Do you believe in life after death? Questions? Ask us.
Join us for our Daily Devotional Chat today in our Women’s Chatroom at 10:30 am EDT.
Are you facing trouble or hardship or persecution? Is conflict in your marriage, a loss of a job or illness weighing you down? Has your family disowned you or your friend deserted you? Are you experiencing a famine of food or a famine of hope? Is there danger or death gathering on the horizon?
Then let me remind you that:
• God chose you. (Romans 8:29-30)
• God is your powerful ally. (Romans 8:31)
• God gave up His Son for you, so He will look after you. (Romans 8:32)
• Nothing can separate you from God’s love. (Romans 8:39)
We can be confident of these truths because, “Jesus Christ, who died – more than that, who was raised to life – is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us” (Romans 8:34).
Can death separate us from God’s love?
No. Through Jesus we have the promise of eternal life. (John 3:16)
Can life isolate us from God’s love?
No. God has promised to be with us always. (Matthew 28:20)
Can angels or demons keep us from God’s love?
No. Though there are spiritual forces at work in our world, God is greater than them all. (Matthew 10:28)
Can present troubles or future fears cut us off from God’s love?
No. God is the great “I AM”; the God who is and was and is to come. (Rev 1:8)
Can any powers that man or Satan exert over us defeat God’s love?
No. The One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world (1 John 4:4)
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:37-39).
Thank you Holy God that because of Jesus, nothing can separate me from Your love. Amen.
Questions: What is your best reminder of God’s love for you? How can you encourage others to be confident in God’s love?
