A powerful promise from God

There are many wonderful and beautiful promises in the Word of God. It is amazing to see how much goodness and love the Lord packed in His Word and all of it is for us. His promise to never leave us nor forsake us is for you and me. His promise to supply our needs is for you and me. His promise to surround us and protect us is for you and me. His promise to open the seas and make us walk on dry land when we are faced with troubled waters is for you and me. His promise to love us unconditionally is for you and me. There is a promise I have been standing on for decades. It is found in Romans 8:38-39. Paul wrote it. It says, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, 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.” Nothing, absolutely nothing can separate us from the love of God. I want you to meditate on those verses and to develop trust and faith in that message. It is an incredible message of love that will carry you through the worst times of your life. It is a message that will give you hope when all seems lost. It is a promise of the Lord that He can’t break.

We ought to be like Paul and declare that we are convinced that nothing can separate us from God’s love. Conviction comes from the Holy Spirit. Conviction here is a fruit of faith. We gain this blessed assurance when we are in faith. We can’t be swayed in other directions. We stay strong in the direction of that truth. We know beyond a doubt that nothing can separate us from God and His love. In order to have more faith in that truth, we should spend time praying over it and we should keep it in front of us as much as possible. Remember that faith comes from hearing and hearing from the Word of God. You will have more faith in this message if you keep hearing it and you keep seeing it. Think about what it implies for your life, for your current situation, for things to come and for what you can expect. You can expect that nothing in this world is strong enough to remove God’s love from your life. Nothing has the power to make God love you less. His everlasting love is a stronghold. It is a fortress of hope where you can find refuge. Trust that there is a love that is above anything and anyone in this world and it is directed to you!

Trials and tribulations will come your way and they will try to derail you and to harm your faith. Now, all of those trials and tribulations can seem very bad and they can make you think that nothing can save you from their wrath. Note that “they make you think.” They tell you lies that start in your mind and the number one lie is that nothing can save you or help you. Don’t fall for that lie no matter how bad your circumstances are. Push the lies away from your mind with the truth that nothing can separate you from God’s love. God’s love will save the day. God’s love will heal your situation, terminate the trials and tribulations and give you freedom. Nothing is impossible to God’s love. His love is why salvation exists. His love is what conquered death. If His love can defeat death, it can definitely defeat the things that are trying to destroy you today. Keep your hopes up. Keep your hope in Jesus. Remind yourself every single day that nothing can separate you from God’s love. God’s got you and He will always take care of you. Stay encouraged! May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
