless of what we face as we go through life, nothing we face is able to come between us and the love of God.
God's love for His people is unstoppable! This is one of the greatest motivation that should cause every child of God to continue on in the Lord's work with absolute assurance of His love and protection now and in eternity.
People of God, keep this in mind;just because you are a child of God does not mean we won't suffer. We will suffer but we are not alone in them.
We are reminded in scripture that the people of God will suffer. Let's listen to 2 Timothy 3:12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
The love that Paul says that causes us to never be separated from God is in Christ Jesus. Are you in a relationship with God thorough Christ Jesus? Is He your Lord? Well, if you answered yes this assurance and promise is yours personally.
If you are not connected to God through Christ and He is not in you, it's not too late for you if you still have breath in your body. Yes, if you are still alive the promises of God can personally become yours also starting right now.
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
People of God, we have a blessed assurance on today of God's ever presence love for us in Christ in ALL of life's affairs.
