I Am ConvincedJanuary 18, 2010
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? … But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For 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. Romans 8:35-39
“Who will separate us from the love of Christ?” is the important question. Paul was convinced, and now it’s crucial that we become convinced that nothing can separate us from God’s love.
Insecurity comes from being unfamiliar with who God really is and what His Word says! Let’s mark the beginning of this year by delving into the Word and getting convinced by the love of God. God absolutely loves you and me. This truth is constantly being assailed by the enemy and by our own misperceptions and distortions. The only way to set right the situation is to turn to the Scripture and rediscover God’s heart concerning His people.
Since then it is by faith that we are justified, let us grasp the fact that we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through Him we have confidently entered into this new relationship of grace, and here we take our stand, in happy certainty of the glorious things He has for us in the future. Romans 5:1-2 Phillips Translation
Let it resonate in your spirit. Pore through the pages of the Bible and get filled with God’s heart concerning His people. It feels good to be forgiven and loved. It’s the best place in the universe!
