No Separation from God’s Love

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.

  • Romans 8:38-39

“The Apostle Paul went through horrendous experiences when serving Christ, and he wrote today’s verse, [Romans 8:38-39], with conviction. What can separate you from the love of God in Christ Jesus the Lord? Not death. Everyone dies, and the ones who believe in Jesus have eternal life (John 3:16). Not life. Life can be a complicated mess. It can be scary. But Jesus said, “Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Not angels. Angels are powerful creatures. But even if they wanted to, they do not have the power to separate you from the love of God. Not demons. Resist them and they flee (James 4:7).
“Not things present. Today in 2020 things are getting scary. But anything that’s going on right now, no matter how terrible or confusing, it cannot separate you from the love of God. Not things to come. When reading Revelation dealing with some of the horrible things that will happen, know that even they cannot separate you from the love of God.
“Not powers. Worldly governments may make your beliefs illegal. They may persecute you and withhold jobs. They may rise up and throw you in jail or even have you executed, but they can’t separate you from the love of God. Not height. Not depth. No matter how high or low you go, God is there.  Not anything in creation. Absolutely nothing in the universe can separate you from the love of God. So run to Him, bringing all your cares, … and He will receive you with open arms.”

  • Presidential Prayer Team Devotion

The devotion says it well in expanding upon the words of the Apostle Paul from these verses of Romans 8.  And especially a disease cannot separate us from the love of God.  And when we focus on God’s Love, our quarantine can bring us closer to God.

If people are expecting more from me today, I apologize, but the words that I feel about my Joy, my Comfort, and my Confidence have been said throughout this ordeal.

Nothing can separate us from the love of God, however this present trial turns out.

Soli Deo Gloria.  Only to God be the Glory.

    I feel like my posts have become repetitive regarding our isolation. I wonder if people understand that God is with us in all circumstances- good or bad. There are times when I waiver in this area. I always feel I should be doing something to help and God certainly doesn’t need my help.

    • Well, I am braving the real world tomorrow. Since the lockdown, people have forgotten to give to the food bank. I arranged an early pick-up of medicines, so I am not wasting a trip. The little things count. Since my Sunday school teacher passed away, I have one fewer person to call, just to talk, anyone could do that these days. As for the writing in a rut – I think I write about how everyone could handle this isolation better – probably too often. After all, I am an introvert.
