“None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.” Romans 8:40, The Message
Ever have “one of those days” when you feel as if the weight of the world is on your shoulders? Maybe your child is sick or a close friend has let you down, but no matter what solution you try in order to resolve the situation, a spirit of heaviness still remains in your heart – has anyone else been there?
It is when our hearts are overwhelmed, that we desperately need to run to God and His Word. Our current situation may make no sense at this time, but you can rest in the fact that God loves you and is for you. God alone can bring refreshment to your weary soul. I love our scripture today because it focuses on the fact that God loves us and there is nothing we can do or not do that will separate us from His love. Just take a few moments today and ponder that God loves you. He knows all about your situation and He will be with you to the end and make all things work together for your good simply because He loves you.
It is my prayer that you will meditate on the fact that God loves you. You may feel alone in this world, but God is right beside you and longing to love on you this very moment….the question is will you take the time to let Him do it? As you go through your day, I want you to continually tell yourself that God loves you. When you grab that piece of cake that you know you shouldn’t have – eat it with joy knowing that God loves you. When a friend disappoints you again– pray for them and ask that God would surround you with His perfect love that casts out all fear and torment. When you child is up all night with a fever – pray over him or her and declare that God loves you and your precious one. God is for you and loves you with an everlasting love. And there is nothing, absolutely nothing you can do about it!
“Lord, thank your for loving me at all times. You loved me when I was yet a sinner. You love me when I make good choices and you even love me and help me when I make wrong decisions. You are for me and therefore who can be against me? Please reveal this truth to me today. Amen.”
